Peer Counselling and Advocacy
The Crisis Pregnancy Centre’s goal is to provide you with the support that you need during a crisis pregnancy or
post-abortion trauma. You will be communicating with a volunteer support worker who has received training in crisis intervention. She may not be a licensed counsellor but she has a deep commitment to you and to your specific needs.
The support is not a substitute for professional counselling. Our purpose is to provide you with information that will help you to make a well-informed decision. We care very deeply about the women that we serve. Our desire is to help the woman in an unplanned pregnancy and for her to take the time necessary to make an informed decision. There are difficult issues surrounding a crisis pregnancy; we have a variety of services to provide practical support for you.
We feel that confidentiality is of utmost importance. Your personal information will not be shared, except with your permission when we wish to refer you to other services, or where it is required by law. This occasionally happens in cases like abuse, potential suicide or homicide.
We provide eucational materials reguarding pregnancy and sexual health for our clients. We also have diapers, blankets, shampoo, soap, bottles and quality used bath tubs and baby and maternity clothes as available.
We refer to a large number of community organizations and services when extra help is needed.
