Alecia's passion for reaching underserved communities is what drove her to be a nurse. While attending a conference, she met the Executive Director (ED) of a Care Net Pregnancy Center from Miami, FL. This ED challenged Jones, "I was asked to find the statistics on abortion for the state of New York. I had been a nurse for over 20 years and I didn't know the abortion statistics for my state," Jones recalls.
 
After learning more about New York City's alarming abortion statistics, particularly in Black and Hispanic communities, Jones was driven to establish the center in Jamaica, Queens.

New Beginnings Center of Hope offers practical support and resources to women and men in Queens and the surrounding areas. Alecia's dedication to serving in pregnancy center ministry, even in a state that is hostile to life-affirming work, has taught her many things.

Alecia also serves as a Center Services Specialist with Care Net, where she has the opportunity to encourage and equip fellow pregnancy center leaders. She shares with new center directors, "I learned resilience, perseverance, I learned what was needed... and those are the things that new directors need to know, it won't happen overnight. You're going to have to work hard but listen, at the end of the day, the crop is life, the harvest is peace, and there is transformation at the end."

While abortion is legal in New York, it is not rare. 59,344 children’s lives were terminated in their mothers’ wombs in 2020.

She recognizes the importance of dispelling the misinformation that surrounds pregnancy centers, and emphasizes the importance of communicating the heart behind their work - the Pro Abundant Life movement that strengthens families. 

As Roland and Alecia discuss in the interview, New York is one of the states with the highest number of abortions, with 59,344 lives lost to abortion in 2020 alone. This statistic is staggering, and underscores the importance of centers like New Beginnings Center of Hope.

The work done by pregnancy centers is often misunderstood and misrepresented. Alecia encourages pregnancy center leaders to stay focused on their mission, which is to provide hope, support, and resources to women and men facing unplanned pregnancies. These centers offer practical support such as free pregnancy tests, counseling, and material resources like diapers and formula. They also offer post-abortion counseling and support to women who have already undergone an abortion.

Alecia Jones is an example of a true leader in pregnancy center ministry. Her passion for serving underserved communities, her resilience in the face of opposition, and her commitment to the Pro Abundant Life movement are inspiring. The work done by pregnancy centers like New Beginnings Center of Hope is vital, and it is important to continue supporting and promoting these centers, as they help to build stronger, healthier communities and promote the dignity of all human life.

Can you take 30-seconds to sign a pledge against abortion and infanticide?

Some pro-choice activists now publicly defends infanticide. As believers in Jesus Christ, we know that every baby deserves protection and that abortion breaks God's heart.

Planned Parenthood and their allies promise horrific new abortion laws across America unless we act.

Say, “I stand with other believers against abortion and infanticide."
