Supporting and Empowering Women. Saving Lives.

Upcoming Events

We are holding regular monthly meetings on the last Monday of each month.
Please call (815) 385-2999 to confirm the date and reserve a spot. We would love to share with you what we are currently doing and our plans for the future.

1st Way regrets to announce that this year’s Pathway to Hope fundraising banquet scheduled for April 17th has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions limiting the size of public gatherings.

Phone calls are being made to Underwriters and Table Sponsors for this event. 

We are planning to reach out to all supporters via USPS and/or email to provide an update as to how we intend to move forward from the cancellation of our banquet due to the COVID-19 virus.  There is another deadly epidemic in our country taking over 2300 lives every day.  It’s called abortion and in this current climate of fear and isolation, we anticipate an even higher risk of abortion for women facing unplanned pregnancies.  Sustaining this ministry in the face of such fear and isolation is critical.

1st Way remains open and will continue our life-saving efforts at all costs during these uncertain times.  Our mission at 1st Way is to save lives.  Thank you for your continued support!

May the Lord bless and keep you.
