Explore Elmhurst Express! The Elmhurst trolley runs through the summer, June 3 through September 18. Fridays (6 – 11 pm), Saturdays (noon -11:30 pm) and Sundays (noon – 5 pm). Riders can enter to win weekly prizes through a citywide sweepstakes. What fun!

Clearly, Elmhurst is a caring community with activities and services for families and individuals of all ages. That’s one reason we have been glad to bring our Avenue Women’s Center free pregnancy clinic to the community.

A free pregnancy test in Elmhurst is now available to women of all ages and any family background at Avenue Women’s Center. “Care” is our commitment to bring caring, compassionate, confidential service to all of our clients. Whatever her situation, a woman who is facing an unintended pregnancy is in need of support. An accurate, free pregnancy test in Elmhurst at Avenue Women’s Center can resolve her fears and can provide information about the options that are available to her.

You may spot our Elmhurst pregnancy testing center, located at 210 N. York Street, Suite 103, near Fruitful Yield or Berkshire Hathaway, if you are attending one of the many community events this summer. The clinic is open 16 hours each week. If you might benefit from a free pregnancy test in Elmhurst… or one of our other clinic locations in Glen Ellyn, Naperville, or Wood Dale… know that we are often able to help with same-day appointments – and results! Please contact us. We look forward to serving you.
