Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I think I might be pregnant and need to talk to someone. Do I need an appointment?

Q. What kind of help do you offer?
A. We offer a variety of free and confidential services, including pregnancy testing, peer counseling, limited ultrasound, and community referrals.

A. No. We are pro-life and do not refer for abortion.
Q. Who provides counseling at the Pregnancy Help Center?
A. Our staff and client advocates are here to listen to your concerns and help you make informed decisions about your particular situation. Each client advocate and staff person has received extensive training and preparation to help you through this situation.
Q. Will my family/boyfriend be notified about the results of my appointment?
A. No. Your visit is completely confidential. No information of your visit is released without your written consent. All records are kept confidential to the extent allowed by law. The PHC is required by law to report cases of sexual/physical abuse of a minor.

A. We will still receive you unconditionally, regardless of your decision. Post-Abortion Recovery is offered through the PHC for anyone associated with an abortion experience.

A. The PHC can give you a list of licensed adoption agencies to look over. Agencies offer different services, so you would have to call the ones that interest you to see if you are compatible.
