Mission: Our mission at the Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center (HTPRC) is to save lives in the name of Jesus Christ. We have positive solutions concerning unexpected pregnancies and share God’s grace with those in need. We educate on abstinence/sexuality, and offer compassionate care to each of our clients.

Results: The HTPRC is a young organization, in full operation only since January 2013. To date, we have located in an office building central to our mission and acquired clientele numbering more than 1,000 mothers, many of whom had their babies months ago but who still visit regularly for supplies or just to talk. We set up a boutique and stocked it with baby items. We acquired an ultrasound device and a trained volunteer who can operate it. We recently began our first parenting class. We consolidated and improved client forms and set up a routine for entering information in the database.

Target demographics: women facing unplanned pregnancies

Direct beneficiaries per year: more than 1,000 mothers

Geographic areas served: Austin and Dripping Springs, Texas

Programs: peer advocacy, pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, clothing, diapers, formula and other baby supplies, along with love and support. All goods and services are free of charge.

I have watched in amazement what God has done with His Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center. The lives touched, helped, and saved, by the work of this Center is truly God inspired. Love radiates from these people, and in the lives of thousands of women helped who were in need.

The Heart of Texas PRC is an amazing little center that see's more women in a day then most centers see all week! As a donor, each year I get a wonderful booklet mailed to me with a review of happenings from the past year. I also get a recap at the annual gala and I visit the center once in awhile where I am able to see how very busy they are. I have complete faith that this center is being good stewards of our donation. I am actually quite shocked at how they are able to accomplish so much with so little. But God always does provide for them and that is confirmation to me that I am giving to the right place.

Our church also supports the center and one of our congregation is a client of HTPRC. She allowed HTPRC to video her telling her story and how impactful the women at the center were and ARE to her and her children's lives. It is a beautiful example of how HTPRC is following God's word of being the feet and hands of Christ. I'm honored to get to partner with Heart of Texas!

The Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center is truly a Blessing. As a volunteer I get the opportunity to be not only a witness for Christ but also an advocate for life. The women that we serve are women of various backgrounds, and stories but they all come to HTPRC for one thing, to get the support, resources, encouragement and love that they desire. As a mother myself, I know how challenging life could be but with loving support, the challenges can feel minimal and that is the type of environment that HTPRC provides.

This group of women helping women is incredible. Not only are they compassionate and completely without judgment, but they are efficient, professional and selfless. They spend their days meeting the needs of women-from diapers & clothes to listening and education.

My family and I have been part of this organization for 7 years. It has brought me such joy to be part of this selfless and God-serving organization. The staff at both of the centers care so deeply about each and every woman and family who walks through their doors. I've personally seen women, children and families who had no where else to go, come here and find a safe and loving environment where she feels cared for and guided with wisdom. Real life change happens at Heart of Texas PRC.

My first encounters with Debi Wehmeir were at a small church in Dripping Springs, Texas. With the benefit of mutual friends and social media, I came to learn about the amazing work God had for her with moms, babies and dads.
My biological mother had a choice to make, a long time ago. Instead of abortion, she chose adoption and as a result I have been given the gift of living out the life God had planned for me. I pray for, bless and praise God for the work of Chicon and Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Centers. Every life matters - every life. As a people, we must be judged on how we treat our most vulnerable: the unborn and the frail elderly.

I love the hope and help that Heart of Texas offers to the community, particularly to mom's and babies. I love that the volunteers and staff genuinely care about each of the women who come to them, and it shows by the smiles on the faces of the women as they leave from their appointments with arms full of items such as diapers and wipes and baby clothes. From the Baby Boutique to the parenting classes to the support for women during their pregnancies from the beginning to after birth, this Center is a huge blessing to many women in our community and I am so happy to partner with this organization!

Heart of Texas is an amazing organization where moms are supported emotionally, spiritually, and materialistically (like with diapers, wipes, formula, etc). We offer different kinds of FREE services and help meet their basic needs and empower moms of all ages and backgrounds to fulfill their God-given potential. We receive all moms with open arms and plenty of love!

Last summer after having my daughter the Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center welcomed me with open arms and supplied me with so many things! As a first time mother I wasn’t sure of what all I would need, but Debbie and Carla made sure my daughter and I were taken care of. Such a sweet non profit organization helping so many women and families. They are a TRUE BLESSING.

The Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center is a place where women can come and know that they are going to be helped physically, emotionally and spiritually, if they so desire. They will always be respected and loved unconditionally. We walk by their side during the difficult and joyous times of their lives. So many of our moms come back monthly to receive material items and take life skills and parenting classes. But they also know they are going to be loved by our team...and loved well! I am blessed and humbled to be able to lead this center. I thank God for this sweet blessing.

I volunteered to work with children during the women's weekly support group. I appreciate that the Heart of Texas PRC provides this time for the moms to have a break and to be together. This also gives their kids the opportunity to interact with each other and with the volunteers in a safe and loving environment. As a teacher, I know this is a vital piece of early child development and so important for our community.

As a volunteer for a number of years now, i can attest to the consistent dedication and care extended to mothers facing unplanned pregnancies by the staff of HTPRC, as well as the generosity of the many partner individuals, churches and organizations that give their support to this endeavor.
