A CHRIST-CENTERED, LIFE-AFFIRMING MINISTRY
We realize that a woman will not care how much we know, until she knows how much we care. Because the Gospel is the heartbeat of Atlanta Pregnancy Resource Center (APRC), we share it in both word and deed knowing that Jesus Christ is the answer for every person in any situation. Therefore, APRC is a place of compassionate care in which staff and volunteers are eager to assist our clients so they are empowered and equipped to choose life for their babies and have real hope for their futures.
MISSION OF APRC
APRC provides emotional, physical and spiritual support to women and men in pregnancy-related circumstances. In a non-judgmental atmosphere, our clients can learn of the possible risks and negative consequences of abortion, the realities of embryonic and fetal development as well as truthful and medically accurate information about all pregnancy options. Both parenting and adoption are positively and realistically presented as alternatives to abortion. If a woman has previously had an abortion, we encourage her to participate in our, or another, abortion recovery assistance program to facilitate healing.
Initially, APRC's mission was to meet the needs of women and families in pregnancy-related situations and empower them to make informed and positive choices for themselves and their children. However, even in the beginning we’ve always seen an unusually high number of men who have accompanied the women to APRC. As of 31 December 2014, men comprise approximately 22% of our clientele. We are uniquely positioned and qualified to minister to and serve the men involved in these pregnancy-related circumstances as well. APRC seeks to impact his heart to influence and support her for a life-affirming choice.
APRC is a woman and family focused ministry. We believe women deserve better than abortion and should have the opportunity and support they need to consider all of their pregnancy options and to make life-affirming choices without coercion, fear, intimidation, or threat. APRC equips and empowers women to make informed and educated choices regarding their pregnancy and also provides relational, educational, material, and spiritual support needed to encourage her to move forward with her pregnancy, if that is her choice. We accomplish this one woman at a time, one pregnancy at a time, one family at a time.
