Our groups are structured and follow a ten-week healing program.

Our confidential atmosphere is designed to allow participants to share their abortion experiences with others, and know they are not alone.  You are not obligated to share anything you are not comfortable with.  This group is for your support. These groups can be co-ed, depending on who requests participation.  Hearing the perspective from the other gender can bring helpful insights to the participants.

Groups will meet on a weekly basis.  Location, dates and times will be determined based on participants enrolled.  Committed participation is important for the sake of all members. Please keep this in mind if considering this option.  We run groups when there are enough participants.  You can be put on a waiting list if there is nothing available at the time you inquire.  Our groups are confidential.

If interested, please contact us and we can put you on a list. In Kansas call or text (913)-621-2199. In Missouri call or text (816)-591-3804.

Dear Friend,

As you sit wondering why you’ve decided to come here tonight…what has brought you to this point in your life…how can you ever begin to express your feelings to the others sitting in this room, know that you are not alone.

You sit here tonight because the Holy Spirit has guided you here. You’ve come to this point in your life because you have decided that you cannot go on with the weight of past choices dragging you down. You sit here terrified that as you share your thoughts and feelings with the others in this room they will be horrified at the things you’ve done…but they won’t. How do I know this, you ask?

In February of 1998 I sat in your chair, I wore your shoes, and I had your same thoughts. It had been 16 years since I’d had the abortion. I had never actually said the words to anyone…not even myself! I was certain that I had committed the sin of all sins, that I could never forgive myself, and that God would never have me back! I had the dreadful feeling that I would never make it through this.

I am writing to you now to let you know that you are supposed to be here today. That the dreadful feeling will go away. I want you to know that Jesus didn’t die on the cross for all sins except yours and mine. He died on the cross because HE LOVES US. GOD WANTS US BACK!

Friend, know that God thinks you’re beautiful. Know that you can and will make it through this. Know that you can have a happy and healthy life that is normal again. Know that I’m praying for you each and every day. But most of all, know that I made it and you will too!

Feedback from Former Attendees:

“I was so tired of living with the pain of this choice …..The women in my group became very close over a short amount of time and were huge supports for one another…”

“Twenty-five years may seem like a long time but that is how long I carried the guilt , shame, and pain I felt over my abortion. Then I heard of Project Rachel. It took me a year to finally get the nerve to call and ask to join the support group. I am glad that I went.”

“Project Rachel helped me open up and heal the wound in my heart. For the first time I was able to tell my story to a group of women who had different circumstances but shared the same situation……[Project Rachel] let me grieve fully for my unborn child’s forgiveness and my own forgiveness…. There was no judgement or condemnation, only love and compassion.”
