Thank you for your Interest in the Pregnancy Care Clinic!

The PCC volunteer staff is the heart of our ministry. We would not be able to function without them. Our volunteers serve in a variety of ways: as peer counselors, medical professionals, receptionists, laundry volunteers, Boutique volunteers, housekeepers for Clinics and Boutiques, Board members, fundraisers, Church liaisons, and yard and building maintenance workers.

The number of hours donated by our volunteers is extremely hard to estimate, but is in excess of 2,500 hours per year. If we were to hire people to provide these services, it would cost the Clinic more than to $30,000 per year in additional expenses.

The PCC is now accepting applications for the following volunteer positions:

  • Peer Counselors
  • Fundraising Committee Members
  • Housekeepers
  • Board Members
  • Receptionists
  • Admin Volunteers

Our Clinics are located in Oak Harbor and Langley. For more information or to obtain a volunteer application packet, please contact the Client Service Director in the location you desire:
Oak Harbor  (360) 675-2096
Langley      (360) 221-2909

 

Volunteer Training

Training will be provided to those who are interested in serving the needs of our clients. There is a small fee for the training manual. Each volunteer will be required to complete a 20-hour classroom-style course, and then on-the-job orientation is facilitated by the Client Service Directors. Volunteers will be provided with the skills that equip them to meet the needs of our clients.
