Epiphany Caring for Life


We are a not-for-profit organization operating out of Epiphany Catholic Church since 1997 offering a variety of short and long term pregnancy support

ECL has been providing services to pregnant women and women with young children in Anoka County since January, 1997. Our mission is to support, empower, and assist women in carrying their pregnancies to term and promoting healthy families. We continue to provide four main programs to facilitate these goals; the 24 hour care line, baby closet, pack n play and car seat program, companion program, and referrals to other local services.


 ECL accepts donations of new or gently used baby clothing (infant to 2t) and new or gently used baby equipment (including high chairs, bouncy seats, and exersaucers).Donations can be left at the Epiphany Catholic Church parish office around the back of the church during regular office hours.


Volunteering for ECL is fun and rewarding. The commitment can be adjusted to fit into your schedule from 1-3 hours a week to a few hours a month. Opportunities include:

  • Baby Closet Helper-meet with clients in the baby closet and help them pick out the items they need to best care for their baby.
  • Phone Companion-get matched up with one of our clients and call to check in on them once a week and be a friend they can talk with.
  • Donations Sorter-Sort the donations of baby clothes into sizes, gender, and season.
