Branches Pregnancy Resource Center has served the women and families of our community since 1985. We are a faith based organization and a 501(c)(3) non-profit. All of our funding comes from local individuals, businesses, churches and charities who wish to support the families we serve. We receive no state or federal funding or grants. As a non-profit, we are not in this “business” for financial gain but for well being of our community. Our doors stay open and our services are offered only because of generous donations from caring financial partners.
All of our services are free of charge because we believe every person making decisions about their pregnancy deserves to have information and support so that they can make the best decision for their pregnancy. And we are committed to empowering families, because strong families make strong communities.
Branches PRC is a pregnancy resource center, meaning we have information, resources and referrals to share with our clients. We are not a medical facility and do not have any medical services. We do not offer or refer for pregnancy terminations.
We do have pregnancy tests, parenting classes, free baby and maternity items and more. See our full list of services here. We would love to help you on your journey.
MEET THE STAFF
Branches Pregnancy Resource Center works hard to ensure we have the best staff to serve you. All our team members truly care about our community and families. And we look forward to meeting you!
Jean Davis, Executive Director
The Lord’s calling on Jean to Branches Pregnancy Resource Center began eight years ago when she became a client of a nearby Pregnancy Resource Center. After obtaining an Associate Degree in Biblical Theology from Northpoint Bible College, Jean served in ministry supporting women with life-controlling issues. While Jean has a heart for sharing Christ, in her role as Executive Director, her initiative is to share her gifts and redemption story as an overcomer of human trafficking by educating, equipping, and supporting the women and men within the local community on the importance of life. The vision that the Lord has given her for the future of Branches includes providing medical pregnancy services to the community through the continual growth of partnerships with volunteers, donors, and community organizations. In her free time, Jean loves spending time with her son, writing and publishing books, and sharing the Gospel.
Caroline Gold, Client Services Manager
God called me to Branches when He called me to serve the community of Brattleboro. I had volunteered for years at a pregnancy resource center in my hometown of Woodstock, Georgia. Now, through the provision of God, I have the honor of supporting and equipping both the clients and volunteers in our center. My passion for this ministry is that we would serve faithfully and be a source of hope and life to the community. I am currently living in Dummerston. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, climbing, and all things outdoors.
Gail Veenema, Client Advocate/Motherhood Program Team Leader
Gail has had a heart for this center for many years before joining the volunteer staff in 2015, after retiring. She is passionate about family and parenting. The struggles of growing up with an alcoholic father taught her about facing life’s challenges and she now shares those lessons with the moms we serve. Gail is able to share many life lessons she has learned during more than 45 years of marriage and raising kids. She and her husband live in Dummerston and have 3 adult children and 9 grandchildren.
David LeBlanc, Fatherhood Program Team Leader
David joined the volunteer staff in 2016 to lead the center’s outreach to men. His passion is to share with men about real fatherhood and to help them reach their God-given potential. David knows the struggles of fatherhood well, as he, with his wonderful wife, are raising 3 amazing girls, who he describes as “the joy of my life”. David runs his own business and serves as assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel in Townshend. His role as a husband and father are important to him, as well as his faith and helping others.
