Needs Statement

·         We need a couple of female volunteers to join our Monday night team. Monday evenings are our highest concentration of clients, and we want to give them appropriate attention.

·         We need a technically advanced volunteer, particularly in the realm of SEO and internet presence, to help us improve our internet outreach. So many of our potential clients have questions that we could answer on the web, but we need to get them to our site.

·         We need a group of small businesses or business owners to become long-term financial partners with the PHI Center. Our clients receive their services at no charge to them, but they aren't free to provide.

·         We are looking for a stained glass window for the door into our prayer room.

         We need short-term mentors to work with our clients.

Background Statement
In 1974 a group of concerned, compassionate Tallahassee residents started the Pregnancy Help & Information Center (PHI Center) to serve the women and children of the Big Bend. Initially launched as a hand out program to provide diapers and other resources to mothers to be and new mothers, the PHI Center has grown into a multi-faceted service, providing comprehensive education and a vast array of resources to assist pregnant women and families with young children. With education options ranging from prenatal development and discipline for toddlers to personal budgeting and learning how to rent an apartment, our client base ranges from fourteen-year-old girls to fathers in their forties. What was once a volunteer staff of a few is now a paid staff of seven and a volunteer team of over twenty, including retired nurses and trained social workers. We proudly train between one to three college interns each semester, adding an extra layer of service to our community, and building future service leaders.

Areas of Service
Areas Served
Description Mothers and Dads will come to the center and earn Baby Bucks. They will spend it here on items such as diapers, formula, baby food, food items, baby clothes, household items, maturity clothes and certain other necessities that may be available.

Clients will fill out a confidential intake form that gives us their contact information, demographic information, religious information, pregnancy history, abuse & STD information, and primary reason for their visit. Client will receive 1 Baby Buck for the following:

  • Each time they come for a lesson.
  • Each time they are on time.
  • Each time they bring their completed homework from the previous lesson.
  • If they are currently breast feeding.
  • If they have more than one child in diapers

We plan each lesson based on what will benefit the client, where they are in their parenting, which trimester they may be in during their pregnancy, or if there is a particular subject/area of concern that the client would like to explore.

Each time there will be a lesson that will be professionally delivered via video/DVD, then facilitated by a PHI Center staff or volunteer, or we would have a group discussion or participation in a playgroup.

Clients may spend their Baby Bucks the day they are earned, or they can save them to spend at another time.

When a client first arrives for services, they fill out a multiple page application, and participate in an introductory interview/counseling session. In that session we determine their specific needs and talk about a course of action.
After the interview, our staff person fills out a detailed review of the interview, and outlines potential needs or resources for the client in question.
Once the client is enrolled, they have the freedom to select from any of our over 100 classes, as they best fit their needs. Our staff records which class the client takes in a lesson logbook, to eliminate unnecessary redundancy for the clients and our staff.
When a client has participated in the program for a month or longer, we conduct a much more thorough interview to better understand their entire situation. We learn about their finincial, relational, and emotional situation and further explore ways we can specifically assist them. Some times we have the resources available, and sometimes we refer them to other niche agencies who can assist.
The clients personal form is our primary tracking and measuring tool. It contains all the personal notes from our staff as well as the lesson logs. We are able to trace their attendance history, observe their educational intake, and review our notes to see how their situation is progressing.

CEO Comments


During the calendar year 2015, the PHI Center will continue efforts to meet the goals listed for our current fiscal year. Periodic evaluations by the Chief Executive Officer under the Board of Directors will ensure the continued success of those programs, as well as strengthening those programs found to be less successful.

Our focus will be to meet the immediate needs of at least 800 individuals who request assistance from our center, through one of our programs, or referrals to other local human service organizations. ThePHICenter will continue to provide limited medical services such as limited obstetrical ultrasound and pregnancy confirmation.


  • The PHI Center will continue to be open for extended hours to provide evening classes and services for parents that are in the work-force and need assistance.
  • The PHI Center will continue our educational program curriculum to provide mothers and fathers with more knowledge in childbirth preparation, pre-natal care, breast- feeding, and basic baby care and child rearing.
  • The PHI Center will continue a support system for women suffering from post-abortion syndrome. Currently, there are four staff members trained in Surrendering the Secret, a program for post-abortion recovery.
  • The PHI Center will schedule training for our volunteers to improve their ability to meet the needs of our clients, the quality of our record keeping, and other administrative requirements. 
  • The PHI Center plans to hold two major fundraising events this year, a golf tournament and a banquet. We will also expand our committee for the Golf Tournament for greater publicity and participation from new donors and volunteers.
  • The PHI Center will continue to seek churches to participate in our Change for Children campaign as well as help with our volunteerism.
  • The PHI Center will seek to increase public awareness of our facility and programs by participating in community events.

The PHI Center will continue the “Earn While You Learn” educational program, providing approximately 800 mothers and fathers with knowledge in childbirth preparation, pre-natal care, breast-feeding, and infant and toddler care.

  • The PHI Center will continue to assist women, as well as men, in obtaining the emotional and physical necessities related to unwanted and/or unplanned pregnancies or raising children in a low-income, often single parent, environment. To accomplish this goal, we will not only provide educational classes for our clients, but also provide physical items such as maternity clothes, baby clothes, diapers, formula, baby food, etc.
  • The PHI Center will continue with the Pregnancy Support Group to help women better understand the positive role that adoption plays as a pregnancy option. This is a positive environment, providing a support system beyond the immediate family or fathers to be. This tool will be used to draw in more from our teen population.
Staff and volunteers will receive periodic training to improve their ability to meet the needs of our clients and to improve the quality of our record keeping and other administrative requirements. We will also offer diversity training for our staff and volunteers.
