Click here for a full list of services we provide.

We are dedicated to providing a warm and safe environment without regard to age, race, income, religious affiliation or other circumstances. You will be treated with kindness and compassion and you may leave the Center whenever you wish.

Your story will be listened to with compassion, respect and courtesy, and without judgment, ridicule, or rejection. You will not be pressured in any way and you may discuss your situation at your own pace, sharing only that information with which you are comfortable.

You have the right to withhold any information you do not want to share with support staff. All information shared will be held in strict and absolute confidence, except in rare circumstances when prohibited by law which will be explained to you if applicable to your situation.

You will receive accurate information about pregnancy, fetal development, life-style issues, adoption, abortion, and other related concerns. Informed Choices does not provide abortions or referrals for abortion, but we are committed to offering accurate information about abortion procedures and risks. You may refuse any information you do not wish to receive. You will receive honest and open answers to your questions.

You will be directed to other appropriate resources, including adoption agencies if you desire, that can support you in your time of crisis and supply you with additional help and information. You will be given on-going support, consistent with your needs, during your pregnancy and after your baby is born.

By completing free parenting classes with us you will earn points that may be redeemed for resources such as diapers, baby formula, clothing, and supplies, etc., to assist you in caring for your baby.
