Birthright celebrated its 25-year anniversary in Council Bluffs on Tuesday.
As an international nonprofit organization, Birthright volunteers support men and women through crisis pregnancy. Located on 427 East Kanesville Boulevard, a majority of the organization’s staff are volunteers, said Barb Rhoades, director of the Birthright of Council Bluffs.
“We’re not a medical facility. We support men and women, or someone who thinks they might be pregnant. Not medically, but more emotional and practical help,” said Rhoades.
Birthright of Council Bluffs has office hours Monday through Saturday at least three hours per day. By leaving a voicemail at 712-322-2100, Rhoades said someone will get back to you in less than 24 hours.
“It was a huge turnout with the Chamber of Commerce, and we were encouraged by that,” she said.
