As of recently, Pregnancy Resource Center of Carroll, Haralson and Heard counties, Carrollton, Georgia received a generous grant from the Community Foundation of West Georgia to go towards purchasing a new ultrasound machine. In conjunction with the Georgia Baptist Ministry Healthcare Foundation, this project was partially funded by a grant from the Community Foundation of West Georgia. The Community Foundation of West Georgia partners with local nonprofit organizations, individuals and companies, to increase opportunities to serve those in need, to beautify and to enhance the quality of life for the people of Carroll, Haralson and Heard Counties. The GBHCMF encourages the development of new ideas within the health care community as well as nurture innovation among the nonprofit organizations within the region through the distribution of their grants.
This new ultrasound machine is an updated version of the outdated one they had prior. With technological advancement, they were not able to produce on the same level with their outdated version as they could have been with the updated version. The new ultrasound machine will allow the sonographers to generate clearer picture imaging and make it a lot easier and accessible to efficiently complete ultrasound appointments. “We saw the urgency of our clients needing answers for their pregnancies. An updated ultrasound machine was the answer in aiding towards meeting these needs. We are beyond grateful to Georgia Baptist Ministry Healthcare Foundation and the Community Foundation of West Georgia for granting us these funds to allow us to meet these needs.” says Karmen Stamps, Executive Director.
