Description:

The Abortion Recovery Centre (ARC) was established to assist women who have had an abortion in their past and who are experiencing difficult emotional reactions to their abortion. Since 1984, we have provided our services under the non-profit agency of the Pregnancy Care Centre (PCC). In 2009 we separated our post abortion services from the PCC in order to better serve the needs of the post abortion community. The Abortion Recovery Centre is guided by the principles and statements of the Pregnancy Care Centre. ARC collaborates with the PCC's staff, volunteers and Board of Directors. The Abortion Recovery Centre staff and peer volunteers do not have academic degrees in counselling, nor are we licenced professionals. We are peer grief counsellors; we companion our clients through the painful and (sometimes overwhelming) emotional reactions to their abortion decision. Most of our peer counsellors are post abortive themselves and have walked that journey of pain. Our peer volunteers are trained in-house to facilitate our grief groups and/ or one on one sessions. All volunteers and staff are required to adhere to the principles, policies and statements of the PCC. The Abortion Recovery Centre follows the philosophy of the companioning model of grief care. We are a faith based, non-profit agency. All of our services are FREE and confidential. Donations are welcome.
