What are Pregnancy Care Centers?

UntitledPregnancy Care Centers (PCC) are resources in the community that provide comfort, support, and assistance to pregnant women in need. We offer a variety of services for new and expecting mothers and educational programs to teach kids about the sanctity of life.

There are now five Catholic Pregnancy Care Centers to assist women and men with unplanned pregnancies with the opening of the newest center in the Fall. Each of these Centers is Catholic-based and independently incorporated, but all are located within the Archdiocese of Hartford.
