Expectations Women's Center Open House
Expectations Women’s Center will host an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, April 28, for its new Lewisburg Office at 776 Bull Run Crossing, off of Route 45, next to La Primavera. The open house will be from 5-7 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m.
“We look forward to welcoming the Lewisburg community to come and see our new space,” said Pam Burkholder, executive director. “It’s been a while – the last time we celebrated a grand opening in Lewisburg was 1991.”
The Lewisburg Office was formerly located at 9 North Third Street, a basement facility the organization occupied since it opened. The relocation comes as Expectations Women’s Center anticipates expanding their services, including the addition of ultrasound. They currently offer confidential pregnancy tests, pregnancy options counseling, parenting education, relationship mentoring, information on STIs and reproductive health, baby supplies and post-abortion support free of charge.
The new facility is 4,900 total square feet and includes two mentoring rooms, one exam room, four administrative offices, one office exclusively for volunteers, lobby, large open meeting room and a room dedicated to the inventory of supplies they have for their clients. Part of the space remains unfinished and is currently being used for storage – Burkholder notes this provides plenty of room for growth. The new facility is on ground level, ADA accessible and the mentoring and exam rooms provide privacy for clients.
In an effort to ensure that clients are not lost due to transportation to the new locations, Expectations Women’s Center is working with other organizations, like LOVE Inc., to provide transportation to clients in the Lewisburg area.
The Lewisburg Office’s new location also houses HRG, Inc. and Generations Asset Management.
Expectations Women’s Center also has a Williamsport Office, located at 854 West Third Street, which will remain open at its current location. The organization serves five counties through their locations in Williamsport and Lewisburg.
RSVPs for the open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony are appreciated, but not required.
