A bit of our history...

St. Juan Diego Women’s Center was founded in 1986 in San Jose, California. The Center is consecrated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the Pro-Life movement and protector of unborn children and their mothers.

For over 30 years, our counselors have provided a nurturing, caring environment and aided thousands of families in crises. The women we help have "crisis pregnancies". They are told by society that they are unwanted, unloved and that their children in utero are "clumps of cells". Some face a diagnosis with genetic issues. Without education and counseling, love and support, they suffer emotionally and financially. They don't feel valued and they are taught their unborn children are disposable. 

We provide essential core needs including compassion counseling, financial support, clothing for their children, education about their growing babies and continuous support. All of these are essential to thrive, and we provide these items to a worldwide group of young women, to show them the love of Christ.  We supply everything we offer free of charge, regardless of age, marital status, race, creed, religion or economic status.  We engage and connect "communities that have" with "communities that need".

Our Vision

A world without abortion.

A world where women are not ostracized or outcast for choosing LIFE for their unborn children. 

Our Mission

To support women through Birth and Beyond, and for choosing LIFE for their unborn babies, in a Christ- centered environment.
