Malama Pregnancy Center

Malama Pregnancy Center (MPC) is a new non-profit pregnancy resource center located in the heart of Wailuku Town.  We provide help and hope to anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy. MPC offers free pregnancy tests, options counseling on pregnancy and choices, PACE Classes (Post Abortion Counseling Education), Life Skill Classes, and practical and emotional support. We do refer to outside resources and other agencies best suited to the needs of the individual. We  also help with Mom and baby essentials. All services are free and strictly confidential.

Malama Pregnancy Center was founded by the Executive Director and her husband, in partnership with other concerned members in the Maui community. They recognized the need for the emotional support crucial to families facing these life-changing and important decisions. Whether struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, the loss of an infant, or an unexpected miscarriage, MPC will provide counsel and support from extensively trained Peer Counselors. Hospitals and medical offices are not always equipped to provide these services to the women and families of Maui. 

Currently, our funding is provided by private donors in the community. Donations are always welcome and tax deductible. If you would like to donate to MPC, you may do so online at www.mpcmaui.org or by phone.  You might consider becoming a volunteer, hosting a baby shower or donating items for our Mom and Baby Resource Center.

Hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9am to 5pm. Walk-ins are welcome.  Please call 808-280-5810.  or visit our website at: www.mpcmaui.org,  e-mail us at malamapregnancycenter@gmail.com and/or follow us on facebook and twitter.

Friends of Malama Pregnancy Center would like to invite you to Our ParTEA.  It is our 2nd Annual Fundraiser to benefit MPC on Sunday, November 8th from 3pm to 5pm at the Maui Beach Hotel in Kahului. Please join us for gourmet desserts, provided by the UH Maui’s Culinary Institute, fine teas, a silent auction, hat contest, and a table-setting contest.  Admission is free and all are welcome. 

Melissa Ohden will be the keynote speaker sharing her remarkable story of how she survived a failed saline abortion in 1977.  She has earned a Masters Degree in Social Work, and works in the fields of substance abuse, mental health, domestic violence, sexual assault counseling, and child welfare.  She is fulfilling the purpose that she believes God set out for her by saving her from certain death.  She is truly a voice for the voiceless.

We have fliers available if you would like to help us spread the word by making them available to your circle of friends or at your business.  We hope you can join us on November 8th to help us further support our community.
