The Goldendale Pregnancy Resource Center is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3, faith-based organization serving the community of Goldendale and Klickitat county, and is a member of CareNet ( (CareNet recommends that member pregnancy resource centers not participate in sidewalk counseling with graphic images or protest at abortion clinics. Goldendale PRC board of directors, paid staff, and volunteer staff all adhere to that recommendation.)

Goldendale Pregnancy Resource Center is not a medical clinic, and does not provide birth control, offer referrals to abortion clinics or perform abortions. We are a pro-life ministry but will not condemn anyone that is making or has made a decision to have an abortion; we hope to help in the education and healing process.

Goldendale PRC is governed by a local board, overseen by an executive director, and supported by individuals, churches, and community organizations. We use no government funds.
