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.

I have had the amazing privilege of working for Choices for nearly ten years now. Under Keri and the Board’s direction I have been part of a growing ministry that truly cares about each and every person the walks through the Center’s doors or steps onto one of the Mobile clinics. Every day the staff and volunteers make a commitment to encourage, equip and educate the men and women in the communities we serve, but they also share the love of Jesus Christ.

I so love this ministry! My husband is a Pastor and when he facing the question of abortion due to an unplanned pregnancy OR a medical situation, we have always been able to connect Keri or another staff member with the families to come alongside of them and offer them support, directions, and answers. Having the ability to see your unplanned child on an ultrasound can bring life to reality for those pondering the termination of their pregnancies. This organization does a tremendous work throughout the Pittsburgh Region!

As a former employee and volunteer, and current supporter of Choices, I know that they strive to handle their finances wisely, deeply love their clients and staff, and seek the good of the communities of which they are a part. They are not focused on numbers or making a profit, but genuinely want what is best for each person who walks through their doors. Unlike many other service providers these days, they spend much needed time with each client and invest their hearts in the lives of people who need it most.

I have been involved with Choices for over 20 years as a donor and supporter. I've been involved with supporting of the sanctity of life my whole life. I feel a call to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. I also feel strongly that those who are expecting a baby and have questions can have a place to go that will give them truthful answers about life and give them the love and support they need especially if they are facing medical, spiritual, financial or other challenges in their pregnancy. Choices Pregnancy Services does such a fantastic job helping others and getting out the truth about the sacredness of life. Their annual banquet is such a highlight of my year. Hearing testimonies from people who, because of Choices, have chosen life over death, inspires me and blesses me. Hearing statistics about how many have been reached and helped makes me want to give to and tell others of the important work Choices is doing in our community. I have also volunteered at their offices and found all their staff so professional and friendly. Choices is truly an organization to be proud of. I hope and pray they will grow and influence many others in the years to come!

A wonderful place that provides support and care to women in need. I donate to them as much as I can through direct donations and AmazonSmiles because their mission is motivated by so much love and kindness. They celebrate every woman and every child. With so much conflict and difficulty in society today, I believe Choices Pregnancy gives women a positive and affirming place to turn to at what can be a difficult time in their lives.

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.

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.

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 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.

Choices Pregnancy Center is an organization whose leaders, staff, volunteers, and speakers add value to others with love, support, education, understanding, and wisdom . The numerous life changing stories have brought many tears to my eyes as well as hope in humanity. Many young men and women who have chosen to choose life for their children have witnessed to others the truly amazing gift that God has given them, the gift of life. These young families have come to understand that they are not being judged, they are being loved and are learning that faith, love, and hope are the building blocks in their lives. God makes no mistakes for these children who were planned will someday be great leaders and the credit goes to the Choices Pregnancy Centers for being so bold and selfless to share how important these children are to all of us. This organization is truly blessed with special people!

I am a physician assistant who works in Gynecology, that volunteers at Choices twice a month. I have never been more impressed with the desire and hearts these people have to serve others with such compassion! Unlike our office where you have limited time with patients, Choices gives every client the time they need. There is no pressure, and clients feel safe there. They know these people truly want to help them and have their best interest at heart. I have only been there for about a year now, but I have seen alot of lives impacted in that short time frame for the better. This is the way medicine is supposed to be, not impersonal visits with limits on time or what can be offered based on insurances or cost...it should be all about the patient. Choices has made me a better practitioner, and more aware to the need of these types of facilities. So many women and girls are in need the information and services offered here! I am proud to be a part of it!

The staff and volunteers at Choices Pregnancy Services are extremely sensitive to the women who come to them for help. As I toured the facility, I noticed how protective they were of their client's privacy, yet they had gentle and genuine smiles for everyone. The services they offer are not only private and non-judgmental but free! A pregnant woman can get a free sonogram, no insurance needed. The offer a wide variety of services including a mobile clinic to reach neighborhoods that are not close to the center. Choices Pregnancy Services offer services beyond determining if a woman is pregnant. I highly recommend contacting them with any and all questions. You will be important to them and they would love to hear from you!

I have been a volunteer for administrative support at Choices Pregnancy Services once a week for the past nine years. Each Monday I am amazed at the consistent loving support of the employees for each client that enters the doors. I am in charge of tabulating the reviews that each client fills out after an appointment. The reviews are always glowing! Each client is overwhelmed by the caring compassionate non-judgmental way that they were treated. There is no doubt that Choices Pregnancy Services should be considered as a "GREAT" non-profit.

We have supported pregnancy centers for many years now. As we support Choices we appreciate what they offer to clients. It is not only about saving the life of a pre-born baby, they are genuine in their care for all the clients. They strive to educate clients on making better choices for themselves. They take seriously their charge to be the hands and feet of God. They offer educational services, material assistance, support groups, men's groups as well as pregnancy testing, ultrasounds and STD testing. All for no charge to the clients. Choices is a loving and non judgmental environment for all who pass through their doors.

Thirty five years after choosing abortion I received healing and was set free through the Forgiven and Set Free Bible Study at Choices. I can honestly say that my life has changed in ways that I never could have imagined. For the first time in my life I am free of the guilt that abortion brings. The facilitators were very loving, supportive and non-judgmental. I would highly recommend Choices for women contemplating abortion as well as for women who have had an abortion.

I have brought teens/young adults in to utilize pregnancy testing and std testing. The environment is non-threatening and comfortable: SO important for people in an uncomfortable situation. I am so glad to have a place like this to bring people to, as I found myself in this situation as a teen and didn't know such places existed...unfortunately I turned to a very cold environment for help instead. Choices is very professional yet down to earth and resourceful all in one. They have partnered with Local Silver Ring Thing events along with their fundraiser a and all around is a wonderful asset for our community.

I know of no other Christian organizations that has such good communication with their praying supporters. When I get an e-mail requesting prayer for a couple who are in the office at that very moment - I'm privileged to be able to stop and lift that situation up to the Lord. Often, a follow-up is sent from Choices and I have an update on the decisions or how to continue to pray. I feel so close to those at the center and look forward to this mutual ministry in the days ahead.
