Mission: Pregnancy choices is a christian ministry caring for those touched by unplanned pregnancy by providing options and resources that promote life.

Programs: The pregnancy resources program offers pregnancy testing, pregnancy options education and limited obstetrical ultrasound. Pregnancy test appointments are facilitated one-on-one by trained crisis pregnancy coaches and include education that promotes life-giving decisions and healthy lifestyles. Coaches offer bibles, spiritual discussions, and prayer to clients who desire them. In addition, issues such as housing, education, job training, medical care, future goals, family dynamics, healthy relationships, emotional distress, etc. Are discussed with clients. After a client's initial visit and again after her potential delivery date, she receives a personalized follow-up from her crisis pregnancy coach. A licensed medical director oversees the medical team providing limited obstetrical ultrasounds on women whose pregnancy test is positive.
