Mission Statement To minister with the love of Christ to the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of women, their partners, and parents who face the trauma of an unplanned pregnancy.
Background Statement The vision for Liberty Women’s Clinic was birthed in 1997 and our doors opened in October 2002. In 2006, we began the process of converting to a medical clinic in order to offer the powerful tool of ultrasound. In August 2007, the Clinic was named a center of excellence by Focus on the Family, received the Options Ultrasound grant and began offering limited obstetrical ultrasound. LWC also provides physical support and education to our clients. By 2013, LWC expanded with a Mobile Clinic that serves inner Kansas City with the same services as the Liberty Clinic. Currently, LWC is operating in a new facility that has triple the space and (at minimum) double client capacity.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
The Liberty Women’s Clinic opened its doors in October 2002. We have experienced many successes and challenges due to the substantial growth of the organization.
 
From our small beginnings, the Board has made many difficult decisions in order to foster growth and expansion of the organization. Some of the decisions include converting to medical services, adding staff, increasing marketing efforts which resulted in increased client and donor base and launching our Mobile Clinic to reach additional clients in inner Kansas City.
 
By far, the biggest challenge in the past fourteen years for the Board was to make the decision to convert to a medical clinic and to follow through with the demanding process of reaching that goal. Long-term planning, financial projections and staff additions including adding a Medical Director were some of the tough decisions that faced the Board. Working together as a team was imperative.
 
In addition, the launch of the Mobile Clinic created a whole new realm of challenges. Reaching clients in the urban core constituted a new marketing perspective and implementation.
 
While the Board is not involved in the day-to-day operations of the Clinic, we have carried the responsibility of ensuring positive outcomes in the growth process. Funding has been received through major events as well as from an increasing individual donor base and some of these funds have been specifically earmarked for stated objectives. Goals have been set to accomplish these objectives within promised time frames and results have been reported to donors as a means of showing accountability.
 
The Board continues to set the bar high in order to accomplish our mission and inform donors who give sacrificially.

Short-Term Success

Short term successes will be implemented by various marketing strategies including being recognized in nearby high schools, churches and neighborhoods. 

Long-Term Success The goal for Liberty Women’s Clinic Mobile Medical Clinic is to continue building client marketing to increase client visits in 2016. We would also like to see continued community relations to establish LWC in the urban core.
Program Success Monitored By The measurement of our success is based on the number of annual client visits from women who might be experiencing an unintended pregnancy and subsequently the number of lives saved and changed.
Examples of Program Success

Year to date, the Mobile Clinic has provided 228 services with 44 total client visits. 

Description LWC's ideal client would continue her prenatal education upon choosing life for her child. Care Support and Inform classes (CSI) are one-on-one education classes with a nurse covering a wide range of topics: health and nutrition, delivery, breastfeeding, postpartum, etc. Each client also receives pre-natal vitamins for participating (via Vitamin Angels).

CEO Comments
Upcoming program at LWC: 
STI testing:  One in four young women between the ages of 14 and 19 in the United States – or 3.2 million teenage girls – is infected with at least one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STI). This poses a significant health risk including infertility and cervical cancer and therefore STI testing is a necessary health priority. Any kind of sexual activity can potentially transmit a STI – many do not exhibit symptoms. Liberty Women’s Clinic clients are sexually active as well as often low income. LWC would like to offer STI testing free of charge and provide the opportunity for referrals for medical treatments and education on the benefits of sex-free dating. LWC clients are primarily residents of Clay County.
