In the spring of 2005, our founders, Joseph and Jane Dalton moved to Rolla. Already operating a national pro-life ministry, the Dalton’s quickly realized that they had moved to a college town with a Planned Parenthood and no medical pregnancy center. They began to have informational and planning meetings in their home with a group of concerned citizens. Many from this group became the board of directors and in early February of 2007 we opened our doors. Outgrowing our 10th Street location, in September of 2012 we moved our offices to our current location, 1210 E. State Route 72.
Over the years PRC became widely known as one of the most successful pregnancy centers in the Midwest, consistently operating at a 99.7% success rate and saving more than 3,500 babies from abortion. After our success became known, other communities reached out to us and, as a result, we helped in the founding of eleven additional pregnancy centers across the state. The centers in Bowling Green, Cape Girardeau, Hannibal, Houston, Jefferson City, Sikeston, St. Louis, Ste. Genevieve, Troy, Warrenton and Waynesville were launched with our assistance.
