What we aim to solve New!

Women facing unplanned pregnancies often are not presented with the full range of options they have in deciding whether to carry their pregnancies to term. Heart of Texas PRC thoroughly explains the life-affirming choices, the follows up with financial, educational, emotional and spiritual support before and after a pregnancy, using what we call our "Circle of Care."

Charting Impact

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

Our goal is to steadily reach more women facing unplanned pregnancies in the poorest neighborhoods in Austin, across the street from the primary high school serving that area. We began taking clients in October of 2012 and officially opened our doors in January of 2013. In the fall of 2016, we opened a second center in suburban Austin; in January 2018, we relocated our original center to a site more accessible by prospective clients and large enough to serve a case load that grew from 265 visits in 2013 to 2,188 visits in 2017. Based on June year-to-date figures, we expect to top 2,500 client visits this year.

The Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center will employ these seven broad strategic approaches for 2015: 1. Raise our profile in the area we serve: Our prospective clients need to know we are located in their neighborhood, within walking distance or a short bus ride, and know we have services they need very badly. 2 .Expand our corps of volunteers so we can better serve our clients at the center. 3. Expand our donor base to include more mid-level and recurring donors, so we can augment the donations of material items with supplies we buy in bulk; obtain more sophisticated teaching materials; and add a mobile pregnancy center and a bus to pick up class participants. 4. Institute the Earn While You Learn program for our clients' care and needs pre- to post-pregnancy. 5. Increase the number of area churches with which we have relationships. 7. Increase our efforts to earn grants from private foundations.

In order to function properly, a pregnancy resource center needs a few physical assets: an ultrasound device to show clients images of their babies and let them listen to their heartbeats; a room large enough to house a boutique filled with baby and maternity clothing, and several smaller rooms where client advocates may speak to clients confidentially. Our offices offer those resources. Private donors and churches frequently provide consumables like diapers and formula. Everything we offer comes at no cost to our clients. Our income, which reached $319,230 in 2017, allows us an executive director, four or five part-time staff members, an operations director, rent, utilities and other necessities – as well as supplies for clients. Externally, we also have support. The Austin area is served by 11 other PRCs, and we all participate in an umbrella organization called the Central Texas Coalition for Life.

Our database is our simplest and best indicator of success. We track demographic information, religious affiliation, spiritual attitudes and intentions to carry or not through the period a client remains in contact with the center. So, increasing client numbers is one indicator of progress. The indicator most important to us, however, can be found on two lines of our standard annual report: how many mothers came to us thinking of abortion, and how many of them changed their minds. Not only do many of our clients accept Christ, they get to know one another as well, building relationships and growing emotionally and spiritually, to the point where they can become mentors or client advocates themselves.

Our organization has grown by leaps and bounds since we opened. Our number of client visits increased from 265 at the original center in 2013 to 2,188 at both centers in 2017. From January through June of this year, we have handled 1,207 appointments, and we expect our 2018 total will exceed 2,500. Most of that growth is being seen at our relocated east Austin center.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
