Jasper’s Pregnancy Test and Resource Center (PTRC) recently opened the doors to its new facility, located at 600 20th Ave. E in Jasper.
With the new facility, PTRC is now better equipped to serve expectant parents in the community. The upgraded facility boasts several key features, including: a spacious lobby, expanded reception area and clerical space, larger medial rooms equipped for examinations and ultrasounds, a large classroom for educational programs, dedicated counseling rooms, conference space, a community resource room, expanded donation closet, and a separate entrance for donations.
“The Lord’s hand has been evident in our transition to our new space, which is twice the size of our former location. We hope to be more visible to the community, add additional programs and services to meet more needs, and expand what we are already doing so that we can better serve our current clients,” said Jenny Odom, PTRC Executive Director. “We are grateful to our mission partners, The Walker Area Community Foundation, CAWACO, and the churches and organizations who have contributed toward this vision for the PTRC.”
Formerly known as Master’s Plan Ministries, PTRC has been supporting expectant parents for over 30 years. It’s a non-denominational, pro-life organization that offers free medical services and resources from pregnancy testing to postpartum care.
In addition to medical services, PTRC offers parenting programs, both in-person and online. These programs educate and guide expectant parents through the challenges of parenthood. PTRC operates without federal funding, relying on volunteers, a dedicated board of directors, and fundraising efforts. WL
