Heartbeat of Toledo, a pregnancy support center, is looking for volunteers to serve as patient advocates and parenting instructors at their Your First Look locations. Patient Services Director Leeann Beach describes the ideal volunteer as “one who has a willing heart and the ability to come alongside people on their journey,” which includes facing the possibility of pregnancy, and taking advantage of the free services Heartbeat offers, including free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, options counseling, and parenting classes.
Trained volunteers would be asked to serve about four hours/week at the East Toledo Center at 101 Main St., Suite 4, in the historic Weber Building, or at the Center at 4041 W. Sylvania Ave., Suite LL5 (across from Franklin Park Mall). Dads are welcome to volunteer, too, especially for the Just for Dads program offered on Thursday nights. More details are available by calling 419 720-0632 or 419 241-9131, or online at heartbeatoftoledo.org.
