- About Us
The Pregnancy & Family Care Center supports women and families who are experiencing challenging circumstances related to pregnancy and parenting. The program offers physical, emotional and spiritual support providing for immediate needs while equipping clients and knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful parent.
The Center's Earn While You Learn program provides for the physical need of clients including maternity clothes and baby care items such as clothing, diapers, bottles, formula, baby furniture and car seats. Parents earn points to exchange for these necessities by completing parenting and Bible study lessons which equip them with life skills that will enable them to be confident and capable parents. The Center also offers childbirth and parenting education. The parenting classes are accepted by the Department of Children and Families and are acceptable for court-ordered education.
The Pregnancy and Family Care Center facility provides a comfortable, homey atmosphere for its clients. Small rooms for counseling and watching educational videos offer privacy. Clothing, diapers and other baby needs are stored in a large room for families to browse. There is office space, a kitchen and a space for processing pregnancy tests and storing literature as well as a play space for small children and plenty of seating space for conversation and relaxation.

The staff is supported by a dedicated team of volunteers from a variety of churches who serve four hour shifts as client counselors, educators, receptionists and many other positions.
