With its recent closing, some may feel there is a health care void in the Big Country.
However, area churches and institutions are making it known that they are available and willing to provide health assistance to women, especially those who struggle with a pregnancy decision.
"We don't want anybody to feel their needs are not being met," says Father Fred Nawarskas.
Nawarskas of Holy Family Catholic Church says it is important for people in the Big Country to know there are places they can still turn to for help.
"We know that they do many things at Planned Parenthood, that they provide many services and we want to make sure that those are still provided somehow," Nawarskas continues.
Area churches will be partnering with local organizations like St. Vincent de Paul in Abilene to help women in need.
"All of our clothing items in our store is donated to us and the profits that we make off of them is how we help the people of the Big Country," says Trinell Couch, the president of St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Profits are used to help those in need of health care and even financial assistance with things like rent, utilities and clothing.
The manager of St. Vincent de Paul's Thrift Store, Gloria Deleon says, "When you come and shop here, you're helping us help others."
The catholic church and local organizations have a mission of cultivating a heart which sees, promising to be there for women in their time of need.
"We need to stand together. When you stand together, nobody is alone out here. It is beautiful to have someone to reach out to, and that's what we're here for," Deleon adds.
