MONTHLY GROUP THRIVE CLASSES
Our monthly group Thrive meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month. Presently, they are being held via Zoom until we can safely reconvene in-person meetings. We have an immediate need for volunteers who would like to lead these Zoom meetings on topics such as pregnancy, parenting, life skills, healthy relationships, tips for schooling at home, or Bible Studies. The possibilities are "virtually" endless. Rest assured, you won't be alone. Our patient care manager is present on each call to facilitate the flow of the meeting, to keep people muted, and to monitor the chats, etc. Would you be willing to help? Please use the link below to indicate your willingness to volunteer.
STOCK OUR BABY BOUTIQUE
Consider purchasing items for our Baby Boutique and having them shipped to our clinic or perhaps host an online baby shower! You will have the opportunity to bless the clients in our Thrive Program with items they need for their baby. We will provide you with a list of our immediate needs and you can shop from our Amazon account. If interested in a needs list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN
Launch a Baby Bottle Campaign to collect coins and cash in baby bottles and help fund Obria Medical Clinics Gwinnett. This is a great project for any type of group within the community.
To request baby bottles for your fundraising campaign, please click here and we'll be in touch!
SANCTITY OF LIFE SUNDAY
National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday was instituted in 1983 by President Reagan and is honored on the Sunday closest to the day on which the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions were handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 1973.
Obria is happy to send a representative from our organization to speak to your church or group about the sacredness of life and how it relates to our ministry. Presentations can last from 5-30 minutes, depending on your group and your requested purpose. Please email us at email@example.com to request a speaker for your church’s Sanctity of Human Life commemoration.
We also have two videos you could share with your church or group that relate to Sanctity of Life, including this video and a message from our Executive Director, Robin Mauck. Email Matt Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org to request copies of these videos to share.
Many churches also choose to participate in the baby bottle campaign in conjunction with their Sanctity of Human Life commemoration.
SPONSOR OR UNDERWRITE AN EVENT
Give back to the community by sponsoring or underwriting one of our events. Your sponsorship will show your corporate commitment to giving back to the community while helping Obria Medical Clinics Gwinnett meet the needs of women and families in Gwinnett County.
Walk for Life
We simply could not do the work we do without the help of dedicated volunteers.
Volunteers provide an invaluable contribution to the organization. We have six areas in which we utilize volunteers.
These volunteers coordinate our inventory and distribution of donated baby clothing, baby equipment, and baby supplies. They also assist our clients with their shopping needs.
Our nurses provide evidence-based medical services and education to our patients to aid them in making an informed decision. The nurses also perform pregnancy testing and limited STI/STD testing treatment to qualifying individuals.
PATIENT CARE ADVOCATES
These volunteers are responsible for direct contact with the patient who comes to Obria Medical Clinics needing services, including but not limited to, pregnancy testing, pregnancy advocacy, information on options, relationship consulting, and support services.
These volunteers help create a positive first impression by scheduling appointments, greeting patients, monitoring the waiting room, backing up the call center, and helping patients with paperwork.
CLIENT CARE ADVOCATES
These volunteers serve to mentor small groups of women enrolled in the Thrive Program. The CCA's role is to walk alongside our mothers as they go through their pregnancy and beyond, lending support and guidance. Initially, the CCA oversees group digital learning and later cultivates continued spiritual growth through the facilitation of life groups. Relationship building and mentoring are key components of this role. Additionally, these volunteers serve as a consistent and constant present in the lives of the women they mentor.
We need RDMS technicians and RNs trained in ultrasonography to perform limited ultrasounds in order to verify a viable pregnancy, calculate the gestational age, and show life to our patients.
We currently have volunteer openings for the following:
- Baby Boutique
- Client Care Advocate
- Patient Receptionist
