Our Mission

Empower.Equip.Encourage.

Options Pregnancy Centre offers free and confidential support to young women, young men, and families as they navigate unplanned pregnancy. Our vision is to care specifically for the whole woman: physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. It is also to recognize
the role fathers and families play within the reality of unplanned pregnancy.

 

A three tiered holistic approach empowers each woman to understand her personal value, to make informed decisions about her sexual and reproductive health, and to meet the needs of her family through personal development. 

Our services are listed below each sector of focus, and further defined below..
