Waterleaf Women’s Center 
Be a witness of the Gospel of Life and volunteer at Waterleaf Women’s Center in Aurora. Waterleaf is looking for volunteers who have hearts to serve women facing an unplanned pregnancy. Your help is needed to support their mission and transform the fear of these women into confidence. There are many ways in which our St. John Neumann community can serve at Waterleaf. You can become a client advocate, an office volunteer, an Aspire instructor, a mentor, or a prayer warrior. They are also looking for Registered Nurses to donate their time and help them with their mission. If you feel called by any of these opportunities to serve or would like to learn more about their mission click HERE. Let’s answer the call to “Walk with Moms in Need.”
