about us


who we are

An unplanned pregnancy can be a fearful and lonely thing. Some difficult choices become serious considerations. We believe women have a right to know the truth regarding their options.

We provide a caring and confidential atmosphere. Clients meet with well-trained, dedicated, and understanding client advocates, equipped to help meet various needs.

We are also committed to creating awareness within the community of the pressures facing teens, women, and families with unplanned pregnancies. We develop co-laboring relationships with churches and emphasize reconciliation within the family and the church.
