Closure due to decrease in funding
The new year brings new happenings with Smoky Mountain Pregnancy Care Center (SMPCC). The organization opened its doors as a pregnancy resource center in 2001. In 2003, the Board of Directors began the process of converting the resource center into a medical clinic to provide free pregnancy tests and limited ultrasounds. It has been operating as a medical center since that time. In 2004, the board made the expansion to Cullowhee to serve the population that has the most abortions; college aged women and men. In addition to free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, SMPCC’s medical offices provide classes on various topics concerning pregnancy, childrearing, and life skills.
