Our History


Our humble beginnings started in 1999 when a teenager found herself in the uncertainty of an umplanned pregnancy. Her friend, Amy Putnam, became our founder when she reached out to Fallbrook local, Dr. Michael Forrester. Dr. Forrester offered an officed that allowed Amy to bring compassionate women into her friend's life to listen without judgement and allow her friend to sort through options. Eventually the small support group grew into Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center (FPRC) was born. Over the past 19+ years, we've been true to our mission as we welcomed over 550 babies into the community.

Over the years FPRC moved as it matured and grew, always renting our space that put us at the mercy of our landlords. In 2014 the FPRC Board of Directors (BOD) determined that FPRC needed to own a building that allowed us to offer all the services a medical center could offer and to proceed with discovering the process of medical conversion. In October 2018, we moved into what we call “Our Home on Hawthorne” at 125 E Hawthorne, which is a completely renovated Police Station that provides us ample room to grow our programs. We also own a small building adjacent to our center that is our GED classroom. Waiting on God for these amazing tools of ministry was well worth it. Our journey grew our faith as we saw God extend His grace through difficult moves as we transitioned and He touched generous hearts to allow us to do what seemed impossible. It is true that if you build it, they will come! God will bring them.

On July 31, 2020 Hope Clinic for Women received our license from the State of Califonia to open as a primary care medical clinic in the Fallbrook Community. We now partner medical services with compassion pregnancy care support.
