After many years of running her own small business,working in the corporate world, guiding venture capital startups, and supporting nonprofit programs, Jenny Condon, in 2011, was able to make a personal dream come true when she co-founded and became the Executive Director of one of Iowa’s most successful prolife organizations – InnerVisions HealthCare. InnerVisions, an unplanned pregnancy and STD medical clinic, began with a modest budget, two employees and 6 volunteers. The mission was simple; invite women to the clinic to confirm their pregnancy, let them see the child in their womb by offering them a free ultrasound, and then educate them about all the options available; empowering them to make the best and most informed decision. Jenny believed that far more often than not, when given the truth, women would choose life and embrace their motherhood and womanhood. Thanks to the help of many wonderful partners, this loving and compassionate ministry grew beyond anything she could have imagined.
Seven years and more than 800 “saved babies” later, the clinic employs 10 professionals from various fields, has 4 volunteer doctors, 6 nurse volunteers and more than 20 office volunteers. It’s by listening to the needs of the patients, and then employing the right people and by constantly improving the programs and outreach efforts that the clinic has grown in locations and to a nearly $1,000,000 budget.
While a good manager who understands operations and the nonprofit corporate structure can create a well run organization, it’s the collaborative effort of a team that believes and shares a passion for empowering the women and men themselves to save their babies that will ultimately succeed against the abortion conglomerates.
Since InnerVisions opened its doors, the culture in Iowa has dramatically changed for the better and we’re beginning to realize the benefits of embracing a culture of life.
Jenny looks forward to sharing her strategies, stories, and passion for the pregnancy clinic movement and explaining how she was able to grow the mission consistently from year to year until her recent retirement.
According to Jenny, “life is truly good” when you are able to share proven techniques and practices to help other organizations succeed as they fight the good fight.
Best of all, watching a spiritual healing begin and then develop in a woman’s heart as she begins to see that her pregnancy is a gift from heaven…and then witnessing her fears and anxieties turn into excitement and hope is a blessing that is simply “out of this world”.
