The Hope Life Center Vision Tour is your opportunity to see and hear firsthand how Hope Life Center is erasing abortion from the state of Illinois.


Tours are an information-only presentation of our organization meant to give you an overview of our mission, vision, and current effectiveness as well as step you through the process and services a patient experiences when she walks through the doors of Hope Life Center.


Tours are typically the second Tuesday of each month.


Tours are for information only. We won't ask for money. We simply want to give you an opportunity to see first-hand how Hope Life Center is changing lives and reversing the abortion trend in our community.


Reservations are free, but space is limited. Reserve your seat at the Web site listed above, or contact us at 815-625-5376 with your name email, phone number, and the names of the individuals attending with you.


Don't see a time that works for you? We would be happy to schedule a tour for you and anyone you would like to introduce to our ministry. Give us a call!
