I am so blessed to be on the Board of Directors for Choices Pregnancy Services. The staff and volunteers are professional, compassionate and truly care about the clients that they serve. Choices offers an array of services from ultrasounds and STD testing to counseling. The group of staff and volunteers are dedicated and hard working. The love and compassion is felt immediately when you walk into one of the clinics or on to one of the mobile clinics! They go above and beyond to provide exceptional service and care to each and every client.

Choices has let me experience Gods grace and love by being called to serve there. I am amazed by the stories of young women and men and the love, wisdom and care provided to them by the staff and volunteers of Choices. The impact that is made in the lives of people by sharing the Good News of Jesus and His love has been life changing for me.

I have been a supporter of this nonprofit for many years. This place is a safe place for people working through the issue of a nonplanned pregnancy. It is a place where love and understanding are paramount for clients and their devotion to walking through these situations with their clients is second to none. The people involved are committed to not only the preservation of the lives of the babies, but of helping with the clients with the mental as well as the practical aspects of walking through these situations with true love and care. They not only help with the emotional side of this issue but also provide for the practical side by providing clothing, formula, and other essential items to make caring for a baby easier. When you walk through the doors of the facility, you feel a sense of peace of love in the air.

I want to share about a young woman I know who received services at Choices. This young lady grew up in a home that was full of chaos and, at 15, became aware of an unplanned pregnancy. When she entered the center, they welcomed her without judgment. They spoke with her about adoption options and offered help with her baby, should she choose to raise him. They followed through on all their promises. They offered her credits toward baby clothes and formula. Her little boy, whom she chose to raise, has now graduated high school and she continues to sing Choices' praises for their support. They take very seriously all monies donated and are never wasteful. What a gift to these communities in the West part of Pittsburgh and in other parts of the city with the Mobile Ultrasound.

I was looking for a place to donate new baby items and discovered Choices Pregnancy Services located in Coraopolis. When my husband and I dropped off the items we knew we entered a special place. The atmosphere is so inviting, and the people who work there are consistently and genuinely full of life, joy, and respect. I was so moved by the staff and the professionalism with which they provide such great, free services, that I decided to volunteer regularly with them. I have witnessed the respect, care, compassion, and professionalism with which the Choices staff and volunteers treat each and every client, and it inspires me each time I'm at the center. The clients, who are often in very difficult situations, receive the top care from people who genuinely desire and support their very best, most abundant life. Contrary to what the mainstream media is portraying about such nonprofit organizations, Choices proves that this center is as pro-woman as a place can get (not to mention pro-man, pro-child, and pro-community!). Come in and see for yourself that these people are the real deal, that the services are top-quality, and that the hope of even greater things to come is a very real possibility for all clients.

This is a great way to be proactive when it comes to being "pro-life." I appreciate all that Choices Pregnancy Services does and I think it's safe to support this organization and know you are being part of something good.

Choices is a True Ministry focused on serving and protecting the most vulnerable members of our community and providing supports to families. They are not just pro-birth but are genuine pro-life by the way they wrap children and families in layers of love, care and assistance. I highly recommend this organization, and Western PA is blessed to have their amazing, dedicated staff who daily perform incredible work. Your investment in this ministry yields a priceless return.

I can say nothing but good things about Choices Pregnancy Services in Coraopolis and Aliquippa. My husband and I have participated in their fundraising efforts for many years and have seen their success in supporting women and girls at stressful times in their lives. Choices offers a listening ear to these women and girls to hear their stories and then gives them options as well as the necessary support to help them make wise decisions. They are gentle, caring and loving as they minister. You will be blessed by being a part of this great organization whether as a client or fund raising participant.

A great organization that I am more than happy to support. They keep in constant communication about what is going on with their services and how you can help from simply praying to getting involved through volunteering. Choices welcomes everyone, no matter their situation- no judgement, just support. What a great way to show God's love!

I am a volunteer RN at the center and it is absolutely the most amazing place I have ever had the privilege of working at. It is such a blessing to be a part of a place where every client is welcomed and loved and cared for with the utmost respect. The clients themselves tell us they love to come there because everyone is so nice and there is no judgement. It is wonderful to see clients bring their friends back too because they know they'll be helped. And how wonderful to see God so at work there helping women choose life for their babies.

Choices makes our community better! Through education, real support, and compassionate, personalized health care this NPO is offering something intangible to our clients....HOPE! When clients leave they are empowered by the knowledge, care and love they have received. As a volunteer, numerous times I have heard statements from clients similar to these...
"May I leave a donation? What you all are doing is great." "I felt so comfortable...no one judged me." "I love it here...or I love (insert name...client advocate)."

Many of the clients will stop by months later to thank Choices staff & volunteers for being there for them through tough times. And as a volunteer, I feel very blessed to be given the opportunity to work with those that come through our doors. Maybe tomorrow, someone I love will need the help provided through Choices (as they have in the past). I will continue to support Choices...because people need help and hope.

I began helping Choices several years ago by performing Sonograms on clients who came through their doors. I had never experienced anything like what takes place there, having worked in hospitals and Drs. offices all my life. The clients come from every walk of life, some needing more help than others. The love shown to them was indescribable and so genuine while fighting off the evil befalling them. There are so many ways Choices offers help and I know the clients appreciate and feel loved by reading their exit forms. I will always support Choices for what they stand for, for what the do and for what they strive to do. Professionally they excel as well.

Last fall I got involved with a committee at church. Choices was one of our organizations we contribute to. Then their Director, Keri spoke at church. After some phone calls and prayers I signed up to volunteer. Training and working with this team has been a blessing in so many ways. The knowledge of what Choices offers and the Lord's work that's done there is gratifying. After nine months, I have seen the Lord work in many ways. The excellent staff, training and interacting with those in need have enhanced my ability to do Gods work.

I am a physician practicing general medicine in the Pittsburgh area and I have been serving on the board of "Choices Pregnancy Services" for the past 5 years and as Medical Director for the past year. I must say that God opened up all whole new world for me by giving me the opportunity to serve humbly at this awesome center. The strength of the faith and the humility of my fellow board members is truly remarkable. What also impressed me was the absolutely unconditional love and non-judgmental attitude of the active staff and volunteers who serve at the center and on the Mobile Unit.

I've never met a group of people (employees and volunteers) that are so committed to a cause. The passion and love they all share for men and women experiencing the stress of an unplanned pregnancy is inspiring. An organization like this is only as effective as the people, and the people associated with Choices are more valuable than any building or endowment.

It is amazing what this NPO does with such little resources. Choices does such a good job of mixing good stewardship and maintaining an amazing group of volunteers and supporters. Every time I contribute, I know my money is going to go a long way towards helping to change and save lives!
