Mission: Vision: Pregnancy Resource Center of the Valleys will be the “Go To” center in the region for supporting women and families spiritually and emotional in times of pregnancy crisis.
Mission: Pregnancy Resource Center of the Valleys shares the love of Christ with those facing pregnancy decisions and parenting needs in a safe, non-judgmental and encouraging environment.
PRC of the Valleys: “Cultivating Hope One Life at a Time.”
CORE VALUES: CHURCHES/BUSINESSES
The Love of Christ:
We will first bow our knee and pray both for the ministry and each other according to Paul’s prayer in Eph 3: 14-19. Praying, that Christ would dwell in our hearts and that we would be grounded in love, knowing the love of Christ which passes human knowledge.
We will support and encourage each other with compassion.
We know that only those who walk in truth, honor, and respect of each other dwell with God. Therefore we will walk in honesty and speak the truth in love, without backbiting either verbally or in our hearts. Psalm 15:1-3
We will respect and honor one another, dealing honestly and confidentially in all our affairs.
Our Lord calls us to a higher standard. Therefore we will not judge according to appearances but will judge according to righteous judgments. John 7:24
We will seek the truth before coming to conclusions.
We will remind each other of Christ’s words in Luke 10:19 and be a safe, encouraging place, that provides compassion, hope and courage to one another.
We are a safe place working to bring hope and encouragement to one another.
We will strive towards excellence in service by walking out Mark 9:35, “If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.”
We place others before ourselves.
By abiding with these values we are drawing lines in the sand for those who are dealing with unplanned pregnancy and giving them the dignity that Christ did with the woman caught in adultery.

Serving on the board for this organization was very eye-opening for me. The staff are compassionate, resourceful, and eager to serve the clientele. When I volunteered for events and encountered previous clients, I was always pleased to hear them rave about the staff members that they worked with. This ministry is growing in leaps and bounds. It was wonderful to see a location launch in the Corning area this past year. With God's favor and a leadership team full of integrity, I believe wholeheartedly that locations will soon appear in other neighboring communities as well. As a final note, I believe that this ministry's greatest need is for faithful volunteers. The staff is extremely dedicated, but often overburdened. An increase in steady volunteers could lift the impact of this ministry to a whole new level.
I have been volunteering at Prc of the Valleys and have experienced seeiing first hand the appreciation clients show with the help we are able to provide. Clients have stated over and over that they just can't believe how we care about their needs. Helping to promote healthy families with such a rewarding experience!
Professional with expertise in this field
PRC of the Valleys is a valued partner in the work I do. As an Attorney representing children I have come to rely on the services this agency provides to my client's parents. From one on one parenting classes for father's to co-parenting classes for couples, the number of cases where I refer parents has increased to keep up with the increasing need I face for the families I work with. I could not do my job nearly as well without them!
I have been so impressed on what PRC of the Valleys is able to accomplish. Their heart is to see baby's rescued but also to see the mother's/families come to faith and maturity through loving guidance and education. It's a privilege to be a part of this empowering ministry.
