our mission

The House of Ruth Pregnancy Care Center is a Christian ministry dedicated to serving pregnant women and to protecting the lives of unborn children. Our goal is to demonstrate the love of Christ by assisting with emotional, spiritual, and physical needs, enabling women to make healthy, life-affirming choices throughout pregnancy and beyond.​


House of Ruth has deep roots in the Verde Valley. Founded in 1988, thousands of women and families' lives have been touched and changed by the ministry. Advocating for life of the unborn and strengthening families through loving support and education are the cornerstone of this ministry.

House of Ruth Pregnancy Care Center does not recommend, provide or refer for abortion or abortificatients.

We are committed to assisting women in carrying to term by providing emotional support and practical assistance. Through the provision of God’s people and the community at large, women may face the future and plan constructively for themselves and their babies.

The House of Ruth hopes to achieve this by creating awareness within the local community of the needs of pregnant women and the fact the abortion only compounds human needs, rather than resolve them.
