The Pregnancy Support Center of the Tri-Cities, Inc is committed to providing compassionate care to women unprepared for pregnancy by offering education, resources and practical help to assist them in making life affirming choices.  
We do not provide or refer for abortions.
Since March of 1987, our goal has been to help meet the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of individuals facing unintended pregnancy.  The Pregnancy Support Center empowers a mother to preserve the life of her unborn child by providing her with the educational information needed to make an informed decision.  The Gospel is lovingly presented at the appropriate time.
The Pregnancy Support Center strives to counteract financial pressures by offering free, confidential services and access to resources supporting both mother and child's health and well-being.
The Pregnancy Support Center exists to preserve lives, encourage hearts, and strengthen relationships with God.  We want our clients to know that we genuinely care about them and receive no financial gain from their pregnancy decision.

The Pregnancy Support Center of the Tri-Cities, Inc. (formerly know as the Tri-Cities Crisis Pregnancy Center, Inc.) opened in March of 1987 through the corporate effort of several churches and individuals in the Tri-Cities area who wanted to see women offered information and practical support in a caring environment.  In the past 27 years, we have received over 55,000 calls and have seen more than 5,914 women.  Many pregnant women we have served reconsidered their initial preference toward abortion, choosing instead to carry their children to term.  We have welcomed many women into the Body of Christ and rejoiced with the many who rededicated their lives to the Lord. 
CEO Statement
As Executive Director, it has truly been  an honor to serve the Tri-Cities and the surrounding counties for the past six years.  I would like to add that the free, confidential services provided by the Pregnancy Support Center are a savings to the client and the community.  The value to the community is extensive since the decisions that are made affect the client's entire life.  The PSC provides these services regardless of what the client's intentions may be regarding their pregnancy.  Additional services are also provided for the women who choose abortion as their option. 
The PSC does not receive any state or federal funds, nor do we lobby or contribute for political purposes.  During these economically challenging times, there is an ever-increasing need for our free services.
The staff and volunteers are committed to upholding the sanctity of human life each day by speaking the truth in love while meeting the spiritual, emotional, and material needs of the men and women in our community.
Board Chair Statement
The Pregnancy Center has a very special place in my heart because as a young, single adult, I faced two crisis pregnancies in my own life. How wonderful it would have been to have a safe, supportive, non-judgemental environment where caring, compassionate people would minister to my needs.  Many years ago, when my husband met the director during a business appointment, he was so impressed by what was being done, that he encouraged me to become a part of it.  As the old saying goes, "The rest is history!"
As president of the board of directors, I have seen many successes and challenges in this organization.  Networking with other community organizations and churches continues to grow.  The annual Baby Bottle Blessing fundraiser has been embraced by more churches.  Staff and volunteers continue to amaze me with their dedication and hard work.  However, we are challenged by the need for more volunteers, board members and financial resources to improve and expand the services we can provide for our communities.

CEO/ED/Board Comments
As Executive Director, our greatest challenges are having enough people to meet the daily demands and the financial means to serve clients, to add new programs, and to expand the ministry to meet more needs.  If these needs are met, we will be able to fulfill our desire to become a medical center and provide ultrasounds and STD testing for our clients in the future.
