If you are pregnant you have three choices...
  1. Carry the pregnancy to term and parent the baby.
  2. Carry the pregnancy to term and place the baby for adoption.
  3. Have an abortion.

Parenting
Parenting is one of the most rewarding experiences in life and also one of the most challenging. Making the choice to parent a child is not always easy.

You may be asking yourself…
    ~ Can I parent and still achieve my educational goals?
    ~ How will I find housing and daycare?
    ~ What resources are available in the community to help me?

We can help… by providing parenting and pregnancy literature, material services and referrals to parenting classes and other supportive community agencies.

Adoption
Sometimes adoption is the best option for you and your baby.

You may be thinking…
    ~ I’m too young to be a parent.
    ~ How can I care for a baby ? I can't even care for myself!
    ~ I don’t want an abortion, but I don’t know much about adoption, Where do I start?
 
You should know that…
    ~ You have many adoption options.
    ~ You are in control of the process.
    ~ You can still be involved in your child's life.
    ~ There may be financial assistance available to you.

We can help...by providing information on all aspects of adoption and referrals to reputable adoption agencies.

Abortion
Parenting is one of the most rewarding experiences in life and also one of the most challenging. Making the choice to parent a child is not always easy.

If you are thinking about finding an abortion clinic it is important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure.

What type will you have? What are the risk.

You may feel that abortion is your only option if...
    ~ Your boyfriend or family is pressuring you to abort. 
    ~ You don’t feel ready to parent.
    ~ You are embarrassed for anyone to know you are pregnant.

You may be asking yourself...
    ~ Am I really pregnant?
    ~ How far along am I?
    ~ What kind of abortion will I need?
    ~ What are the abortion risks?

We can help... By providing you with answers to your questions through our free and confidential pregnancy test.
