Join our Team
Every person is created in the Image of God. At First Image, we are working to create places in greater Portland where mothers and fathers can find a way forward to give abundant life to their children.
At our Ava Health Clinics (formerly PRC), we do that through critical medical services, education and by supporting the spiritual, social, and practical needs of people facing unsupported pregnancy.
Our Headquarters staff work to provide program and administrative support, fundraising, and direction for the ministry as a whole.

What our Employees Say
“My favorite part about working at First Image, and more specifically Ava Health, is the friendly environment. Everyone is super nice to work with, and it is such a joy to work alongside my sisters in Christ! I love that I can walk into work and the first thing we do in the morning is take time to pray for the day, each other, and our clients that we are going to see. It sets the stage for a good day, and even at the difficult times we know God has His hand on the situation because we already gave the day to Him. As a working mom, I also love the hours – you can’t beat normal business hours especially as a nurse!
As far as the work that we do, it is a real blessing to serve our clients the way we do. It is very fulfilling work, especially when we get to see how our services have impacted the lives of our clients. Supporting someone through an unsupported pregnancy, giving a couple their first ultrasound, or connecting a pregnant mother to helpful resources… These are all examples of things we get to do every day!”
Working for First Image is like working with a family—a team that cares so deeply for one another. It’s such a comfort to know that someone will always have your back. I love working in the center because it gives me the opportunity to meet with women face-to-face: I get to sit with them and hear their stories and help them find a way forward. It has given me a whole new perspective on the challenges women are facing. It cultivates compassion that has hands and feet.
My time working in the center has resulted in more growth than I ever thought possible. You see lives change, and it changes you. Even after 3+ years on staff, every workday still feels like a privilege. I am so grateful God brought me to this place, where I get to witness His grace and hope transform and save lives. It’s deeply rewarding work. The miracles we see make even the hardest days worth it.
