About Obria

 

Mission Statement

Being led by God, we provide caring, high quality and comprehensive reproductive health services consistent with the inherent value of every person.

 

History

Obria began as a volunteer-run resource center to help women facing unplanned pregnancies and empower them with information they needed to make an informed decision about their pregnancy.

Today, Obria Medical Clinics of Southern California employ doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses to operate AAAHC-accredited and licensed health centers. Our services include pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STD testing and treatment, HIV testing, prenatal care, and well-woman exams.

Additionally, we offer free prenatal classes for expectant parents, health education, and community resource referrals to meet the immediate needs of our patients, many of whom are poor and lack access to high-quality healthcare.

 

Leadership and Support

Our organization relies on the generosity of supporters and volunteers who share our vision to offer women life-affirming healthcare in a culture that too often devalues life.

Our Board of Directors consists of men and women who have dedicated themselves to promoting our mission, and we are grateful for their continued support:
