Our Vision & Values

 

 

The Victoria Pregnancy Centre is a Christian-based organization; which means we aim to show the love of God to each and every person that comes through our door. We do that by extending grace, compassion and respect to the clients that we serve.  

We offer FREE peer-lead programs and services that are committed to: 

  

Empowering Individuals to make fully informed and self-directed decisions. We do this by offering information that is accurate, evidence-based and non-judgmental.

  

Creating Safety by supporting individuals in making decisions that are consistent with their values and by providing supports for all pregnancy outcomes. 

  

Creating Options by offering programs and services that address the cultural, social, spiritual and economic concerns which cause individuals to see abortion as their only option to unexpected pregnancy. 

All services are confidential and offered regardless of race, colour, religion, creed, national origin, age, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, lifestyle or circumstances. 

  

Funding 

 

As a charity, we are supported by the generosity and kindness of individual donors, foundations, agencies, corporations, churches and promotional events. We do not receive government funding for our care.

 

We are: 

  • One of more than 60 independent community-based agencies affiliated with Pregnancy Care Canada (PCC) committed to operating in alignment with PCC’s Commitment of Care and Competence. 

  • A team of caring, trained staff and volunteers, under the supervision of a full-time Executive Director. 

  • A non-political incorporated society. Our charitable registration number is 88971-7369 RR 0001.

Who We Serve

Our Clients & Community

 

Our Clients

 

Many of our clients have limited support systems and limited resources which all contribute to a cycle of limited choices. This can often lead to feelings of ambivalence when it comes to pregnancy options.

We provide alternatives and options for women and families who may feel that they have no other choice but an unwanted abortion. We work with them to reduce the economic, educational and isolation barriers to parenting.

 

We create a safe environment by supporting individuals of all races, religions and sexuality in making informed decisions that are consistent with their own values and by providing supports for all pregnancy outcomes.​​

Our Community

Our clients often feel alone, and many of them are isolated from friends and family physically because of a move or immigration, work or unsupportive relationships. Clients who are new to Vancouver Island often feel isolated from this community. Our role is to provide not only a personal link, but also a community link. We do this in a number of ways and offer the following free services:

  • Prenatal groups

  • Doula - a trained birth companion and labour support

  • New parents groups

  • Practical skills training through The Bright Course

  • Friends of VPC Church groups

  • Support after abortion

There are many ways you can help us support families in our community!
