Description
Kawartha Lakes Pregnancy Centre (Lindsay Crisis Pregnancy Centre) was closed to person-to-person contact from the beginning, but continued to offer services as they could.

Services included care packages by appointment once a week, which included unopened items that could be wiped down, and prenatal and postnatal education online, free pregnancy tests by appointment, and accepting donations on unused, unopened items.

They were not giving out second-hand clothing and equipment, which would have been a normal part of their service.

For staffing, the Centre tried to have one person in-office and all others working from home. Meetings were conducted using Zoom.

Funding for the centre is typically provided by churches and supporting individuals. However, the centre's Board was investigating some government programs offered due to the pandemic.
