Our Story

Over the past 27 years, the Pregnancy Resource Center of Metro Richmond has been a loving refuge and a valuable resource for over 29,000 women who were unprepared for pregnancy and in need of life-affirming choices; choices that uphold the sanctity of human life, choices that offer hope and a future abundant in blessings, choices that affirm the lives of both mom and her preborn baby.

All of the services we offer are free to all of our clients. Being able to provide services at no cost to the teens and women that come to us for help oftentimes makes the difference between the mothers choosing to carry to term or terminate their pregnancy.

The PRC serves in the following areas:

    • Prevention:

      As a part of our STI testing, we provide counseling and education about living a life of sexual integrity. The PRC also offers training for those interested in taking the message of abstinence into area community groups.

    • Intervention:

      With peer-counseling and medical services, we offer alternatives to abortion, which affirm the lives of women and their preborn babies. In 2008, we facilitated 2,218 visits, conducted 373 ultrasounds and 834 pregnancy tests, and received 3,537 phone calls from teens, women, and men looking for help.

    • Recovery:

We desire to help those seeking forgiveness and healing following an abortion. In 2008, we were blessed to hold 20 Bible study visits with women struggling with unresovled grief after an abortion. God has used this message of forgiveness to transform and heal the hearts of many hurting women.
