After a full year of renovation efforts, special fundraising and gathering volunteer support, the New Life Clinic is only weeks away from moving into its new downtown location at 100 S. South St. in Wilmington.

From the purchase of this deserted building and property in spring 2014 to today, NLC has made “extraordinary changes that will certainly benefit the entire community.”

The clinic is a pregnancy resource center serving nearly 1,000 clients each year. Expansion will allow continued services of pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, parenting support, and material items to be located in a larger, more central location. It will also usher in the possibility of providing additional services as well as education and support for moms, dads and families.

New Life Clinic staff and board members anticipate a move to their new facility the last week of March, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to follow shortly thereafter.

The clinic expresses special thanks to board member and project leader Jack Hatten “for his dedicated efforts and countless hours offered.” They also thank the numerous friends and donors of NLC as well as volunteers (including Wilmington College students) who have had a hand in the renovation process.
