What We Do
PRC exists to share the love of Christ and free services to educate women on their pregnancy options – parenting, adoption, and the types and risks of abortion. Since 1982, we have had over 80,000 client visits-enough to fill Bank of America Stadium. Sharing Christ in word and deed is a key component in this ministry. We share the truth about fetal development and the physical, emotional and spiritual risks associated with abortion.
So far this year 1,579 abortion-minded or abortion-vulnerable women have already come through our doors, both at our 4th Street location and on our Mobile Units. We praise God that in 2014, 1,045 abortion to life decisions were made, that is more than four every day that our doors were open!
H.O.P.E Classes (Help Offered in a Pregnancy Experience) are offered in English and Spanish to adult and teen moms. Classes educate clients on issues surrounding healthy pregnancy and enhance parenting skills needed in their child’s first year of life. Each class incorporates a spiritual devotion and prayer. At the completion of each class, clients receive baby items. At 9-months, they receive a bundle filled with material needs for their baby’s first months at home.
Surrendering the Secret Bible study is a biblically based healing journey for women who have experienced the pain of abortion. This 8-week interactive Bible study helps women find hope through a caring, confidential community.
Father’s Place is a class that disciples, equips, trains, and mentors dads in the responsibilities of fatherhood.
