Mission Statement

The mission of the Bay Area Pregnancy Center is to protect the sanctity of human life and to emulate God’s love by providing Christian counseling, services, and goods to mothers, children and families in need.

Background

Founded in 1985 by seven ministers, the Bay Area Pregnancy Center was established to assist and support women with unplanned pregnancies. As much greater needs beyond the pregnancy became apparent, our role expanded to aid the existing family in developing sustainable life skills. Today , we have three centers. We have a Clearwater center, a High Point Center, and a center in Lealman which is located on the property of Holy Martyr's church. These centers serve over 1,500 clients per year including, mothers, fathers, children and grandparents.

R & R (Remember & Release)

Although we promote alternatives to abortion, this group works through the healing process without judgment to those who have experienced abortion. We are passionate about helping hurting women through this journey. Caring and loving peer counselors guide women through love, positive attitude, actions, and scripture, all with a comforting and accepting heart. (James 5:16)
