Cocoon Pregnancy Center in unique role



“We talk to [our clients] to see if they need any spiritual counseling and share the gospel.” Bomstad said. “But we're just here to help with their needs and hopefully their spiritual needs as well.”


Since Bomstad signed on, the pregnancy center has grown immensely. From 2011 to 2013, the number of clients served has grown from 215 to 382. To make things better, CPRC is ready to grow even more.


This organization relies solely on donations, and its clients arrive by word of mouth with many referrals coming from large organizations.


“We get referrals from Health and Human Services, CPS, Salvation Army, Palo Pinto General Hospital, doctor's offices, Addiction Recovery Ministries, New Haven [and] churches,” Bomstad said.


CPRC is constantly in need of a multitude of items.


A few daily items include:

• Bibles (English and Spanish).

• Maternity clothes.

• Size preemie to 5 diapers.

• Size preemie to 3T clothes.

• Blankets.


A few larger items include:

• Infant car seats.

• Booster seats.

• Bassinets.

• Strollers.

• Cribs.


To this day, CPRC remains the only pregnancy center in Mineral Wells. All services are free and confidential. Hours of operation are Monday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.


For a full list of items needed or to learn more about CPRC, contact Bomstad at 817-694-0818.
