In Prince George's County, one out of seven residents has no health insurance and one out of four pregnant women receives no prenatal care at all. But in two yellow houses in College Park, women get the care and social services they need. Pregnancy Aid Centers provides comprehensive women’s health care to low-income and uninsured women and adolescents. The only non-hospital perinatologist in Prince George’s County is on site to care for high risk pregnant women with diabetes and other medical risks, a service that is especially beneficial for those who are uninsured. Each month, nearly 50 healthy babies are born to women in the maternity care program, while adolescent outreach works to reduce the rate of unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Some 800 women and girls a year access pregnancy testing and options counseling; emergency food and clothing are also provided. The yellow houses in College Park welcomed nearly 3,800 patients last year and the caseload continues to grow. Your help means so much to so many.
