The question is, “What is the most important reason for supporting the Emerald Coast Coalition for Life?”

The answer is simple.

The mothers and their babies!

This year alone we have journeyed with 5 mothers who needed our continued love and support.

Because of your prayers and participation in our local efforts over 200 mothers and their babies have been spared from the pain of abortion since 2007.

These mothers were scheduled for an abortion… but their babies are alive today — and often it was the sight of faithful people just like you praying outside the abortion facility that made all the difference in the world.

Meet one of our mothers, Odette.

Odette is a beautiful mother we met over 6 years ago, during spring 2010 40 Days for Life campaign in Pensacola. We walked with her as she carried her precious son, who is our godson. Our families have stayed in contact over the years. Listen to her story below.

Because of blessings like Odette and her son, committed Emerald Coast Coalition for Life participants have put up a matching challenge of $5,000!

Every gift given between now and just before midnight on Saturday, December 31 — up to the $5,000 amount — will be DOUBLED!

Dear fellow humanitarian, friend, and neighbor;

With a true spirit of volunteerism based on a desire to serve God by serving the most disenfranchised in our community, over the past eight years, the Emerald Coast Coalition for Life (ECCFL) has led seventeen 40 Days for Life Campaigns in Pensacola.  This peaceful, prayerful ministry works to offer prayer, material support, and assistance to pregnant women in their most desperate hour of need.  Every Thursday and Friday, in the early hours of the morning, ECCFL volunteers provide hope to the most hopeless in our community, pregnant and scared mothers.  In addition, the ECCFL works to assist mothers and fathers who have experienced the tragic loss of a child during pregnancy, to obtain hope and healing through the Project Rachel ministry.  Renowned for our “commitment and dedication to providing outstanding care and humanitarianism” the ECCFL founding executive director, Ernie Cyr, received the 2016 coveted Frist Humanitarian Award.  In July, our founder was also awarded the prestigious pro-life leadership award from the international 40 Days for Life ministry.

Overall, the best way to understand our organization’s service ethic is in the motto of our executive director, “Be available, listen, provide solutions, remain committed, and above all, do it all out of Love.”
