Who we serve
PACN exists to bring these women and their families hope by providing material, spiritual and emotional support, in addition to education about parenting, healthy relationships and proper care during and after pregnancy.
A woman in a crisis pregnancy is much more confident about carrying a pregnancy to term when she has support and knows she has a place to turn for reliable, medically accurate information in a compassionate, Christ-centered environment. PACN provides support from the moment her pregnancy test is positive and through the baby’s first year.
PACN services are free and confidential
Educational classes and support groups are open to the community and are offered several times each year. Classes include Childbirth & Newborn Care and Healthy Relationship Skills for Couples. Confidential Abortion Recovery & Education (CARE) program helps participants identify and confront post-abortion symptoms in a healing, compassionate environment.
Vouch for Success is a self-paced educational program where clients can earn credits to redeem for new baby clothes, baby furniture and other items like strollers, high chairs and cribs. For clients participating in this program, material assistance is available through the child’s first year.
By the numbers
PACN in the community
Community involvement is a critical element of PACN’s outreach efforts. Churches, businesses and individuals participate in our Change for Life program by filling up eight-ounce baby bottles with loose change, cash and checks. In addition, PACN hosts a large banquet each spring and Aim for Life, a clay sporting event, is held every fall. PACN marks Sanctity of Human Life in January each year by sending speakers out to churches and other groups to educate about the importance of respecting human life.
PACN also supports local colleges and universities that offer a Masters-level Counseling program through our counselor-in-training program. Students working toward a Masters in Counseling can earn credit by meeting with PACN clients who desire regular support and encouragement through one-on-one counseling. These counselors address issues like abuse, addiction, anger management and anxiety to help individuals and couples strengthen relationships and develop healthy life skills.
PACN can also refer clients to free or low-cost licensed professional counselors (LPC) and licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT).
