SERVICES WE OFFER
Options for Women is a non-profit Pregnancy Support Center that is committed to loving and helping
women who face the decisions and challenges of unplanned pregnancy. Options is an Oasis from crisis
where women and their partners can receive free medical services, including pregnancy navigation,
STD screening, and a wide variety of support to fit each individual client. All of our services are free
with no strings attached. Call or Text to schedule an appointment.
TESTING & SCREENING
Options’ concrete and immediate aid begins with a consultation with a Registered Nurse and Social Worker. Free pregnancy testing and verification are necessary to access early prenatal care and financial service referrals. A free second visit ultrasound is helpful to women who can use the medical scan to process their pregnancy decision. Throughout pregnancy, Options offers ongoing support at a variety of levels as requested by our clients. Free STD screening and treatment for women and men age 29 and younger for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia is available on Tuesdays by appointment.
COUNSELING & SUPPORT: Our Pledge to You
Clients are always treated with kindness, compassion and genuine concern for their unique set of circumstances. As a faith based agency, Options is dedicated to core Christian values that compel us to love and respect each individual who seeks our services. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of care towards our pregnant clients and their partners.
Options is committed to providing medically accurate information.
Options is committed to absolute integrity in its dealings with those facing unplanned pregnancies, its supporters, its vendors, its staff, its health partners and the community at large. Our goal is to build trust by providing promised information and timely services. We will never compromise the truth and we will always advocate for the welfare of our clients.
Options does not recommend, provide, or refer for abortion. We will, however, fairly and accurately review all of your choices as part of your decision making process.

We collect and distribute maternity donations to those mothers who need them most. We urge those who are interested in helping us with our mission to donate new or gently used maternity clothes to aide in support of single and at-risk mothers.
Options accepts donations of new infant clothes from newborn sizes up to 24 months and new baby items that may include: towels, crib sheets, blankets, grooming items, bottles, infant formula, diapers, small toys, books, rattles, pacifiers, socks, hats, mittens, gloves, etc to present to our clients in their layette baskets after they deliver their babies.
Ways You Can Help:
Your church or community group can host a Baby Shower for Options to donate infant items or perhaps a Baby Bump Shower to collect and donate new maternity clothes on behalf of our clients who cannot afford to buy these items for themselves or their babies. Our maternity clothes and layette ministry is a great way to share God’s love. Offering our clients new maternity clothes, baby clothes and maternity items are one small way that we communicate how special and valued they really are.
