Pregnancy support center is growing

The Pregnancy Support Center (PSC) of Southside Virginia, is expanding its reach in order to serve clients in their home communities. The expansion will begin in Buckingham County with a satellite office opening Tuesdays at Ellis Acres in Dillwyn on Sept. 18. The next community to come on board will be Appomattox in late October at its satellite office on 1977 Church St. Appointments are available at all three locations by calling (434) 392-8483 or (434) 391-1011.

PSC serves eight counties: Amelia, Appomattox, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway and Prince Edward. The main center is located at 201 Main St., Suite 1106, Farmville.

PSC serves pregnant and parenting women, men and their children providing free pregnancy testing, pregnancy support services, material goods, prenatal, infant care, parenting and practical fatherhood classes. All of our services are free and confidential.

PSC’s main fundraiser each year is the Walk for Life. This year’s event will take place Sept. 29 at 8 a.m. on the High Bridge trail in Farmville. To register or get sponsors for your walk visit pscfarmville.org.
