Pregnancy Help Center of Concho Valley, Inc.
July 19, 2011

In a time where pro-life and pro-choice affiliates are treating each other as mortal enemies, this organization shines through with love and compassion.

PHC is a local alternative to Planned Parenthood. Much like the government sponsored organization, PHC focuses on women's health issues and primarily deals with unplanned pregnancies. There is no judgment or shunning of the person experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. Instead, there's a friend waiting with a hug. Friendly counseling and professional staff members exude the love of Christ in all they do.
For the women who choose to carry their child but can't provide for him/her, the PHC offers clothing and light furniture as is available. For the women who choose to carry but not keep their child, they offer contact with adoption agencies and act as a medium in a potentially scary process.
These women not only love Christ, they truly love the babies and the women who carry them.

The Great!

In doing the work I have done around the center, I've seen clients come in and watched their fear soothe and dissipate. Apprehension is often a factor, but when received with love, it's easy to be soothed. The clients are often scared, so a nurturing and friendly hand is always offered.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

buy them a great big sign for the front of the building. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. It's amazing how a little thing like love or compassion can give your business everything it needs. This organization is not lacking.
