This week, the doors opened on the brand-new home of Anderson Pregnancy Care. The ribbon cutting ceremony with the Anderson Chamber of Commerce signifies the realization of a long time dream for many in the community.
Until this week, a small home on West Whitner Street had been the humble headquarters for
Anderson Pregnancy Care (formerly Anderson Crisis Pregnancy Center). Accommodating the growing needs of the clients became increasingly difficult. Their needs did not go unnoticed. Kevin and Suzanne Collins noticed. The Collins spend much of their time volunteering for the center. They know first hand that APC is special and have experienced how it impacts families in such a positive way. They saw too, how much more would be possible with more space.
Last year, Kevin and his team at Alair Homes Clemson generously donated the building that is now the center’s new home. The Collins did not stop there, however. Alair Clemson has overseen all the renovations and has been integral in finding other community partners and businesses to help bring this vision to life. Much of the supplies and labor has been given because of the generosity of this community. What a testament to our town.
The center’s new home is conveniently located at 1303 North Murray Avenue, near the Anderson Recreation Center. With this move, the center will finally be able to implement services and offerings that were not possible in the previous space. The new facility will allow the center to provide medical services, including ultrasounds. Volunteers can now watch after clients’ young children in a dedicated play area. Having a safe space for children allows clients the opportunity to fully focus on their classes and receive any necessary support.
Inside the newly painted brick exterior, exists the same team that spends their days (and nights) creating a safe place for expectant moms, new moms, and families to receive physical, emotional, and spiritual support. Suzanne’s design incorporating barn doors and shiplap walls is inviting, soothing, and even hopeful. The beautiful new space is now an accurate reflection of the warmth and love felt inside.
Anderson Pregnancy Care is a safe place for expectant moms, new moms, and families to receive physical, emotional, and spiritual support. We are independent, non political, and nonsectarian. We are prepared to help you regardless of your age, race, and religion. All services are provided in a loving and confidential environment. We understand the unique situation of each client.
