The words, “We’re Here for You,” exemplifies who we are as a resource for women and families in the community. We are here to meet and serve individuals right where they are, at this moment in their life, during their time of need. We are a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment, providing programs and services free of charge. Every individual who crosses our path is treated with kindness, compassion, and in a caring manner.
Over the last several months, we have highlighted each of PDHC’s four pillars of service. We started with the impact of our Hotline and Center Services, followed by our Family Empowerment Program of parenting education and practical support. Last month, we highlighted our Common Sense Culture program, impacting middle and high school students with healthy choices education. This month, we focus on our Abortion Recovery Program, which helps individuals restore, reclaim, and recover from a past abortion experience.
At PDHC, each program and service began because there was an essential need in the community. Our programs and services have continued to grow and evolve over the last 41 years, positively impacting thousands of lives and we will continue to provide the same love and compassionate care to everyone we serve.
Unfortunately, the latest opposition to our excellent work happened on Monday, when the Columbus City Council passed three ordinances: 0143-2022, 2216-2022, and 2215-2022. Ordinance 2215 specifically targets pregnancy resource centers. For links to recent news article and coverage of the City Council meeting, see below.

Thank you for being there for us. Please continue to pray for the safety and protection of our centers, staff, volunteers, and those we serve.
