Horizon pregnancy clinic is full of love and support! I am new to my city so when I looked up this clinic I had no idea what to expect. I knew I was pregnant but I was scared because I did not have insurance to cover pregnancy and my husband and I had been talking about one of us taking on a second job just to make ends meet. Horizon not only gave me my first ultrasound for free but they helped me figure out what to do for insurance, provided me with prenatal vitamins and gave me doctors info near me and let me know what types of insurance they take as well and the best part of all is they supported and encouraged me! They also informed me of their prenatal and parenting classes so I am now attending those and you earn points as you take them and can shop in this "store" that they have with the points you earn. They are even offering to give me a baby shower!!!! All with no questions asked! Just to love and support! I have not met anyone who is does not go the extra mile for you there. Not being from around this area it truly means a lot to me to have horizon pregnancy clinic to come to and feel welcomed and loved in this scary time of my life. They help me to see pregnancy as the blessing it is! Thank you Horizon pregnancy clinic! You guys are doing an amazing job and I am so thankful for all of your hard work!

Horizon Pregnancy Center is a very caring and responsive
support and action center. They have great volunteers
who support the nursing staff as they prepare women who wish to
get a pregnancy test and an ultra sound. They counsel and train
women and men to be great parents through in-house classes.

We are open 5 days a week and have day time and evening hours
and by appointment on Saturday. They also have a traveling
ultra sound van with a nurse and volunteer and driver available
to three cities in the Orange Co and long Beach areas, 4 days a week.

All the people that work or volunteer seem to have the same goal....help the mom and save the baby. They make you feel welcome and you are one of the family. When mom's come in they are a little anxious but we make them comfortable. When they see their unborn baby on the sonogram screen they are in awe. This definitely helps them decide to not have an abortion. Most of all they feel loved and cared for. They help prepare the new mom to be with pre-natal/parenting classes; life skill classes; reality check; child birth classes. Any mom who has an unplanned pregnancy should call Horizon Pregnancy Clinic. It's Free.

Horizon Pregnancy Clinic has been one of the highlights of my life since 2012 when I had the privilege of meeting the Director and the Chairman of the Board at the Annual Westminster Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast. At the time, I’d been searching to volunteer at a pregnancy clinic so the timing was more than perfect.

I soon attended HPC’s very thorough and well-presented Volunteer Training Program presented by two RN’s and then began working as a volunteer at the front desk and as a Client Advocate. It has been such a privilege to work with the Staff and Volunteers at HPC to help women in crisis pregnancy situations.

I now serve weekly as a Client Advocate on our Mobile Clinic, a beautiful Mercedes van that houses a full Ultrasound machine. The Mobile goes out three times a week to reach women that may not find our brick-and-mortar location in Huntington Beach. This outreach has allowed us to help women who desperately need, and often truly want, to change the course of their lives as well. On the Mobile, we offer all the same free services that are offered at our Clinic.

My greatest joy comes after walking a client through their options (and the after effects of each), which include parenting, adoption and (though we do not offer abortion at our Clinic), abortion. However, nothing surpasses the thrill of seeing a woman choose life for her baby after seeing the baby’s heartbeat during an ultrasound. At the first sight of her baby’s heartbeat, one girl who was contemplating abortion exclaimed, “That’s my baby!” Whatever they may choose, we walk them through very informative literature and pray with them before they leave. At that time, we also provide free pre-natal vitamins and give those who choose life a baby gift. Through this short one-hour process, we often see women go from tears to smiles and from stress to peace.

During the past five years as a Volunteer and a Board Member, I have found the Staff and Volunteers at HPC to be people who truly love life, love people and simply want to serve women in their time of deepest need. Without any hesitation or reservation, I will say that it has been a true honor to be a part of this outstanding organization.

And truly, nothing has impacted me more than the young moms that come back to thank us with babies in their arms and smiles on their faces! Their joy and their stories are amazing... Many of them testify that the child’s father, who possibly at one time wanted the child aborted, is now absolutely in love with his child as well!

Our services are multiple... We do not leave young moms to fend for themselves once they choose life. On the contrary, besides offering many referrals for medical care, etc., we provide free Earn While You Learn Classes at HPC where each mom (and dad) can attend a one-on-one class, receiving personal counseling and earning points. With their points they can immediately go into our baby store and purchase diapers, baby clothes and many needed supplies. And to much of their surprise, they get to do this at no cost to them every week!

Also, knowing the pain abortion has caused so many women, we offer an Abortion Recovery Bible study that has literally healed and transformed women’s (and men’s) lives! Though not required to do so, many who attend this class (along with several of our young moms) frequently decide they want to be a part of what we do at Horizon and they become active Volunteers as well.

And last but definitely not least, we provide an extremely educational and informative Sexual Integrity Program that is active throughout Orange County, going to shelters, schools, churches and youth organizations. Students have commented that this program has changed the course of their lives, and many (some who are sexually active, and some who are not yet) have committed to now stay sexually pure until marriage.

If you are looking for a place to volunteer in Orange County, this is a wonderful place to serve. My time with Horizon has made me more passionate about what we do...not to mention, my life as been enriched through all the wonderful people I get to work with and the beautiful young women in crisis I get to help.

If you are in crisis with an unplanned pregnancy and are looking for free, confidential, non-judgmental counseling that explains all your options, I highly recommend this kind, informative and loving organization.

Hope to see you there!

The longer I know this fabulous group of staff and volunteers, the more I want to serve with them! I have never been involved in an organization with such a pure and selfless desire to serve people in their time of need. HPC endeavors to save lives (babies and moms), and to support and educate them throughout their pregnancy and in their parenting. No words can explain the joy I see on young moms’ faces as they express sincere gratitude for all Horizon did for them and their babies!

Horizon is amazing. I have never worked with a nicer group of people! They really care about their clients and provide ongoing support through classes and counseling . Many clients become involved themselves and attend events that promote the clinic. Whether a volunteer or a client, everyone is blessed to be a part of Horizon!

Horizon Pregnancy Clinic offers pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and prenatal classes to clients at no cost. Clients are able to receive information regarding all of their options as they face an unplanned pregnancy. Our medical clients receive quality medical care as well as genuine concern and compassion as we discuss their personal situation and options for their pregnancy. They also find support and hope as we give referrals for various resources. Our Earn While You Learn clients experience weekly personal support through a series of classes on pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. I love being a volunteer at HPC because we are making a difference in the lives of many women, children, and families!

I became a volunteer at HPC 2 1/2 yrs ago and I am so proud to be associated with this clinic. It has helped so many women( and men!) in times of crisis. In helping these women, we are positively affecting them and their families. I look forward to my time I work at the clinic as it feels so good to help those who are in need of support in a crisis and to give back to the community.

HPC gently supports, in a non-judgmental way, all women (and men) at a difficult time in their lives. The wide range of services from pregnancy confirmation and early ultrasound through prenatal and parenting classes are all lovingly provided by compassionate staff and volunteers and highly trained staff. Counseling and referrals on resources available along with opportunities to earn "shopping credits" in their "store," all add to the range of services. I was loved on every step of the way helping me adjust to my new role of parent and knowing I have the tools to do the job well.

What a vital asset to this city of Huntington Beach. The staff and other volunteers have been some of the most wonderful and dedicated people I have had the pleasure to work with. We all share a realistic sense of importance and need for a service like this in any community. The people that come to us are facing a life altering decision that can bring joy or cause pain in their lives. This service comes with the skill and expertise of caring professionals who want to show love and understanding to our clients. We provide information to each client necessary to make informed decisions.

Gods grace,

I have known and been apart of Horizon now for 7 1/2yrs. This is an organization that really really cares about pregnant un-we'd mothers and their babies.
The organization has just a couple beautiful caring staff, and many incredible volunteers that are very dedicated.
I have seen the organization grow over the years, and the growth is always about being able to help more girls and their children.
You see, I have personally been affected by Horizon because my daughter went through the program and we have a beautiful 7yr old granddaughter because of Horizon.

HPC is an awesome organization that helps our community in many different ways. I was blessed to be apart of their Reality Check program. Its a sexual integrity program that teaches students about their value and encourages them to make wise decisions. I love this part of HPC because it starts at the root of the problem, teaching young people of their worth so they don't make choices that will have them coming to HPC or another pregnancy clinic in a crisis situation.

Horizon Pregnancy Clinic came to our church with a Baby Bottle Campaign to benefit their work to save babies. I became interested in volunteering after my husband and I went to the facility for a tour. I became a volunteer three years ago. I get a blessing working with women who are in need of the "free" services offered by the clinic. Lives have been changed in many ways when clients become a part of our services. This is a most needed opportunity for women in our community and the surrounding areas. It is a God-send in a time of need.

Ten years ago, the director came to the church office to see if we would like to know more about saving lives of unborn children. My wife and I ended up as partnering financially, and as volunteers on the prayer team. We have been both amazed and thrilled to see the clinic grow, move to a bigger facility and now adding a mobile ultrasound unit. This has been an amazing work of the Lord God as he works through the many diverse volunteers.

Horizon Pregnancy Clinic has helped students and Alumni from our school. They have given insight and wisdom in their chapel presentations, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who could benefit from their services.
