FAQs

I am pregnant how can you help?
If you are pregnant and find yourself in need of supplies for your baby or emotional support as you are adjusting to pregnancy or parenthood, please come see us! At the BPCC, we can help with material needs like diapers, formula, baby and maternity clothing as well as other baby items. We are also available to be a friend and someone to talk to. The BPCC offers a number of programs and we happily provide referrals to local agencies and pre and post-natal programs offered in the community.

You are a pregnancy care centre, so do you just help with issues around pregnancy?
No! No matter where you are in the parenting or child rearing journey, we can help. Our clothing room has infant and toddler clothing from newborn to size 4T. We also offer a variety of programs for women, men, families and youth that are open to anyone.

I am a grandparent or guardian and need supplies. Can you help?
All are welcome to the services we provide. If you are helping to raise children that are not your own and are in need of material or emotional support, please don’t hesitate to visit us.

Are your services just for Christians?
Our services are available to anyone regardless of religion, identification or marital status.

What about men? Are your services available to men?
Men are more than welcome to come to the Centre for material supplies and support.  We also offer a program specifically for men called “The Dad Project”.

Are you anti-birth control?
We believe the abstinence is the most effective and healthy form of birth control. However, we encourage couples to be proactive in their reproductive health and preventing unplanned pregnancies.

Do you provide help and support to members of the LGBTQ+ community?
Our doors are open to anyone regardless of gender, gender identity, race, religion or even who they love.

You are pro-life. Do you convince people not to have an abortion?
We believe that everyone has the right to choice. We also believe that everyone needs to make an informed choice. We provide everyone who comes in facing an unexpected pregnancy with up-to-date and factual information on the three choices available when confronted with a crisis pregnancy- parenting, abortion & adoption- and information on the pros/cons of all three decisions.  This is always done in an professional and courteous manner so no offense is ever taken.  No matter the choice, we want everyone to leave the Centre knowing that we will continue to be a place they can turn to for a ear to listen, a hug when they are struggling and friendship.

I have had an abortion in the past.  How can you help?
Many woman (and men) struggle with the outcome of the choice to have an abortion. If you are struggling with the emotions of a previous abortion, we offer a program called “Living in Colour” which helps to move participants from the “grey zone” of unresolved loss to a place of healing and forgiveness.
