Pregnancy Resource Center is a ministry dedicated to assisting women in making life giving choices for their children by providing emotional support as well as practical support both during and after pregnancy.  The PRC in Litchfield, operating since 1991, is one center in a network of 14 across Illinois and Indiana.  They serve over 200 clients per year in Montgomery and Macoupin County.


Some of the services they provide are: free on-site pregnancy tests, pregnancy and parenting education, adoption support, referrals for medical care and continuing education, and ongoing prayer emotional support encouragement and friendship.


In addition to financial support, we can provide new or gently used maternity clothing or baby items.  New cribs and car seats are especially needed since used ones cannot be accepted for safety reasons. All donations are tax-deductible.  The center, located at 623 N. State St, is open on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; their  phone is 324-3373.
