Who we are

Women’s Clinic of the Antelope Valley (WCAV) has been serving the community since 1980. We are a non-profit, non-denominational, faith-based organization. WCAV offers crisis counseling services, material goods, pregnancy testing, ultrasounds and pregnancy support to more than 3,000 women each year in crisis situations. All services are provided free of charge and funding for the center and its services are funded solely through community events and individual donors.

A BRIEF HISTORY

The Right to Life League of Antelope Valley flourished in the late 1960s as an independent education organization whose purpose was to raise community awareness to the anti-life threats of abortion.

In 1977, a decision was made to affiliate with the Right to Life League of Southern California, the largest and oldest pro-life organization in California. At that time, the “Life Line” (a 24-hour crisis hotline for pregnancy related issues), was established, staffed solely by volunteers. In March 1980, as a result of much hard work and planning, WCAV opened its doors in the city of Lancaster. The Life Line volunteers now had a place to refer women calling with a crisis pregnancy where they would receive a free pregnancy test, lay counseling, and material assistance.

In March 2000, WCAV opened its second counseling center located in Palmdale at the site of what was once an abortion clinic. In June 2004, the Palmdale Center converted into a licensed free medical clinic providing pregnancy testing, lay counseling, and ultrasounds.

Unfortunately, in February 2011, due to lack of enough funding, we had to close the Lancaster Center. This was a difficult thing for us to do, but through partnership with Care Net, we are confident that Lancaster will continue to receive the services that are necessary to continue saving babies. And, this allows us to concentrate on the Palmdale Center where we see a growing need.
