What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Supporting women and their children with free services for 17 years, Agape is challenged by the growing needs in Williamson and Travis counties for the most basic of resources. Agape PRC has expanded its outreach since March of 2017, when the new ICU Mobile Unit hit the road with free services, including: Mobile Pregnancy Tests; Limited Ultrasound; and Pregnancy Counseling. In December of 2017, both the Main Center and the Mobile Units were upgraded to medical clinic status. These changes have expanded our footprint in the Greater Austin Area, enabling Agape to reach more women and their families, but also increased the yearly budget by 40% in 2018. As of November 2021, Agape continues to grow. Over 1000 clients were seen in 2020, with 72% reporting race as other than white. The plurality of clients seen identified as Hispanic/Latino, at nearly 46%. Agape must maximize impact to clients by increasing training, training and resources.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Agape Pregnancy Resource Center exists to demonstrate and share
the life-changing message of Jesus Christ by providing practical help and loving support to those facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We provide limited medical services, parenting education, baby resources and emotional support to women, their children and their support partners. All services and resources are free.

Our biggest emphasis in 2022 will be to increase staffing and programs to meet the needs of an ever-growing client base.

Networking with community partners such as churches and other nonprofits, we can expand the reach of our mobile pregnancy center. Funding must increase to support our growth, and the focus is on community partnerships, private donors and grants.

Train two additional nurses to perform sonograms, expanding access to free sonograms both at the main office and on the mobile unit.

Establish new community partners to provide diapers and other new baby items. Individuals still donate diapers but we need thousands more each year to supply to our clients.

Expand mobile services to include two additional locations.

Large, year-end donations enable Agape to hire the needed staff and implement programs needed to sustain growth.

Research and outreach is ongoing to find additional partners who can provide diapers and new baby items.

One location has been confirmed for a new mobile outreach site. The second new site is being explored near the University of Texas in conjunction with a campus student group.
