Pam Durdahl has been involved in pro-life work since 1989 when she began volunteering at the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Wells County. She served as a counselor there until 2000 when they began looking for a building to expand their ministry into a residential facility for women. Pam serves there now as executive director of A Friend’s House, a home where women with eating disorders, substance abuse issues, and unplanned pregnancies may live.
Soon after Pam began volunteering at the CPC in Bluffton, she attended her first “Rescue” in Fort Wayne with Northeast Indiana Rescue. Pam began sidewalk counseling in 1989 also, and organized the counselors for 16 years until December of 2004 when A Friend’s House required her attention full time. Pam’s time now is spent overseeing the work at A Friend’s House, but she says that her most important job is being grandmother to 9 grandchildren.
