About PRC

Hope, Health and Healing

Simple acts of love and compassion, combined with truth, are creating amazing results for our vulnerable neighbors…now and for eternity. The most volatile issues of our time—sexuality, abortion, and post-abortion consequences—affect everyone in our community.

PRC’s calling is to advance the cause of Life, in Christ’s love, to bless our entire community. For more than 28 years, Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRC) has worked to save and protect the most vulnerable lives in Greater Portland.

We work against the tide of sexual irresponsibility, epidemic STDs, unplanned pregnancies, abortions, broken relationships, and broken lives.  We help to move people off the path of destruction and onto the path of Life. It has been our privilege to:

  • Serve more than 160,000 women through our five Centers with complimentary services, including pregnancy tests, peer counseling and ultrasound.
  • See tens of thousands of babies born whose mothers might otherwise not have carried to term.
  • Challenge 200,000+ students to think seriously about their health and relationships through Abstinence until Marriage training.
  • Help thousands find restoration and new life based on the ministry of Jesus Christ.

Each year, tens of thousands more in our community need to know the truth and be supported as they choose the best for their lives.  Everyone can make a positive difference through love, joining in compassionate service that transcends politics.
