Agency Visit
The Agency that I chose to interview is The Women’s Resource Center of Southern Nevada, a National organization of crisis pregnancy centers. The agency provides assistance to women, children, and men experiencing pregnancy related issues. All of their services are free, and client’s confidentiality is kept to the full extent allowable by law. They also offer peer counseling, pregnancy test, material items and a wide range of referrals.

The mission of this agency is to save as many unborn babies as possible, and to help the women get a new start with their lives.
