Do I need an appointment?
Walk-ins are always welcome! However, we do ask that you arrive an hour and ½ before closing to allow time for your intake.
Can I bring a guest?
You may bring a guest with you for support. However, you will be meeting one-on-one with one of our Client Advocates for the first 30 minutes of your intake. During this time, your guests will remain in the waiting area.
What can I expect from my pregnancy intake appointment?
As Agape transitions towards offering additional medical services, your visit will begin with one of our Registered Nurses for an intake and to check your vital signs, measure your height/weight and perform your pregnancy test. These are lab-grade urine tests and the results will be available to you immediately. If the test is positive, the nurse will assess whether you qualify to have an ultrasound that day.
Next, you will have the opportunity to meet with one of Agape’s trained and compassionate Client Advocates who will provide you with information and resources available to you through Agape and with partners in the community. Before leaving, the nurse will provide you with additional health information specific to your circumstances.
How long will my appointment take?
This will depend on the service(s) that we provide to you. However, as a general rule, please allow for a full hour
How much does it cost?
All of Agape’s services are offered free of charge.
Will my appointment be kept confidential?
Yes, absolutely. Your privacy is very important to us. All of the information that you provide to us is kept completely confidential unless the law requires otherwise.
Do I need an ID?
Yes, Agape does require that you provide a valid photo ID (Driver’s License, school ID, etc.) in order to provide Proof of Pregnancy form. If you do not have an ID, you can receive all services except the Proof of Pregnancy Form.
What does ‘Agape’ mean?
Agape (pronounced agápē) is one of the several Greek words for love. Other types are phileo, or brotherly love, eros, romantic love, and storge, which is a love between family members.
Agape love is different. It is not a feeling; it’s a sacrificial love for the benefit of another without expecting anything in return. It is God’s unconditional love. This is the type of love our staff and volunteers strive to show everyone who walks through the doors at Agape Pregnancy Resource Center.
