History of the PCC

In the mid-1980s, members of the Oak Harbor and surrounding communities sensed the need to provide a clinic offering pregnancy alternatives to individuals and families facing crisis pregnancy situations. In 1985 this group banded together forming a Steering Committee. Their purpose was to do a community search and form an organization that would provide such a clinic to Whidbey Island communities. The Clinic By-laws and Articles of Incorporation were written with the expert help of Attorney Ken Manni.

The name chosen for the Center (Clinic) at that time was Crisis Pregnancy Center of Whidbey Island. It was later changed to Inter-Island Pregnancy Care Center to better describe the area served by the ministry as well as the function of the ministry. The Oak Harbor Clinic officially opened in September 1986.

The Center was renamed the “Pregnancy Care Clinic” when it became a medical test site in 1999.

The South Whidbey Pregnancy Care Clinic opened in Langley in 2005 and currently serves the South Whidbey population.
