About Us

Our Crisis Pregnancy Centres are dedicated to serving and supporting women struggling with an unplanned pregnancy.  We also provide help for women and men experiencing post abortion grief.

We are an outreach of the Christian Advocacy Society of Greater Vancouver (CAS) a non-profit agency providing support to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies, post abortion grief, domestic violence, and sexual assault.

CAS outreaches include the Burnaby Safe House, OnlineCare Canada, Crisis Pregnancy Centres of Vancouver and Burnaby, Post Abortion Community Services and Rape Victims Support Network.

In our 25 years of community service, we have assisted over 16,500 women.  All peer counselling services are free and confidential.
