Mission

To help women (and men) realize and maximize their full potential through resources and faith. Our vision is to restore strong families to the community.

Notes from the nonprofit

Genesis PRC is meant to bridge the gap between social injustice and God’s Love. We do not advocate abortion. We do, however, understand there are many factors at play when making this decision. A pregnant woman cannot hear about the love of God when she has no heat, no food, no water, or no shelter. If these basic needs are not met, women in crisis cannot hear the Spiritual message that God loves them and will make provisions. Genesis PRC seeks to aid in healing through providing resources to pregnant women and their unborn child’s father in a manner that they can become self-sufficient. GPRC provides a caring community where women feel they are cared for and not just the baby they are carrying.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Consider the environment of Detroit. Non-fatal shooting and robberies increased in 2019. According to the University of Michigan, Detroit’s poverty rate is at 35%, three times higher than the national average. Moreover, the child poverty rate is 50%. This type of environment puts an extraordinary amount of stress on a pregnant woman. Lack of quality resources, overcrowded clinics with overtaxed staff, few fresh and healthy food options, inadequate public transportation and/or the lack of personal transportation all mixed with an inadequate public school system creates a sense of hopelessness – all contributing factors for low birth weights, infant mortality and abortion. Genesis PRC seeks to aid in healing through providing resources to pregnant women and their unborn child’s father in a manner that they can become self-sufficient.

Charting impact

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

The main goal of Genesis PRC is that at the end of a woman's time with us, she is ready to step out into the world more confident that she can take care of herself and her child(ren). She is able to identify toxic behaviors and relationships. She will seek out healthy and nurturing relationships and surround herself with people who care, support and pour love into her. She will experience the love of Christ throughout her journey and continue her walk with Him as her guide and draw upon Him for her strength through trials and weaknesses.
