PROMISS is a pregnancy medical program dedicated to saving lives and protecting futures.
We accomplish this mission 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 children from ages three to six 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.
WHO WE ARE
PROMISS is a 501 C-3 faith-based ministry that provides hope to those unprepared for pregnancy and parenting. Many of those we served often feel scared, overwhelmed, and alone. When you invest in PROMISS, you enable these families to know they are not alone. PROMISS will support them throughout their pregnancy and after their child is born. They will have someone to walk with them and prepare them for childbirth, parenting, or adoption.
Life-Affirming Medical Clinics - Gautier MS and Lucedale MS
Our medical team is trained in pregnancy testing and confirmation. A limited, obstetrical ultrasound is offered at no cost to determine the existence of an intrauterine pregnancy.
Teen Pregnancy Prevention Education- TPPE
PROMISS offers TPPE to youth at risk for out of wedlock and teen pregnancy. Youth and unwed adults are encouraged to postpone physical intimacy until marriage. Bright Futures is the title for PROMISS's TPPE project.
PROMISS provides essential support to women unprepared for pregnancy and parenting. Mommy and baby items are provided for attendance of prenatal and parenting classes. Inexperienced parents are educated on how to meet the physical, emotional, and intellectual needs of their child. Topics such as "How to put your baby to sleep" and "Childproofing your home" are favorites among those attending the "Earn While You Learn" Program. When participants complete a healthy step like attending a prenatal appointment or a homework assignment, they are awarded with "baby bucks" that they use to purchase needed baby or maternity supplies in the MOM and ME store.
