Mission: Evprc is a pro-life pregnancy resource center

Programs: The elsinore valley pregnancy resource center sees approximately 8 women/girls per week in face-to-face counseling on pregnancy-related issues. The women are given a self administered pregnancy test and then they discuss with our volunteer counselors the results of the test and any issues concerning sexual activity. The center is open approx. 27 hours per week monday through saturday. When the center is closed, telephone calls are routed through a live answering service, which forwards the caller's contact information to us. We receive about 25 calls per week and some result in counseling over the telephone. The center provides information on area doctors for prenatal care. The center does not refer anyone to an abortion clinic. We also distribute donated baby clothes, diapers and formula, assisting approx 60 families per month with these basic supplies. We also maintain a list of area maternity homes and help the women find a place to stay when needed. Our volunteer counselors receive extensive training. We hope to see more clients in the coming years as our presence becomes better known. We have an active board of directors which plans for future activities.

the center has one main educational activity for the broader community, namely our annual walk for life, which also serves as a fundraising event. The walk for life is a festive, family-oriented event which includes public speakers, music, meet and greet opportunities, and the walk itself. We hope to be invited back into the local high schools by the health science teachers to provide abstinence counseling in their classes.

women or girls who are pregnant are given the chance to enroll in our bridges to parenthood program. This program is run presently on every wednesday evening of the month. We have found that some of our clients do not have basic everyday life skills. Bridges offers them the opportunity to learn how to take care of themselves and their new babies. The program distributes good quality baby items donated to us from the community. The women enrolled in the program need to be active in learning mothering skills. Those who demonstrate a commitment to becoming better educated can receive the baby items free of charge. We do not simply hand these items out without a corresponding effort on the part of the expectant mothers. Another important benefit of the bridges program is the friendship the women experience among themselves. Many of the women or girls in the program are single. Pregnancy can be a frightening and uncertain event for a young single girl. We have successfully expanded the bridges program from monthly to weekly.

By volunteering at EVPRC, I have the opportunity to reach out to the members of
our community and help them in ways that others can't. From giving pregnancy test
for those who might be expecting to helping find shelter for moms whose child is
on the way, volunteering here means making a difference.

About 2 years when I started here I was a young teen mom and this place helped me tremendously. The entire staff is so welcoming and loving. Ms. Barbra immediately took me in as her own and educated me quickly on what they offered.
I started attending the Bridges to parenthood classes every Wednesday and again quickly felt welcomed by all the girls who attended. The classes taught me so much about how to prepare for my little one and also taught me tools to apply to my own life such as resume building, communication skills, etc. Their donations also helped me so much while we prepared to welcome our daughter into the world. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to feel like they’re apart of something.

Thank you for everything, Elsinore Pregnancy Resource Center!

Love,

Noelani and Mila

I first came to the center back when I was homeless and expecting my first child. I love the support that the center gives out with the weekly classes. I have been coming here off and on for a little over 5 years and just love coming.

I love this place! It is very supportive, the counselors are amazing!!! It becomes part of you! I've been going to this place since I moved to Lake Elsinore in 2013 and everyone was so welcoming. Mrs. Barbara the direct, she has a heart of gold! there are no words to describe how amazing she is! If you need a place to vent and meet people that are in the similar situation you are in, this is the place to go!!
