Mission Statement

The mission of the Bay Area Pregnancy Center is to protect the sanctity of human life and to emulate God’s love by providing Christian counseling, services, and goods to mothers, children, and families in need. 


Founded in 1985 by seven ministers, the Bay Area Pregnancy Center was established to assist and support women with unplanned pregnancies. As much greater needs beyond the pregnancy became apparent, our role expanded to aid the existing family in developing sustainable life skills. Today , we have three centers. We have locations in Clearwater, High Point, and St. Petersburg. These centers serve over 1,500 clients per year including mothers, fathers, children, and grandparents.
