Info meeting

May 19 to form

Options for Women

An information meeting will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, May 19, at the Greater Poplar Bluff Area Chamber of Commerce, 1111 W. Pine Blvd. to determine support for an "Options for Women Center" in Poplar Bluff.

"Options for Women" is a non-profit, community outreach program that offers medical quality pregnancy tests, limited first trimester ultrasounds, advocacy services, educational services, material resources/assistance and community referrals to those facing unexpected pregnancies. All of the services are free and confidential.

This meeting will focus on learning about the programs and services offered by "Options for Women," and organizing a support network of local churches and businesses. There is a grass roots interest in this clinic already. And an ultrasound machine will be needed to help in the program to make "Options for Women" a success.

For information, contact Sam Ruffino, 573-255-3693, or Robert Smith, 573-776-5019.
