Taking Services to the Twin Counties and Beyond
The primary focus of Your Choice Resource Center is to bring the good news of Jesus Christ in both word and action. Jesus came to earth to bring abundant life and to serve. We seek to follow this model by offering pregnancy testing, STD testing, and Limited Ultrasound at no cost. In 2015, at our brick and mortar location, we documented 40 babies saved from abortion, the same year that abortion providers documented 366 lives lost to abortion by residents of the Twin Counties. How many of those babies may have been given a chance at life had YCRC been able to reach them with our Mobile Unit?
Those who are in crisis due to an unplanned pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease need ANSWERS and need HOPE. Our mobile ministry goal is to reach 1,000 people each year with the options, resources, and hope that they need to be empowered to choose life and understand how much God values them and their babies.

- On college campuses
- At special events

Going mobile allows us to extend the mission of the Center into the community meeting the needs of women and men where they are. Having a life-saving vehicle on the streets and parked at college campuses, other community ministries, and churches is and will make a critical impact on many lives in the Twin Counties and surrounding communities.

Over half of all pregnancies in North Carolina are unplanned. The latest statistics show that 366 of those pregnancies ended in abortion for residents of the twin counties. Our Stork Bus allows us to reach women and men that may never have heard of a pregnancy help center, or the resources we have to offer. Our goal is to offer easy access of our support services to women who are vulnerable to having an abortion, to educate them about their options, and to expose them to the truth about the value of life through an ultrasound image.
The Twin Counties rank in the top 20 of the 100 counties in North Carolina for the number of new sexually transmitted disease cases per year. Edgecombe Country is 3rd in the state for HIV cases and 2nd for cases of Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. Our mobile unit will allow us to offer HIV/STD testing to women and men which will afford us the opportunity to share abstinence education and the hope of God’s redemption through Jesus. We will be able to park our Stork Bus on college campuses, parks, churches, area ministries and events. Source: www.guttmacher.org/pubs/sfaa/north_carolina.html
