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 & 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.
