About Hart Life

Pregnancy Care Center began in 1987 as a branch of Toccoa Life. John and Barbara Mattison established nine pregnancy centers in the Northeast Georgia communities during that time. Hart Life was incorporated as an independent organization in 2012. Hart Life has been honored to serve our community by helping women, men and families facing a crisis related to pregnancy.

Hart Life is a non-profit charitable organization which serves our community by providing hope, healing and help. Hart Life’s mission is to compassionately engage, educate and inspire our community with the truth regarding sexual integrity and the value of human life.

All of our services are at no cost and are completely confidential. Our hope is that when a client walks through our doors, they will find open arms, a listening ear, and wise counsel.

Host a Diaper/Baby Shower

Diapers are the most requested item at the Pregnancy Center. Diapers (sizes,3,4,5,& 6) are always needed. Diaper wipes are in high demand too and can be included in the collection. You can simply start a collection within your church, neighborhood, family, small group, school or circle of friends.  A diaper drive, no matter how large or small, helps to fill an immediate need. Every diaper counts!

Host a baby shower or collect items that are needed for our baby boutique. Give us a call to find out what items are needed. All items provided in our baby boutique come from donations from our community. We are counting on your help!

Ongoing – Participate in our Baby Bottle Fundraiser

An easy and fun way for anyone to help save lives and protect futures is by participating in our Baby Bottle Fundraiser. Church congregations, Sunday School classes, vacation bible school, youth groups and organizations can all get involved.

We provide empty baby bottles and information to hand out. We will also provide a speaker to speak to your group. Anyone can pick up a bottle and fill it with coins, cash and checks… and believe us – IT ADDS UP!

The campaign runs between 4-6 weeks and can be done at anytime. Call us at 706-376-1700 to pick up your bottles and colorful post card inserts for your bulletins, if needed. Simply fill the bottles with cash, coins or checks, and return the bottles to the Center.


Donate Time

Time is the most meaningful gift you can give. 

Our doors stay open to hurting women because of people like you. Some choose to serve as client advocates, or work in the office. Others prefer to work behind the scenes, washing clothes for the Baby Boutique, working in the care closet or providing pro bono services such as IT or yard work. 

If you are considering donating your time to the clients of Hart Life Pregnancy Care Center, please contact us. Whether you give many hours or a few, your investment is valued. We would be thrilled to have you join us. Give us a call to find what volunteer opportunities are available.
