Alight Care Center Celebrates 9 years of ministry in Troy, NY

Alight Care Center's 7th annual "Making a Difference in Your Community" fundraising banquet was held on Monday, May 12, 2008 at Michael's Banquet House in Latham, New York.

Alight is a full service pregnancy care center that provides educational and support services to pregnant woman and families in Troy, NY. Alight's covering organization, Arise & Build Community Ministries, was incorporated in September 1998. Assuming the name of Alight Care Center For Women, their doors were opened to the public in February 1999. They are now known simply as the Alight Care Center.

I was blessed beyond measure to spend the evening celebrating with Alight's staff, volunteers and many supporters. Keynote speaker was Dr. Bob Paeglow, founding director of Compassion in Action/Koinonia Primary Care located at the Capital Region Prayer and Healing Center, a Christian ministry Dr. Bob co-founded with Reverend Peter Whitehouse. Koinonia provides primary care and mental health care to the poor in Albany's West Hill neighborhood and beyond.

Join with me in prayer for Alight's ongoing ministry in New York's capital region
