Notes from the nonprofit

We reach couples in crisis from over 98 zip codes in the tristate area. Clients give us a 99.5% approval rating for our comprehensive services, caring staff, and convenient location. We have a small staff and 90+ volunteers who provide over 20,000 hours of service yearly. In the Cincinnati area, we are the first thought, the next step and a most trusted resource for the abortion-vulnerable woman or man facing an untimely pregnancy. We offer a wide range of services at no cost to the client; pregnancy testing & counseling, ultrasounds, male mentoring, STI/STD testing, adoption services, NFP assistance, parenting education, material assistance, 24/7 hotline, and post-abortion healing.

Charting impact

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

Rooted in the God-given dignity of each human life beginning at fertilization, Pregnancy Center East assists those who face difficulties arising from an untimely pregnancy, offers life-affirming alternatives to abortion and promotes chastity.

By offering numerous life-affirming programs, services, and accurate information for families, we have the opportunity to reach a diverse socio-economic clientele from 98 zip codes in the tri-state area. We have a registered sonographer and a medical doctor on staff that utilizes the latest medical technology to help women and men choose life for their unborn children. Our center has a 3D/4D ultrasound machine which provides 3D images as well as 4D videos to clients. We have a strong volunteer base who receive training and education from a medical professional with additional classes throughout the year.

Our chastity program has a full-time staff who encourage and teach the beauty and truth of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, in a way that gives students/parents practical and real-life applications counteracting the cultural confusion that exists in society.

Our Christ-centered board and staff are committed and skilled members with a depth of talent suited to the needs of PCE as expressed in its overall goal and mission statement.

Capabilities
• Strong leadership with faith-filled staff and board
• Financially sustainable model
• Strong financial condition
• Rich legacy- founded in 1982
• A large pool of dedicated volunteers
• Outstanding reputation in the community
• High level of credibility
• Faithful to mission
• A fiscally responsible steward of resources
• The committed and generous donor base

PCE has done an outstanding job of providing pregnancy services and has built an exceptional reputation for honesty, integrity, and caring about its clients. The board has a strategic plan for the future and the capacity to implement it.

The trends for the future indicate that fewer surgical abortions will be performed due to the abortion pill RU-486. This trend will adversely impact the number of clients seeking information from pregnancy centers and shorten the time frame for making critical life-saving decisions.
