The facility, the Arkansas Pregnancy Resource Center (APRC), is in Little Rock. The Center's director, Nicole Lashbrook, describes what happened.

"On May 20 we suffered loss from a fire – an accidental fire due to a roofer – and our building was completely destroyed," she shares. "The community rallied and provided us some temporary office space at a local church here until we established a new location back across from the [local] abortion facility [Little Rock Family Planning Services]."

APRC had been at the site for a decade until the fire wiped them completely out. "We were just tenants in the building that was on fire so we only had renters insurance," Lashbrook continues. "An estimated figure right now for that would be about $125,000 just to replace what we had in the building."

In the interim, women with a problem pregnancy haven't been without services because a mobile facility provided through Save the Stork – which had already been in use – doubled its efforts to help women make a decision for life for their preborn child.

The new building will be ready for occupancy in October – located across from the state's only remaining abortuary.
