      Epiphany Caring For Life is a non-profit organization operating out of Church of the Epiphany in Coon Rapids, MN.  ECL has offered a wide variety of short and long term pregnancy support to women and their families in Anoka County since January 1997.  What do you need?  We are here to help.

     You can call ECL anytime - 24 hours/7 days a week.  All calls are strictly confidential.  If you need a resource referral, are you experiencing a difficult situation or just need to talk, we’re here to offer our support whenever you need it.  Please call the 24 hour care line (612) 803-2225 if you would like to schedule a maternity closet appointment, or if you are approved for a crib and need to pick it up. 

     The Epiphany Caring For Life maternity closet carries newborn to 2T baby clothing, seasonal clothing, baby bottles, blankets, crib sheets, breast pumps, maternity clothing, and much more.  If you would like to request other baby equipment or would like to fill out a crib or financial application you may do so at your maternity closet appointment.  Call the 24 hour care line to schedule an appointment (612) 803-2225.

     ECL offers limited financial assistance, as a last resort, to help cover childcare expenses as you return to work or for respite care.  ECL also offers limited assistance with formula, gas, medical co-pays, etc.   Fill out an application at the maternity closet or call the care line to request an application (612) 803-2225.

     Through our companion program, ECL offers long term support to women who are interested in planning and pursuing short and long term goals.  Companions are trained in community resources and are available to offer their support and feedback.  Sometimes it is nice to have someone to talk to or bounce ideas off of.  A companion is someone that doesn’t have an emotional history, personal motivations or expectations in your life.  If you are in need of many resources, or are in crisis, a companion becomes a point person for referrals and support. A companion can be requested at any time through the care line (612) 803-2225, or at the maternity closet.

     ECL offers miscarriage support through its Angel Wings program.  If you are experiencing a miscarriage and need support or referrals we are here to help.  If you have had a miscarriage in the past and have unresolved issues, or are pregnant again and having mixed feelings or uncertainties, we are here to help.  Angel Wings volunteers share the experience of miscarriage and understand. 

     ECL is in need of new or gently used baby clothing and items newborn to 2T.  We also accept swings, highchairs, pack and plays, crib mattresses, etc., that are in good condition and working order.  ECL accepts car seats that are 6 years old or newer.  Donations may be left at the parish office (around the back of the church) or call the care line (612) 803-2225 if you have many donations or larger items. Please include your name and address on the donation if you would like a donation receipt mailed to you.

     Volunteering for Epiphany Caring For Life is fun and very rewarding.  Our clients are great and a real joy to work with.  Volunteer opportunities can be groomed to your lifestyle and level of commitment.  Currently ECL is in need of companion/befrienders, phone volunteers, closet helpers, donation sorters, haulers, and general support.  Whether you want to meet new friends or ‘pay it back’, ECL is a great volunteer organization.  Call (612) 803-2225 for more information or if you have questions.
