United for Life Foundation

Let’s support ministries that support life.

The United for Life Foundation provides critical administrative, fundraising and communication services to ministries that support human life. With your help, we can compound their positive impact.

Join us August 4th – 8th at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama, for the Embracing the Father Conference.

No ministry should be an island.

It’s easy for ministries to get so busy helping others that they forget it’s okay to ask for help too.

Without help, ministry leaders burn out and the impact of the ministry suffers.

It’s why we exist – to foster community, growth, infrastructure health and financial stability to these ministries — so they can focus on vital services instead of office tasks.

Years of working with Ministries

Help support individuals and families in crisis.

The Foundation’s ministry partners sacrificially support individuals and families in crisis situations by providing education and healing resources.

The Foundation stands in support of these noble efforts, and assists them through networking partnerships, fundraising campaigns, and resource sharing.

Ministries we serve.

New Beginnings International Ministries

Since 2009, New Beginnings International Ministries has been defending the innocent, needy ones and vulnerable in the eastern region of Uganda and refugee camps of the north. It’s estimated that over 20% of maternal deaths are caused by complications from abortions. The ministry shares the love of God and teaches young women that abortion ends a valuable human life.

Joyful Hope Ministries

Patrick and Joy Campbell lead a highly successful spiritual SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) Team where they teach the faithful how to deal with and immobilize spiritual attacks from the enemy. Healing and reconciliation occur on regular basis when the Campbells gather to teach, pray with and spiritually empower those who are searching for individual and family healing.

Embracing Dementia

Ellen Marie Edmonds, author of Embracing Dementia: A Call to Love, became her husband’s caregiver when he was diagnosed with vascular dementia. At the same time, she cared for her first grandchild. In her book, she shares her faith-filled journey, offering a practical guide for those caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other dementia diseases
