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.

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.

This organization helps women who want to keep their babies by giving advice, counseling and resources. I am privileged to help start this non profit over five years ago.

The Heart of Texas PRC is so near to my heart. For a few years I collected donations around my neighborhood for the center and it was last year (March 2017) where God stirred my heart to being on the front line of fighting for life. I thought serving as a volunteer client care advocate I would change and touch lives but I had no idea how my life would be changed and touched by the precious clients and women I get to serve and work alongside. I absolutely love what this center is doing... providing services, materials, support, encouragement, and prayer for not just women and babies but entire families. No strings attached love and support is hard to come by these days and I admire how the Heart of Texas PRC serves our city.

I love volunteering with HTPRC because I GET to rally the mom's in my community to donate gently used baby items and when there is a specific need -it's always met with "where can I drop off"...or "can you pickup this evening"? I love the hearts of the moms that love the moms at the HTPRC.

The resource center uses the donations to meet the mom's immediate needs and discerns maybe even a greater need. Sometimes these needs are in the middle of a storm, or they just need a little help getting through a certain season.

All programs are Christ-Centered as He is the whole reason the center came into existence. Programs such as "Earn while you learn" where mom's receive Mommy Dollars to buy bigger items; or chic chat - where the moms' find community with each other. Free baby boutique items for the mom's to shop monthly for much needed items.

The Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center is indeed the Heartbeat of East Austin and Dripping Springs for Mom's who are in need of a resource and receive so much more!

Heart of Texas is a great nonprofit that I love volunteering at every other week for chic chat. The women who work here love these women and children who go to Heart of Texas. Their heart to genuinely help and serve the people who come in is beautiful to see and be apart of I don't have the words to describe their strong and faithful hearts that serve for the glory of God.

The staff give a great service however it is not necessary for them to lock the front door at all times they should concentrate more on their job duties than be opening the front door at all times if they do feel unsafe in their job site cameras should be place for their own safety

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 knew when this organization started I wanted my Company to apart of the promotional support they would need to be noticed. I am amazed everyday at the level of dedication and commitment they have saving the lives of so many unborn children not to mention spreading the gospel. Witnessing to parents & supporting their needs during their pregnancy term and there after. Just a wonder organization and administrators.
