There are some great things happening at the Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) of Salt Lake City! The 2014 Banquet for Life fundraising gala was held last week to help the Center continue its wonderful work for women, men and families in Utah. Guest speaker, Pam Tebow, shared her powerful message about her decision to carry her son, Tim Tebow, to full-term even with the risk it presented to her life. Her message empowered others to see the beauty of life and the alternative options available other than abortion.
The work that (PRC) has been doing over the past year is impressive! They have more than doubled the number of ultrasound appointments over the previous year and by the end of 2014 will have provided ultrasounds for more than 300 women in Utah. In addition to confirming pregnancy, the PRC offers much more. They give their clients many options and services. They have a program called Life Steps Parenting in which classes are held to support those parents that have chosen to parent their child, but feel unprepared.
PRC also offers support and help for those women and men that choose the option of adoption. They offer adoption agency choices and references in addition to counseling for parents who want to explore adoption. Act of Love Adoptions is proud to be a partner with PRC to help women and men with the option of adoption.
In addition, the PRC offers post abortive support and recovery groups. This helps men and women find healing and forgiveness. The facilitators of this group have been impacted by abortion themselves and can help women and men through the recovery process and find hope.
The Center has also helped teen pregnancy rates to decline in Utah. One way they are helping is through the Reality Check Program. This program is taught in a few school districts in Utah, helping teens to overcome pressure to be sexually active outside of marriage.
The Pregnancy Resource Center offers all this in addition to pregnancy tests, peer counseling, 24 hour hot line to help men and women discuss their options, college and community outreach and community and church referrals. This is such a wonderful resource designed to save the lives of the unborn, which do not have a voice themselves.
The vision of PRC is to make a positive impact in the lives of youth, women and families in Salt Lake City and surrounding areas by educating and caring for our community in areas of sexual health, pregnancy, abortion recovery, successful parenting and adoption.
The staff at Pregnancy Resource Center is kind, loving, available and willing to help. They have trained nurses and counselors on-site at all times. They are sure to follow-up with those who come into their offices for help. As they grow and expand, their hope is to expand their client services to include counseling for men, Father mentoring, medical services to include pregnancy blood testing and STI/STD testing. Their first and foremost goal is to save lives.
