About Us

What is the PRC?

Established in 1986, the Columbia Gorge Pregnancy Resource Centers is a faith-based, nonprofit organization, which offers free pregnancy tests, peer counseling, parenting education, and resources for children ages newborn to 24 months.

We give life-affirming options to those individuals and/or couples who may be experiencing an unexpected or planned pregnancy who desire additional resources.

We are here to help!
