Pregnancy Aid Clinic provides free services
For the last 30 years, the Pregnancy Aid Clinic has been helping women make informed decisions about their pregnancies. “Our mission is to support families,” says Buckhead resident Julie Ostrowski, board president of the organization that is supported by donations and an annual fundraising gala. “We offer free, confidential pregnancy tests and ultrasounds and help defray some of the financial cost involved with having a new baby.” The clinic doesn’t provide medical care or perform abortions. Today, the independent group has clinics in Hapeville and Roswell that are open four days a week. The mobile clinic is open six days a week and travels to several locations in Atlanta, as well as Hapeville and Morrow. Days, times of operation and locations are listed on the website.
Expectant parents who participate in “Earn as You Learn” classes receive points toward free car seats, baby and maternity clothing and toys from Pregnancy Aid Clinic boutiques at both locations. “The stores are filled with new and lightly used clothing and baby items donated through the generosity of the local communities,” Ostrowski says. “Reward credits can also be used to get clothing for other children in the family up to size 24 months.”
To provide services for parents who do not attend the free classes, the Roswell store is open to the public and offers deeply reduced prices.
