A Center of Hope CPC, operating as the Pregnancy Resource Center of Walton has ministered to the Walton County community since 1996. In 2005, upon the potential closing of the center, the community rallied together, and prayed asking God’s direction and will for the ministry. A 20+ member advisory council was established and from that a 7-member Board of Directors formed to govern the by-laws of the 501-c3 non-profit corporation. A new location was donated by Summit Baptist Church in the form of a house adjacent to their property. New volunteers were recruited and trained, local churches began to give on a monthly basis and individual donors gave generously to the ministry. In 2006 the PRCW moved to its current location in Loganville, GA.
The PRCW converted to a medical clinic and opened as a Medical Center- Women’s Health and Wellness Clinic of Walton- in Monroe, GA, in the fall of 2011. Women’s Health and Wellness Clinic of Walton offers Pregnancy Testing and Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound free of charge to women with unexpected pregnancies and STI Testing in Monroe, as well as Education and Consultations at Pregnancy Resource Center of Walton in the house on Summit Church’s property.
