Pregnancy Assitance Frankston Inc was formed because of the recognition and awareness by many people within the community that there is an overwhelming and desperate need for a centre to support women and girls of any persuasion or background, who find themselves in crisis due to an unplanned pregnancy.


Crisis, in this situation means having no support from any other persons, being under extreme pressure to make decisions, and in distress which may arise from many isssues such as poverty, abandonment, domestic violence, homelessness, family and relationship problems, drug and alcohol dependency, miscarriage and post abortion grief etc.


The aim of Pregnancy Assistance is to help provide relief from poverty, distress misfortune, destitution and helplessness in relation to pregnant women and girls who find themselves in these difficult circumstances.


The organisation will aim to uphold Catholic ethical teaching on the sacredness and value of every human life, primarily by our loving support and care for women distressed by pregnancy.
