Who We Are

At the Pregnancy Help Center, we strive to treat everyone who walks through our doors with kindness, compassion and in a consistent, caring manner. We treat each client as a whole person, considering all her health, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs.

Our Mission is to provide a safe, caring environment where every woman facing a crisis pregnancy can receive information, education and practical assistance in order to eliminate the crisis, and choose life for her baby; and to inspire others to embrace sexual health and integrity.

Our Vision is to make abortion unwanted today and unthinkable in future generations.


What We Do

The Pregnancy Help Center is a 501(c)(3) organization offering free pregnancy testing, options consultations, limited obstetric ultrasounds, and other free services to equip and educate clients so they can make an informed decision. We provide evidence-based information, someone to talk to, compassion, and most of all…hope for our clients.

The Center is licensed by the State of California as a California Community Clinic and is the only licensed medical clinic in the South Bay with a pro-life mission to change the hearts and minds of clients and the community towards a life-affirming point of view.


What We Believe

As an organization we believe:

  • that all human life is precious
  • that human life begins at conception
  • in sexual purity/abstinence before marriage
  • that prayer and faith in God are necessary to accomplish our mission


1976 VolunteersHistory

With much determination and foresight, 50 years ago a small group of caring and compassionate women founded a crisis pregnancy helpline. After a few years of helpline counseling, the women felt that a meeting place was needed for face-to-face counseling, free pregnancy testing, financial and medical referrals, and information about abortion, so 45 years ago an office was opened in April 1976. We became a licensed medical clinic and changed our name to the Pregnancy Help Center. In the ensuing years, we began offering limited obstetric ultrasound testing to verify a viable pregnancy, prenatal nutrition education, and STD testing.
