COVID Update

We hope that you’ve been touched by the efforts of our amazing staff and volunteers that run the Birth & Beyond Women’s Center and with YOUR help, provided a wide range of loving counseling services, financial, spiritual & emotional support to courageous pregnant women not only throughout their entire pregnancy, but beyond as well.

For over 35 years, through Juan Diego YOU supported over 11,000 families with material needs ranging from diapers, clothing & baby furniture; YOU placed them in shelters & housing; YOU provided them counseling & education. We have been blessed with more than 1,200 babies born because of YOUR generosity.

As with many non-profits and businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown forced us to close our office doors in March 2020. The following letter explains the impact of that closure and our plans for the future:

Our History:

guadalupe

St. Juan Diego Women’s Center was founded in 1986 in San Jose, California. The Center is consecrated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the Pro-Life movement and protector of unborn children and their mothers.

For over 32 years, our counselors have provided a nurturing, caring environment and aided thousands of families in crises. The women we help have "crisis pregnancies." They are told by society that they are unwanted, unloved and that their children in utero are "clumps of cells." Some face a diagnosis with genetic issues. Without education and counseling, love and support, they suffer emotionally and financially. They don't feel valued and they are taught their unborn children are disposable.

We provide essential core needs including compassion counseling, financial support, clothing for their children, education about their growing babies and continuous support. All of these are essential to thrive, and we provide these items to a worldwide group of young women, to show them the love of Christ. We supply everything we offer free of charge, regardless of age, marital status, race, creed, religion or economic status. We engage and connect "communities that have" with "communities that need."
