Auxiliary History

In 1974, the League established its first center to serve pregnant women . This center, the Pregnancy Help Center (PHC) of San Gabriel Valley, was located at St. Philip the Apostle Church in Pasadena. Initially, the Center provided a hotline and counseling. Today, the PHC of San Gabriel Valley is located in the City of Alhambra and it functions with a clinic license from the California Department of Health Services. As a clinic, it offers pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, counseling, referrals, material assistance and hotline services. The PHC of San Gabriel Valley has its own nonprofit standing but remains an affiliate member of the Right To Life League. To date, the League has opened more than a dozen centers throughout southern California and maintains its headquarters on North Lake Avenue in Pasadena.

In 1981, a group of women met to discuss opportunities of support for the San Gabriel Valley Center . This group founded the San Gabriel Valley Auxiliary of the Right to Life League with the purpose of raising monies to specifically support the Pregnancy Help Center of San Gabriel Valley.

Known today as the Auxiliary of the PHC of San Gabriel Valley, this group raises a substantial percentage of funds necessary for the operation of the Center through the Mother’s Day Benefit and Monthly Giving. The Auxiliary also offers its more than 300 members opportunities for volunteerism with women who share the pro-life philosophy.
