We are the Guadalupe Workers, and our goal is to help all of our mothers find the freedom to love their children from conception to death, especially here in southwest Detroit. Guadalupe Workers is a tax deductible 501(c)3 non- profit organization that offers unique support to women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies, and we have been sidewalk counseling for 17 years. Volunteers from Guadalupe Workers stand outside the abortion clinics in Detroit, and engage women in loving conversation about their options. If a women is open to it, we take her to the nearest ultrasound machine that is available to give her a free ultrasound of her baby. This, coupled with the financial assistance and counseling that Guadalupe Workers provides, God-willing, is often all that it takes to save the lives of these precious babies. From there, Guadalupe Workers, through generous donations, is able to support these mothers in a multitude of ways- with clothing, transportation, furniture, educational classes, childcare, even rent and housing.
The problem in the past has been the inaccessibility of local ultrasound machines. Local pregnancy centers are only open sporadically, and often not on high-traffic abortion days (specifically, Saturdays). Guadalupe Workers had recently been blessed to secure an office in the heart of Mexicantown, Detroit, and has had an influx of volunteer nurses who are in the process of being trained to provide these life-saving ultrasounds.
We have been blessed with a new location in the heart of Mexican Town, a medical director and nurses to perform the ultrasounds. The Michigan Department of Community Health reports that 26,594 abortions took place in Michigan during 2017. Our goal is to dramatically reduce the number of abortions in our community, through radically loving and supporting the mothers we work with.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We have paired up with a non-profit company out of Seattle called 4US who will help with the cost of the machine. While they are willing to pay 50%, we still need to raise the other 50% ($13,900) in order to secure the machine. All of our donations go to helping the women directly, and with the recent purchase of the office in Mexicantown, we simply do not have the funds.
Please make it possible for us to begin the work that God is calling us to in southwest Detroit.

We have some fantastic news to share with you!
Through this campaign, a generous person has come forward with a gently used ultrasound machine to purchase at a much lower price! We are so excited about this new development, and are contantly in awe of the ways that God works through others to provide what we need.
We are lowering the fundraising goal substantially to reflect the new total price of the project as a whole. Thank you so much for your generosity. We are so close to the finish line, please help us raise this last little bit so we can open Guadalupe Workers Pregnancy Center as soon as possible. God bless you all for all of your prayers and support!!
