Over 40 years ago, in Austin, Texas, a law was passed that went against life. We are in a new day now, where laws are standing up for life. Abortion clinics are on the decline, while pregnancy centers are on the rise. People are speaking out for lives that cannot speak for themselves. There is a generation that sees the truth. Our generation has fought hard and prayed harder, and now a new generation is ready to carry on the legacy.

The Trotter House 2019 Love and Roses benefit dinner is an annual banquet event to share the vision of Trotter House as well as experience of time with dynamic speakers.

Our 11th annual fall "Love & Roses" benefit dinner

“And who knows but that you have come to your royal
position for such a time as this?”

Lori DeVillez
Trotter House Executive Director

Equipped with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and social work from the University of Southern Indiana and a background in social work, public administration and missions, Lori DeVillez began her career path of serving pregnancy centers in 1992.  From 1997-2005 Lori traveled the nation as President of the Heidi Group, helping centers develop strategic ministry and providing training in all aspects of pregnancy resource center management.

Lori developed a heart for the 100,000 plus university students in the city of Austin, Texas shortly after she moved there in 1997.  Her vision for a pregnancy center adjacent to the UT campus was realized in January of 2005 when the Austin Pregnancy Resource Center became a reality.  In March of that year Lori became the Executive Director of the facility and has planted 12 more pregnancy resource centers in the Austin area to date.

Lori is recognized and respected for creating a culture of life through her work and she continues to help create " A New Day" as a certified  Ziglar Legacy trainer and published author.

Saurabh Sharma
Keynote Speaker

Saurabh Sharma serves as the Chairman of Young Conservatives of Texas, a non-partisan conservative youth organization that has been fighting for conservative values for almost 40 years in the Lone Star State and publishes the most respected conservative ratings of the Texas Legislature. 
Born in Bangalore, India, Saurabh moved to the United States when he was 2 months old and has lived in 11 different locations across the country and the world. Upon moving to Texas during high school, Saurabh immediately fell in love with the Lone Star State and its people, inspiring him to work every day to defend the ideas that make Texas a beacon for liberty and prosperity. He began his journey in politics when he served as a legislative aide to one of Texas’ most conservative legislators, State Senator Van Taylor, during the 85th Texas Legislature and subsequent special session. Saurabh is also a journalist, having served as a Capitol Correspondent for Texas Scorecard in 2018 and a National Journalism Center fellow at The Daily Caller in 2019. Saurabh has stood his ground and as a result, was invited to attend the signing of Executive Order by President Trump in Washington D.C. for free speech for conservatives on college campuses.
