4 Becky Perrault, a spokesperson for Ferriday’s Care Pregnancy Clinic, addressed board members with information about the clinic’s purpose.

“Tonight I just wanted to get with leaders of our community and tell you about this clinic that is opening,” Perrault said. “We want to ask for your support, your prayers and help in getting this thing started.”

The clinic is currently open for two days out of the week — Mondays from 9 a.m. to noon and 2 to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m.

Perrault said the clinic is part of a state-wide project offering health and services to young women who are having unplanned pregnancies.

The clinic will serve to teach young men and women how to be good parents and help supply them with help throughout pregnancy and the early stages of parenthood.

Perrault said within four to six weeks, the clinic would host its grand opening and begin serving the public five days a week thereafter.
