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.
Fatherheart is a protected environment where young women find loving house parents and staff who support them emotionally and spiritually through their pregnancies.
The Pregnancy Resource Center offers free pregnancy tests and supportive help to women facing the first moment of a positive pregnancy test.
The Loving Alternative adoption ministry provides individual counseling and compassionate friendship for mothers that chooses adoption or is considering it.
In the School of New Beginnings, we learn how to understand the Bible and learn to see how God reveals himself even today.
The Building Blocks program offers practical help to parents that encourages and renews their hope.
The FORthe1 program seeks Christian families who will respond to orphans and children in foster care.
The KEEPS Boutique offers teenage girls, currently living in foster care, a fun shopping experience.
