LUDINGTON — West Shore Pregnancy Care Center has paid off its building debt, much earlier than its leaders had anticipated. Two years ago this week the non-profit agency moved into its location on Tinkham Avenue just west of Washington Avenue. The building was previously the practice of pediatrician Kenneth Hill and was purchased from Dr. Hill and his wife, Diane.

Last year’s Ludington Lake Jump helped raise $30,000 for the center, but still left some debt. Local businesses and individuals helped offset those costs.

“We are thrilled to pay off our building early,” said Tracey Chapman, executive director. “The Hills have been very gracious and generous to us and it has been a pleasure to work with them.”

Chapman said the center’s original goal was to raise $125,000, $100,000 for the building and $25,000 in renovations.

“We didn’t even spend that much in renovations because of the generosity of local businesses that either went all in or donated their labor and we just paid for the supplies,” she said.
