The Family Life Center of Auglaize County is a pro-life ministry to women and men
regarding pregnancy decisions. We provide factual information about parenting and
adoption. We provide information about abortion procedures and risks. However, we
never recommend or refer for abortions. We also lend support to parents and families
affected by unplanned pregnancies. We do not recommend or refer for abortions.
The mission of the Family Life Center of Auglaize County is to be a Christ centered
care center that provides consultations, guidance, education and referral to all
women, men, teens, and parents who experience unplanned or crisis pregnancies.
The Family Life Center of Auglaize County will become the primary center of caring,
understanding, education, encouragement and hope to individuals of all ages who
are experiencing untimely pregnancies. The Family Life Center of Auglaize County
will endeavor to reach out to communities in West Central Ohio through its compassionate
services and programs.
The Family Life Center opened its doors in October of 2008 at 201 West North St.
We were there for 1 year and had a record shattering 8 clients. Using our old way
of thinking we though that women, teens wanted an out of the way place to come get
their pregnancy tests.
But times have changed in just the last few years. There is not the stigma on teen
pregnancy. Girls are more open about their pregnancies. As a result we needed to
relocate to find a place that would be more accessible and open to all.
In August 2008 we moved to 112 S. Front St. In the GO BUCKS Building. As a result
of that move in the next year to October of 2008 we have increased our clients to
over 80. That may not seem like a lot but we are happy that we are able to help
young women in need. We have a working relationship with the Auglaize County Health
Department and we are an agency that helps Ohio Jobs and Family Services when women
come in for cash assistance. Pregnancy teens/women are sent to the FLC to do volunteer
work or do independent study on various topics related to pregnancy/parenting.
We have recently moved to new location, 150 E. Spring, so that we can make room
for our new ultrasound machine. We hope to be able to perform limited ultrasounds
