Change for Life is our annual fundraiser which allows individuals and local churches to band together to gather the resources necessary to help every woman in our community find the freedom to choose life. Find out if your church is participating by visiting this link, and clicking the donate button. All participating churches will be listed there.

This year’s Change for Life campaign will kick-off on Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, January 17th and wrap up on Sunday, February 21st. Baby bottles will be passed out at local churches to be taken home, filled with change, returned to church, and then used by Hope Life Center to save lives.

Four ways for you to participate . . .

  1. Pick up a bottle at your church on Sunday January 17th, take it home, fill it with loose change (we accept bills and checks too!), and return it to church by February 21st. Call us at 815-625-5300 to arrange to pick up and drop off a bottle if your church doesn’t have any available for you.
  2. Would you like to participate virtually? No problem, we still have a way for you to give. You can make an online donation here.
  3. Pray for abortion to be erased from our community. Use your bottle as a reminder to pray.
  4. Head up this event for your church. Contact Carol at 815-625-5300 or carol@hlcil.org for more details.

Join Us

At Hope Life Center we work hard every day to help pregnant mothers find the freedom to choose life and it’s working. We saw 115 lives saved through our clinics in Ottawa and Sterling last year. Our efforts bear even more fruit when coupled with the efforts of our local churches: the greatest tangible forces for righteousness and life in our community.

The most effective way for you to join us in our work to turn our culture from death to life is not to support us financially but to speak authoritatively on the Biblical truths surrounding the issues of life:

    • God is the Author of Life and as such possess the exclusive right to give and take life.
    • Every human life bears the image of God and is therefore worthy of nurture and protection.
    • God’s wisdom and provision is freely offered to men and women experiencing crisis pregnancy.
    • There is forgiveness in Christ for those with abortion in their past.
