Merry Christmas from the Atwell team!

We empower women and men through hope, compassion, and information.

Our Values

Professionalism

We are proven professionals in all the areas of services we
offer. Clients initially meet with registered nurses and we have a team of medical
doctors and health care professionals available for consultation when necessary.

Dignity and Non-discrimination

We value the inherent dignity of every human
being, believing each person is made in the image of God and is loved by God. We do not discriminate based on gender, race, ability, age, sexual-orientation, and/or religion. All are welcome.

Education and Information

We believe whole education and information are vital components in critical thinking and decision making. Education empowers and strengthens those who recieve it.

 

Safety

Atwell values the safety of each client who comes to Atwell Centre. Confidentiality and non-judgement are two of our main priorities for each client.

 

Choice

Freedom of choice is a core Canadian principle.  Atwell values the right of individuals to make decisions about pregnancy and sexual health without shame, judgement or embarrassment.

Faith

Atwell works in diverse communities and values and respects each life that we have the privilege to serve across all our programs. As a Christian agency, we extend the same posture of love, compassion, and truth to all our clients in the same manner as Jesus’ interaction with Fatima, the Samaritan woman “at the well”.

Hope

We believe hope is powerful, and we desire that each person who comes to Atwell Centre finds a renewed sense of hope. Whether facing an unexpected pregnancy, an STI Test, post-abortion reality, or uncertainty around sexual health, our clients are not alone.

ABOUT US

Atwell Centre is a Christian Community Health Agency which offers holistic healthcare and programs, partnering with local public health units and community organizations. Our medical clinic offers pregnancy assessment through Point of Care Ultrasounds (P.O.CU.S.) pregnancy options counselling, and STI testing and treatment. Atwell also offers post-abortion support and stabilization counselling. We are committed to excellent patient care delivered by regulated and licensed professionals in a safe and supported environment. Additionally, Atwell’s S.H.A.R.E. Program develops critical thinking skills in our youth, parents and community around healthy relationships and sexuality.

Mission

Our mission is to assist women and men facing unexpected pregnancies and post-abortion realities. We provide education, information, support and give practical assistance to women and their partners as they face important decisions about their pregnancy and sexual health.

Vision

A society where no one has to face an unexpected pregnancy, sexual health decisions and post-abortion experiences alone.

The History of the Atwell Centre

It started with an Idea

2012

Atwell started with an idea that no woman or couple should have to face an unexpected pregnancy alone. When surveying the greater GTA, the steering committee of Atwell noticed that there was a need for a Pregnancy Care Centre in both Hamilton and Halton. The steering committee was drawn to starting its first location in Hamilton, because of the large university and college presence; always intending to open a satellite location in Halton.
