Support Next Step Pregnancy and Relationship Center

Monetary Donation

Next Step Pregnancy and Relationship Center is a non-profit organization fully funded by local individuals and churches; we do not receive any government grants or funding. In addition, while we are associated with Heartbeat International, we do not receive any monetary support from them.  Your monthly support keeps our doors open and our Client Advocates trained and ready to serve the people in this community.

There are a few options when supporting us financially:

  • One-time or monthly tax-deductible donation through PayPal (click donate below)

  • Mail a check to us: Next Step Pregnancy and Relationship Center: 902 D Avenue, La Grande OR 97850. Make your check payable to Next Step PRC.

  • Deliver your donation by hand to our office (and get a tour!). We are located on the corner of 3rd Street and D Avenue in La Grande (902 D Avenue).

In addition, we have a select group of individuals who have volunteered to pay for special-order items clients have earned through the Earn While You Learn program (such as new carseats). If you would like to learn more about joining this special team, please contact our office at (541) 963-6918.

Other Support

If you have a heart for young people and their families, consider other ways to support Next Step. Below is a list of opportunities:

  • Baby Bottle Boomerang Fundraiser: Host this fundraiser at your church or organization. We will provide you with baby bottles to distribute for individuals to fill them with spare change, bills, or a check. After a period of time collect the bottles and return them to the Next Step office. If you would like to participate in this fundraiser contact our office at (541) 963-6918.

  • Next Step Helper: Do you like to keep things clean, nice, and neat? Next Step always needs an extra hand. You can sort clothes, create pleasing displays, help clean our building, and organize donations.  Call the office to find out more!

  • Client Advocate: Client Advocates are volunteers trained to work specifically with Next Step clients. These women are carefully selected and go through an interview and training process using Heartbeat International’s The Love Approach. Training takes place over several weeks or months averaging three hours a week. The training period varies due to availability of the trainees and trainers.  If you are interested, please call the office at (541) 963-6918 or stop by during office hours and request a Volunteer Information Packet and get a tour of the office.

  • Stay Up-to-Date: Sign up for our quarterly newsletter and receive information about what’s happening at Next Step Pregnancy and Relationship Center. If you would like to get this publication (either by mail or email) please contact our office.

  • Prayer Warrior:  We cannot exist without prayer!  Please pray for our clients and volunteers. In addition, pray that more individuals would feel led to join the Next Step team. If you would like to be added to our monthly prayer email please contact us.
