Hard hats needed at Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center

FALLBROOK – It’s been years in the making, but the week of Sept. 25, hard hats will be needed at the Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center. The deconstruction of the building purchased at 121-127 E. Hawthorne St. in Fallbrook in December 2015 will begin.

To celebrate the beginning of construction, FPRC is hosting at “Hard Hat Party” 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, in their parking lot, located behind the building at 121- 127 E. Hawthorne St. The community is invited to come and to learn how the facility will positively impact Fallbrook and how they can join in helping make the project a reality. All attending will receive a commemorative hard hat. Children are welcome.

The Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center is in a $600,000 capital campaign to raise funds for the construction, which will allow them to provide additional pregnancy care services to their growing clientele. They had over 800 client visits in 2017.

After construction is completed, FPRC will apply for primary care medical clinic status, allowing them to offer additional medical pregnancy care services free to women in their educational programs. The community efforts have brought them to within $120,000 of their goal.

“Most of our clients come seeking a free pregnancy test in an unplanned pregnancy; however, some come because they need encouragement in parenting and additional resources for a new baby arriving in the near future,” Executive Director Carolyn Koole said, “We’re here to make sure no mother faces pregnancy alone, especially when they are in crises in other areas of their lives impacting both the mother and baby. We are thrilled that soon we will provide additional services on-site allowing us to see our moms more often, assuring us that they are physically and emotionally well, and it also gifts us with time to grow our relationships with them. We genuinely love our clients.”
