Welcome to Living Alternatives

Welcome to Living Alternatives

Whether you are here to help or to find help, we are glad you’re here!

Pregnancy for a single girl brings, at the very least, disruption into her life, and often into the lives of those close to her. For some, it can bring devastation that leaves her feeling trapped or abandoned. For others, it may give the sense of excitement and significance. In either case, her life changes in an instant. Her hopes and plans for the future become confusing. Even the best of family and friends may not have all the answers. Preparing for motherhood and parenting (or adoption) requires loving support and practical planning. We are here to help.

Since 1982, it has been our joy to offer hope and new life to women, children, and families. Beginning as an outreach to those experiencing unplanned pregnancy, we’ve grown into an organization made of six distinct areas of ministry which facilitates forming loving families and rebuilding broken families through compassion, care, and counsel.
