40th Anniversary Celebration Ribbon Cutting
On Friday, April 8th, the Center was honored by the Torrance Chamber of Commerce with a ribbon cutting celebration, with recognition from the Torrance City Council and Assemblyman David Hadley, who presented a State of California Resolution for 40 years of service to the South Bay Community.
The Center began as a crisis pregnancy hotline in 1971, founded by compassionate women who wanted to help other women experiencing the challenge of a crisis pregnancy. In 1976, the Center opened its doors in its current location as a crisis pregnancy counseling center.
In 1991 the Center was licensed by the State of California as a medical clinic and later expanded services to include breastfeeding and prenatal nutrition education, and STD testing.
In 2013 the Center launched ultrasound services, expanded its hours in order to help more women, and increased the number of staff members to handle the increased client demand.
In it’s 40th Anniversary year, the Center looks forward to launching a sexual integrity program for schools and continuing with its initiative to move to a much needed larger facility.
The 40th Anniversary celebration continues all year, and past volunteers, staff and clients are invited to participate and to contact the Center as soon as possible at 310-320-8976.
