“This event is our largest fundraiser of the year and helps us continue to expand our reach and services to ensure low-income women and teens who are pregnant have the resources and support system they need to become amazing mothers to healthy babies,” said Marie Leatherby, executive director, Sacramento Life Center.
The Sacramento Life Center’s mission is to offer compassion, support, resources and free medical care to women and couples facing an unplanned or unsupported pregnancy. The Sacramento Life Center’s licensed Sac Valley Pregnancy Clinic includes a primary clinic and two Mobile Medical Clinics that provide all services for free, including pregnancy tests, STD tests, ultrasounds, counseling for men and women, education and resource referrals.
