Focus Pregnancy Help Center is seeking donations to help cover the cost of rent and operations. The center also is looking for volunteers to help staff the center and pray the rosary at its location at 86 University Ave. in Rochester.
“Our hope and desire is to have somebody here during the day for walk-ins,” said Mary Jost, codirector of the center and a member of Our Lady of Victory Church in Rochester.
The center, which was started more than a year ago by several Catholic parishioners, offers self-administered pregnancy testing, donated baby clothes, referrals, alternatives to abortions and counseling.
“We’d be more than happy to host workshops on abstinence, self-esteem or alternatives to abortion,” said Tucker Wilson, a member of St. Joseph Church in Penfield who is the center’s other codirector.
