Important Notice regarding COVID-19

Hello Dear Friends of Abel,

Thank you all for your amazing support and prayers during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been such a challenge for our country, state and communities. We are now open and clients are coming into the center for services. We are accepting monetary donations at the center as well as online. We are also now accepting physical donations of baby diapers, baby clothes and maternity clothes at the center. We prefer that the clothes be new and in packaging if at all possible. Please continue to pray for the Abel PRC, our volunteers, employees and leadership team.

Thank you and may the Lord bless you, and spread the word, WE ARE NOW OPEN!!

In Christ,
Matthew Schaetzle (Executive Director)

Information on Abortion & Alternatives

Hearing the words, “You’re pregnant,” for many women brings fear instead of joy and leads some to consider abortion as a means of coping with an unexpected pregnancy. We are here to offer compassionate coaching and helpful information, such as: ultrasound confirmation of pregnancy, abortion risks, procedures, and alternatives (adoption & parenting) and helpful resources in the community. All of these services are confidential and free. Our lay counselors are ready to help each woman make the best & healthiest decisions for herself & her baby

Pregnancy Testing

Abel PRC offers confidential and free pregnancy testing for those in our communities who may think they could be pregnant.

Limited Ultrasound for Pregnancy Confirmation

Earn While You Learn Program

This is a program by which parents can receive needed baby items in exchange for their time and willingness to learn about one or more of the following topics: pregnancy, adoption, parenting, the Gospel according to John, abstinence, money management and men’s issues through the Men’s Fraternity program. By participating in the above way, a client is given “Mommy/Daddy Dollars” that can then be spent on baby items (i.e. diapers, crib, stroller, car seat and high chair). We are committed to helping our clients to be happy, healthy parents. We care about the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of our clients. It is our hope that the Earn While You Learn Program will be helpful in each of these areas.
