PROMISS is a pregnancy medical program dedicated to saving lives and protecting futures.
The PROMISS life-saving mission is accomplished through the following programs:
Option Ultrasound- A life-affirming medical program serving expectant parents and their preborn children. Services include pregnancy testing, pregnancy confirmations through ultrasound exams, medical consultations and community referrals.
Earn While You Learn Program- Expectant parents and inexperienced parents of children three and under earn baby and maternity items for completing prenatal and parenting lessons. Prenatal lessons cover the developmental stages throughout pregnancy as well as the healthy steps to promote healthier babies at low risk for premature birth and sudden infant death. Parenting lessons equip parents with the skills for providing a loving, nurturing environment for their baby that fosters physical, intellectual, and emotional growth.
Parenting by Heart- Volunteer or court ordered parents of infants and toddlers complete eight weeks of parenting training aimed at reducing the risk for child abuse and neglect.
Project Bright Futures- Teens and singles who are struggling with pressures to be sexually active outside of marriage are encouraged to think about, discuss, and practice using information to manage their sexual feelings. Information is imparted to help them resist social and peer pressure. Teen parents learn how to acquire and develop healthy relationships, effective parenting skills, good study habits, time management skills, and community resources.
