Background Statement
A Women’s Pregnancy Center was incorporated in 1985 and has served the community in various locations around Tallahassee for the past 27 years. Our first client was seen in February of 1986. In 2007, a failing pregnancy center located in Madison, Florida came under our umbrella and became AWPC of Madison.
Similarly in 2008, AWPC responded to the invitation of interested people in Marianna, Florida and opened AWPC of Marianna. Using AWPC’s successful paradigm, both branches have thrived and, as of January of 2010, operate independently under separate boards and administration. They continue to serve their communities with excellence, providing counseling and material assistance to women and men in need.

In 2005, after purchasing and remodeling a building near the FSU campus, AWPC moved to its fifth and current location. This location was strategically selected to accommodate the needs of students from three college campuses as well as it’s accessibility to disadvantaged clients via the bus system. The demand for such care is evidenced by the steady growth in new clients.

Board Chair Statement

From a personal side, I was drawn to this organization because of the passion the Lord placed on my heart for human life.  This ministry advocates for life and it aligns with my purpose in life, i.e., to lovingly confront all activities that dishonor human life.  These include, but are not limited to abortion, abuse, suicide, murder, and euthanasia.

It is my vision to see human life restored to its true value according to God’s Word.  I have witnessed the hurt experienced by families at the loss of loved ones.  It is my belief that being part of A Women’s Pregnancy Center will afford me opportunities to inform adults and young people on the importance of promoting and protecting human life at every stage and in any condition.  There are many places in God’s Word where we are instructed to care for the widow, the fatherless, the stranger, the helpless, and the unwanted.  This is the calling on my life, and this is what I desire to do.

CEO Statement/Executive Director Statement
A Women’s Pregnancy Center is strategically located near three college campuses and easily accessible to many disadvantaged residents.  Studies show us that 10% of college aged women will become pregnant each year, which translates locally into 3,600 women.  Due to educational or financial reasons, many of these women feel they have no option except to abort.  We educate them on all three of their options, and give them resources to allow them to consider carrying their babies to term and raise them as their own or place them with a loving, adoptive family.  
 
Many of our clients feel alone and scared, often pressured or worse,  abandoned, by their partners, left to make what is often a life and death decision.  We are able to provide loving, compassionate care through peer counseling and resource assistance.  Many have made commitments to sexual abstinence until marriage.  Children have been clothed, fed and nurtured through our material resource room.  Mothers have learned good parenting and discipline skills through our programs. 
 
Year after year, we continue to see lives impacted in a powerful way.  Thank you for considering partnering with us, as we continue to educate and equip our young women and men with the skills and knowledge they need to make informed and confident decisions about their pregnancies.
Description

Women who have had abortions may face emotional numbness, guilt, depression and a variety of other psychological systems. Our society has left these women few safe places to discuss their post-abortion grief, and the realities of the impact it has had on their lives.

A Women’s Pregnancy Center seeks to offer hope and healing to individuals affected by abortion. Not only does a Women’s Pregnancy Center provide a safe place for women to discuss the realities and pain of abortion, but also offers guidance about forgiveness and healing. Clients may either receive peer counseling on a one-to-one basis, or they may attend our more extensive post abortive counseling education program, Forgiven and Set Free. This program, encompassing 12 weeks of study, is facilitated by peer counselors who are also post abortive and understand the struggles these women face.

Program Success Monitored By
AWPC has offered our abortion recovery program to the community for over 12 years. Women who graduate from the program report that they feel like a great weight has been lifted from them. They often report that the guilt and anxiety associated with their past abortion or abortions have abated. In additon, a large percentage of the attendees go on to become crises counselors with the pregnancy center.
Description

A Women’s Pregnancy Center primarily serves our local college student population, and a disadvantaged population from diverse ethnic/racial backgrounds, many with very limited access to health care. Our clients receive free pregnancy tests and counseling. If they chose, they may also receive a limited ultrasound that will show them their baby’s heartbeat, also at no cost to them. In the last four years, AWPC has provided over 1,150 ultrasounds to our clients.

Short Term Success We have beefed up our male volunteer staff from 2 to 12.  The number of fathers of babies we have seen has increased from 16 last year to 154 this year.
