Pregnancy centers are non-profit organizations committed to serving the woman facing an unplanned pregnancy by providing compassion and life-affirming support and services at a very difficult time in her life. These centers, also referred to as Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) or Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs), will help the woman understand her options in a safe, friendly, non-judgmental environment. They will lovingly present alternatives to abortion, raising her child or the option of adoption. They have no financial interest in the woman’s decision, so the woman can expect open, honest, and caring support.
A woman should never feel that abortion is her only option. The volunteers and staff of the centers understand that the choice a woman makes regarding her pregnancy will have a profound effect on her body, her emotional well-being, and countless other aspects of her current and future life. With the assistance of PRC’s women are choosing life and hope every day.
The services provided by local pregnancy centers may include:
Free pregnancy tests
Options counseling, including comprehensive information on adoption and parenting, as well as information on abortion procedures and risks
Bible study classes
Support groups and peer counseling
Material assistance, including diapers, maternity clothes,
strollers, cribs, carseats, and more
Job and housing assistance and referrals
Additional community referrals
We believe that abortion is often the result of a lack of resources, education, and support. Our local centers offer practical, compassionate ways to remove the barriers that cause women to choose abortion and provide the opportunity for every woman to make positive choices for herself and for her unborn children.
