PURPOSE

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.

PROGRAM DETAILS

The Pregnancy & Family Care Center provides pregnancy testing and counsels women based on the outcome. Those who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy and are considering abortion are referred to local pro-life physicians who provide ultrasounds, usually within 48 hours to help mothers see the miracle of the life entrusted to their care and to consider the consequences of their decision. Those who choose life are supported as they live out their decision, including adoption planning or childbirth and parenting education. Those who do not are offered support through port-abortive counseling. While we are not an adoption agency, each year we are able to pair birth moms who want to make the loving choice of adoption for their babies with local families who want to adopt.

Facilities

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 Pregnancy & Family Care Center is open Monday - Friday 9:00 am to 5 pm and Friday although you can reach our after hours help line at 352-787-8839.

History

The Pregnancy & Family Care Center was founded in 1987 to aide women in crisis pregnancies by offering alternatives to abortion including medical referrals with ultrasound, adoption counseling and placement for housing during pregnancy. Through the years additional programs have been added to provide support to families with children. On average each month, the center serves 100 clients and provides 30 pregnancy tests. During any given year, 19-30 abortion-minded women choose life for their babies as a direct result of these efforts.
