Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Each year in Alaska, many women experience unplanned pregnancies, with more than 1200 choosing abortion as a result each year. Studies show that 64% of post-abortive women felt in some way coerced into having an abortion, and 83% report that they would have carried their pregnancy to term if they had partner or family support during their pregnancy. The Community Pregnancy Center is committed to stepping into the gap to give women and men the support and resources they need to make a life-affirming decision regarding their preborn child.

Charting impact

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

The mission of the Community Pregnancy Center is to provide compassionate care, helpful services, and hope to women and men facing decisions about unplanned pregnancies and parenting. We do this in a safe, respectful, confidential and professional manner that is grounded by faith in Jesus Christ. It is our belief that by meeting women and men, the support, resources, and tools needed to become knowledgeable and engaged parents we not only help them to strengthen their family, but ultimately the greater community.
Ultimately it is our goal for the Community Pregnancy Center be a place where women and men find the compassion, care, and relationships to help them with life choices related to unplanned pregnancies and parenting.

In 2020 we aim to:
• Increase the awareness and visibility of the Community Pregnancy Center through a community outreach and marketing plan utilizing a variety of methods and mediums
• Expand access to programs and services through increased operating hours
• Increase service capacity through growth of client services team and provision of high quality training and professional development.
• Increase the Center's sustainability through building relationships and engaging the public.
• Increase awareness and relationships with medical providers of our roles and services and to develop lines of mutual support.

The objectives to help up accomplish our goals include:
OUTREACH & MARKETING

• Increase use of Google Ads and Google My Business with engaging messages to our target population

RELATIONSHIPS WITH MEDICAL COMMUNITY

Three things - our faith, our programs, and our people - have built our capacity to accomplish our goals and mission.

The Community Pregnancy Center is a faith-based organization committed to providing support, encouragement, and compassion to women and men facing pregnancy and parenting decisions regardless the choice they make.

The programs and services at the center provide information about all options available for women and men facing decisions about unplanned pregnancy and parenting.
• All services are provided at absolutely no cost to clients, ensuring the center does not financially benefit from any decision made.
• We remain committed to supporting women and men regardless of the decisions they make. One way we do this is through our PACE – Post Abortion Compassion and Encouragement program that helps people find recovery and healing from past abortions.
• The Community Pregnancy Center is strategically located in Anchorage’s U-Med district close to two universities, two hospitals, multiple medical providers, and close to public transportation.
• Our Ultrasound program provides limited OB Ultrasound exams five days per week by having four nurses specifically trained perform ultrasound examinations allowing us to confirm a viable pregnancy each day we are open.
• Connection and relationships are integral with those we serve. With this in mind our commitment to follow up and ongoing mentoring connected with our Earn While You Learn Programs are very important aspects of our programs.
• Our Dadhood program exists to specifically engage men in the pregnancy and parenting journey.
• Our Earn While You Learn Program provides group and individual education, as well as ongoing mentoring, to women and men that helps prepare them for parenthood and through toddler stage. In addition to learning valuable information they also earn “baby bucks” to use in our “Baby Cache” store for car seats, cribs, diapers, wipes, formula, baby clothes, and more. This program has proven to help those with an unplanned pregnancy and other life choices.

People (and relationships) are essential to everything we accomplish. We have a dedicated and gifted staff of eight employees, and nearly 30 volunteers who are trained and equipped to provide compassionate care, helpful services, and hope. An additional team of 50 volunteers help plan fundraising and event planning throughout the year. Our volunteer team are essential and allow us to direct significant program dollars to programs and those we serve instead of operational expenses. Our Client Services volunteers complete a comprehensive training program, including extensive on the job training experience, prior to serving directly with women or men in the center. They also participate in quarterly professional development sessions to continue their learning and growth.

• In fall of 2019, we purchased and put into use a new ultrasound machine replacing our previous one which had been used for twelve years.
• We are on track to pay off the remaining mortgage on our building by the end of 2020.
• Our first evening hours have been successful, and we are now evaluating a second evening to add to our schedule and working to recruit and train a client services team.
• A grant has been secured to hire a consultant to evaluate and redesign our fundraising dashboard, calendar, and tools for more effective deployment of resources with a goal of increasing revenue.
• A snapshot of those we served in 2019 is:
o 2256 client visits
o 32,080 items given out through our baby store (diapers, wipes, formula, clothing, car seats, etc.)
o We predominantly serve single women
o In 2019 the ages of the women and men we serve were:
 14 or younger 1%
 15 to 19 10%
 20 to 24 30%
 25 to 29 28%
 30 to 34 17%
 35 and older 13%
 No Age given 1%
• The Dadhood Program has seen an almost 70 percent increase in participants since 2017, and a 300% increase on volunteer Dadhood Coaches.
• Technology innovations have been introduced for the client intake process, record keeping, and educational curriculum.
• Anchorage area middle and high schools have been visited by CPC’s Nurse Manager and have information posted and available for students, staff, and teachers.
• 32 Churches currently provide financial support, and many others encourage member participation and volunteering.
• Volunteers for client services and fundraising/events come from over 45 different churches from the greater Anchorage area.
• Heath care providers and social service agencies refer women, men, and families to the Community Pregnancy Center for support and services regularly.

In 2020 and beyond, the Community Pregnancy Center is looking toward the future of our organization and how we engage and interface with our community .
• We are preparing for a joint Strategic Planning and Visioning process to engage Board, Center Leadership Staff, and key stakeholders with the aim of improving services to our community, engaging more medical providers, and increasing sustainability.
• We will be completing a facilities audit to determine the best use for our current facility and explore future expansion opportunities to engage more women and men from our community and state.
• We will continue to engage with other Pregnancy Resource Centers in Alaska through the Alaska Pregnancy Center Coalition for best practices sharing and support.
