The Agape Pregnancy Center, which is moving to a new home on Treaty Road, must be out of its current location by the end of the month.

According to Jodi Barlass, founder and director of the center, there's a lot of work to get done before then.

"We need to add a new bathroom to the new facility," Barlass said. "It needs new lights, a vanity and a toilet."

Workdays are scheduled at the new facilities for the next three Saturdays, Nov. 9, 16 and 23, beginning at 9 a.m.

Activities include construction, cleaning, painting, decorating and landscaping.

"There will be something for everyone to do," Barlass said.

Snacks and drinks will be provided.

Supplies needed to finish the updating of the clinic include sheet rock, doors, 2x4s and wainscoting.

The actual physical moving of the items in the current building will be done on Nov. 26.

An ultrasound machine, which was donated to Agape following a fund-raiser earlier this year has already been moved into the building.

"We're really excited about the move," Barlass said. "We're moving from our current facility of about four rooms to one with 12 rooms."

Items needed to help fill those rooms include a love seat, a couch, two office chairs with arms, four wingback chairs, a conference table with eight to 10 chairs, two end tables, two TVs with VCRs, two TV stands or entertainment centers, four locking four-drawer file cabinets and three desk lamps.

lso needed are two floor lamps, end table lamps, three computer desks, four bookcases, a paper shredder and a coat tree.

Barlass reminded everyone that the donations are tax deductible.

She said that she sees the move as providing an opportunity for the center to do more of the things which were dreamed about when the center started.

The new facility, on the east side of Will Rogers Turnpike, is in a location more convenient for many of the center's clients.

"This will actually be more central for our clients," Barlass said. "We have many clients from Jay, Baxter Springs (Kan.) Treece (Kan.), and Seneca, Mo.

"It's also good for confidentiality. Clients won't have to come to the middle of Miami."

Pick-up of donations may be made by calling Agape at 542-7272.
