Changing Lives...Saving Lives
We are in the planning process of launching this newest member of our family of pregnancy clinics. We have formed a Steering Committee to help spread awareness about these efforts to start Olathe Pregnancy Clinic (OPC). To date we have 103 members of this committee.
There is a pressing need for a pregnancy clinic in Olathe. Currently, there are no pregnancy clinics in Olathe. Additionally, according to the State of Kansas statistics, there are 900 abortions per year by Johnson County residents. We are focused on becoming a high volume clinic such as our our clinic, Wyandotte Pregnancy Clinic. In this way, Olathe Pregnancy Clinic will help to significantly reduce the number of abortions per year.
We have leased an excellent location for OPC - 2 blocks west of I-35 on Santa Fe behind QuikTrip. Address is 1313 E. Santa Fe. Our Mobile is also parked there.
We have begun a Capital Campaign to raise the needed monies for start-up costs and 2 to 3 years of operating costs. The campaign goal is $500,000 in combined cash plus 3-year pledges. We plan to open in 2018 at that point in time when our Capital Campaign has provided adequate resources.
Join our Capital Campaign to help launch OPC and download our Capital Campaign pledge card here. Questions/comments may be directed to Ron Kelsey OPC Steering Committee Chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-908-8290 (cell).
