Founded in 1987 as the Crisis Pregnancy Center, a small group of people from Springfield had a dream of a facility that provided abortion alternatives in the community.
As the ministry grew, locations changed to provide for the many women being seen for pregnancy services, to include abortion and adoption education. In 2003, a limited medical program had begun, providing limited ultrasound and early pregnancy services for abortion vulnerable women. The name was then changed to Pregnancy Resource Center of Clark County. All services have remained free of charge because of the generosity of the ministry’s donors, to include: individuals, churches, businesses, schools, local and private foundations and grantors.
In 2009, the PRC went fully medical, hiring a nurse manager trained to provide ultrasound services and under the medical directorship of a local OB/GYN physician.
In 2014 the name was changed to the Pregnancy Resource Clinic of Clark County (PRC), to better reflect the full medical services being offered. A new building was purchased in 2016, on the south side of Springfield, allowing more visibility and better access for inner city patients.
The Pregnancy Resource Clinic is a Christ-centered organization that provides trust care, support, and resources to all people regarding pregnancy and sexual health.
We envision a community that values life, where women and men are equipped to embrace life for their children and embraced by the Church to have abundant life for their families (John 10:10).
