Pregnancy Tests

  • We offer free lab quality pregnancy tests so that you can find out right away if you test positive or negative. If you are anxious, excited, or afraid, we are here to help you. Let our trained consultants give you the information that you need. Pregnancy tests are offered by walk-in or appointment.


Education on Abortion, Adoption, & Parenting

  • Stowe PRC is a safe place for you to turn when you are considering abortion, adoption, and parenting. You have decisions to make and we can offer you the education that you need. Consultations are offered by appointment and walk-in.


Resource Referrals

  • If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and you need a job, a meal, a doctor, or a home, Stowe is here to help. Our trained staff will assist you in your area of need. Many services are available right here at 888 Parsons Ave., Columbus, Ohio 43206. Those that aren't we will refer you to. Your needs are important to us.


Post Abortion Healing

  • If you have experienced the loss of abortion, there is help and healing available for you, whether it’s been two weeks or twenty years. You are not alone, and there are women who have been there and are willing to help.


Earn While You Learn

  • Earn While You Learn (EWYL) is a win-win for you. Spend some time growing your parenting skills, building relationships with women who are here to support you, and earn points to use in our Boutique. Topics range from sleep safety to understanding the cry of your infant. There are also classes for mothers of toddlers, like potty training and child safety. Your points can be redeemed for diapers, baby clothing, bottles, and other necessities for your child. EWYL classes are offered on your schedule. Come in once a month or once a week and cash in on the items you need for your family.
