Post Abortion Healing Program

“Making abortion a thing of the past…by refusing to let it steal, kill, and destroy the future.”-Rachel Frederick.  If you know of someone suffering the spiritual wound of abortion, please encourage them to seek healing. Our complimentary program offers safe and confidential sessions structured to compassionately support and strengthen both women and men struggling in the emotional aftermath of abortion. Our program coordinator has personally walked through this difficult struggle herself, finding healing and renewal, and now helps others do the same.

A time of education, inspiration and restoration – The DesOrmeaux Foundation hosts sessions that are held in a safe and confidential space allowing for discussion, workbook exercises, grief processing, testimonial offerings and more. This healing program is for those wounded with the grief and spiritual pain of abortion. Call our office for information and dates for future sessions. (Confidential)
