Have you ever been in a place where confidentiality was ignored and or neglected? Ever felt like you were uncomfortable opening up because you couldn’t trust the person you were speaking with? Pregnancy, relationships, STD information, or parenting concerns are all topics that we deal with at the Pregnancy Resource Center. You are justified to be concerned about your privacy with not only the mentioned topics but others as well. Confidentiality matters because your information is just that “YOURS”. As you enter the Pregnancy Resource Center have confidence that all your information will be kept in a secure, confidential file that is only accessed by authorized personnel. Our services are dedicated to meeting the needs of ALL people and below are just a few of the things we do to ensure your confidentiality.

How does the Pregnancy Resource Center keep my information private?

  1. Every volunteer and staff member are screened thoroughly to ensure that they will always meet the needs of our clients NO MATTER WHAT.
  2. Every counselor and nurse are trained under an accredited program to ensure professionalism and proficiency.
  3. Every client file is kept locked in a secure cabinet that only authorized personnel have access to.
  4. Clients meet with counselors in a private room that allow the client to speak freely.
  5. Finally, if there ever was a concern by the client that confidentiality or any other concern was not met, we offer a confidential survey for them to fill out before they leave.

*At PRC we strive to give our clients the best service possible. We are always looking for new ways to continue this care and we look forward to hearing from each client about their experience.

*If you have recently visited PRC and have not yet rated your experience you can rate us on YELP or Facebook. You can also send us a private message on Facebook voicing any concerns or comments about your experience. We appreciate each person that walks through our door and we will continue to serve our community with dignity, respect, love and CONFIDENTIALITY.

What does the word standard even mean? Merriam-Webster defines it as “something established by authority, custom, or general consent as a model or example.” Think about what standards mean for your life and how they have molded you into the person you are. Standards do not have to be thought of as a negative concept but rather a set of guidelines you would like to follow in your life. Many times, we get lost in the hustle and bustle of life that we forget to make decisions for ourselves. This can lower our ability to create our own standards and cause us trouble along the way.

Below are some recommendations for how to begin creating your own standards.

Do: Set Goals (Goals are vital for your standards because without them you will not grow, but rather remain stagnant in your life)

Don’t: Settle (You are worth more than the expectations people set for you! Create your own reality! Your standards should be met or you need to move on from the event disagreeing with them.)

Do: Ask for advice (Family or peers may have standards that might give you ideas on how to start your own)

Don’t: Lose perspective (Losing perspective between what your reality is and what you are trying to fit into your life that may not be best for you in the long run. Sometimes we want something so badly that we are willing to risk all the good we have created for ourselves. Don’t lose yourself for someone, something, or a false reality that the world has shown us.)

Do: Be mindful (of your strengths and weaknesses so as not to stress yourself out any further but to instead learn and grow from the standards you create)

Don’t: Ever give up! (You can always achieve what you set your mind on)
