As we reflect back on 2020 and look hopefully toward 2021, we are so pleased with, and grateful for, the growth we have experienced this past year. We have received the support of generous donors, the dedication of our professional staff, and the gratitude of the women we have helped to make life-affirming decisions that both they and their baby could live with. We will go forth faithfully continuing to build a Culture of Life in Phoenix.

Today was the Grand Opening of the new Phoenix Women’s Clinic at 8326 N. 7th Street, and we saw our first client! Both of our Life Choices Women’s Clinic locations have now been re-branded with the new name Phoenix Women’s Clinic. This brand name will make us easier to find in internet searches, and even more attractive to women seeking our pregnancy and medical services.

Construction was completed, and we received our Certification of Occupancy! We are so excited to get moved in to the new location and begin a new chapter in offering help and hope to women in our community.
With just a few utility installations left, the clinic is really coming together. While finish work is taking place inside the building, the focus has shifted to the outside of the building. A fresh coat of paint really makes the building look clean and fresh, and a wonderful pop of color has brought it alive in our chosen hues of blue (a Marian inspired blue of course!)
Unfortunately, our sign remodel has been delayed due to a death in the family of the sign company with which we had contracted. Please offer a prayer for the deceased and his family. We are soliciting new bids and designs and moving forward on this task.
Work on the parking lot has been planned. At this stage of the project, we will just make some minor improvements. In Phase II of this project, an additional 30′ of building space will be added to the rear of the building, and this may cause some additional digging to take place. We will wait until the Phase II building has been completed before we do the final resurfacing of the parking lot.
Drywall has been installed and finished, and the walls were primed and painted. Durable and beautiful tile flooring has gone down throughout. The restrooms got a clean and decorative tile installation and the fixtures are installed.
Interior windows are being installed and cabinets are being installed to allow us to neatly organize our staff reception and medical assistant areas, medical lab area, and exam rooms. Our countertops will have just the right amount of “sparkle.”
We passed our interior framing inspection, yea! Work is really progressing now! Interior walls are going in and the rooms are taking shape. Insulation is being sprayed in to keep us cool and comfortable in the summer, and warm and toasty in the winter. Flooring is next.

This has been a busy month for our Foreman Gracie, and our Contractor Jeff. They have made great strides!
Gracie is now standing on her own! and ready to take a step forward on getting this project completed.
Jeff created the room layouts with stud walls. Windows were cut into the block wall on the North side of the building to provide some natural light in the office spaces. The electrical wiring was installed and outlet boxes were placed in each room. The external and internal plumbing trenches were completed and pipes were installed and connected to the Restrooms and Medical Rooms. City of Phoenix Inspectors were at the new clinic today, and…drumroll…
On Monday, August 3rd, the City of Phoenix completed their inspection of the new clinic plans, and we received approval to start construction! Our contractor is now focused on taking our vision from blueprint to reality by creating the room spaces. With this inspection completed, we are well on our way to #BuildingForTheirLives!

COVID-19 Pandemic. Remodeling activities have been effected as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and the health concerns associated with this pandemic. Many City of Phoenix offices have been closed or hours have been cut, so the permit process has pretty much slowed to a crawl or stopped.
Architectural plans have been drawn up and submitted to the City of Phoenix for approval and permits. Interior and Exterior designs have become working plans.

Open House. LCWC hosted a Open House to share our renovation project plans and start the transformation to our new North Phoenix clinic location. Having started the interior demolition, we invited our guests to take a swing at the past as we prepared for the future! (hard hats were optional).
Prayer for a Successful Remodel Project. “The God of heaven Himself will help us succeed; therefore, we will arise and build! We will trust His Word and believe in the Sovereign Lord who always keeps His Promises.” Nehemiah 2:20
Blessing. Fr. Dale Craig, SOLT, Pastor of the neighboring Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church attended our Open House and blessed the new North Phoenix clinic building and the supporters in attendance.
We have been working on plan ideas for the overall layout of the interior space. The existing building will house the reception area, offices and exam rooms as part of our Phase I remodel. We have also planned a Phase II which will build an extension in the back of the building to give us the space needed for an additional counseling room, a classroom with restroom, a staff kitchen and bathroom, baby boutique & storage, and chapel space.
Life Choices Women’s Clinics has embarked on a bold move to reach more women and save more babies from abortion. We have purchased a building and will be moving our 7th Street clinic to the property south of our current location.
This new property has 100 ft. of street frontage and a large sign, and will provide us with unprecedented visibility to pro-life women’s health care. We are working with a Contractor to design and remodel this building to become a state-of-the art medical clinic to enable us to serve even more women.
