Sunrise Women's Clinic Hires New Director, Starts Capital Fundraising Campaign
The Sunrise Women's Clinic in Sidney has quadrupled the number of visits to over 400 in just the past two years, demonstrating the tremendous need for its services in the community. The clinic provides counseling and ultrasounds to women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy under the direction and supervision of a volunteer medical director who is a local physician licensed to practice medicine in Montana. Rachel Sonnenberg is the newly hired director for the clinic.
In order to provide a more energy efficient building and pleasant environment for patients, the Clinic has undertaken some remodeling projects including new siding and windows and providing better patient access. They also wish to turn the back yard into a memorial garden which will provide a peaceful spot for patients as well as a space for small group and donor events. The remaining mortgage on the building needs to be paid off as well to ensure that more donor funds are going directly to patient services.
Currently, almost 70% of donations go towards patient services, with under 6% going to management. The remaining funds are spent to fundraise for operations.
The total needed to fulfill the needs of the Sunrise Women's Clinic is $65,000. The clinic is supported locally. They do not receive funds from any state or government source and so they are asking the caring businesses and individuals in this community to "Invest in the lives of the women, children and families of our area."
The Vision of Sunrise Women's clinic is: We envision a community where God's love for life is embraced, each pregnancy is welcomed as a miracle, and all human life from conception on is love and protected.
