What we offer . . .
Limited Medical Services
Our Center has a qualified volunteer medical staff that is available for ultrasounds, pregnancy tests, and consultations. Below you will find some initial information on the medical services that our center provides.
Our center offers free pregnancy tests to confirm your pregnancy. We understand that a suspected and unplanned pregnancy can be frightening, and we desire to offer support during this uncertain time. Detecting a pregnancy early on can help you plan the next steps for you and your baby. Our staff offers confidential support and encouragement and can help you plan the next steps. Walk-ins are welcome for pregnancy tests!
We also offer free limited ultrasounds! There are two sonographers (highly skilled medical imaging professionals within the allied health sector who operate an ultrasound machine to perform diagnostic medical sonographic examinations) who come to the center. An Ultrasound uses sound waves to detect the movement of your baby and can give an image of what is going on inside your ever-changing body as well as estimated information on how far along you may be in your pregnancy. For further information on ultrasounds or to set up an appointment, please feel free to call our center!
Life Matters Classes
Life Matters is the name of our educational program designed to help you grow in every area of your life. This program is designed with your interests and needs in mind. Each class is approximately an hour in length and is taught by a qualified and caring volunteer in a one-on-one setting. The Life Matters courses earn you boutique bucks that you can spend on important material items such as diapers, wipes, clothing items, cribs, and car seats. In addition, each class completed earns you free items from our boutique. See below for more information about our Life Matters Program.
Here at the center we believe in the power of community. Our Relationship classes include lessons in love, marriage, and dating. The materials and consultants offer support and insight on how to restructure and maintain healthy relationships to create a richer life.
Pregnancy Support and Prenatal Education
Our prenatal classes offer education on the development of you and your baby throughout the pregnancy. Pregnancy can be a scary time – especially when you do not know what is happening in your own body or what your life will be like after the baby is born. These classes are designed to offer support and guidance throughout pregnancy, and are perfect for those who have decided to parent, as well as those who have made an adoption plan for their child.
Our parenting classes equip parents to better care for their children. Our classes cover a variety of topics such as setting boundaries with your children, how to help your baby sleep, and better ways to discipline. These classes are great for parents of newborns, as well as for parents of older children and teenagers.
We are also here for emotional support. Every time you come for a Life Matters Class, you will meet with a consultant who will walk beside you in your pregnancy and/or parenting journey. Your consultant will be there for you through both the ups and downs of your life – listening to your concerns, supporting you in your disappointments, and celebrating with you in your victories. Your consultant truly wants to help you “do life” – in relationships, pregnancy, and parenting!
Raising a family is expensive. Our budgeting classes cover topics such as grocery shopping, paying rent, and buying a car. They offer practical guides on how to budget and get a head start on creating a financially stable life for you and your family.
Our center believes that having a relationship with God is the most important relationship you can have! Because of this, we offer several classes that work to increase your knowledge about the Bible and how to start or deepen a relationship with Jesus.
Health and Safety Classes
We care about the health and safety of you and your baby! Our health and safety classes offer information on car safety, first aid, SIDs, post-partum depression, and the effects of smoking and alcohol on your child. These classes are designed not only to offer education but also practical ways to help create a better environment for your family.
Our group classes are designed to provide support through community. It is important for you to know that there are other women and families who are dealing with similar issues as you are. By taking our group classes, you will gain practical advice and build relationships that will encourage you during your pregnancy or parenting journey.
We offer a “Food for Thought” class that includes four sessions. This class is designed to help you with meal planning, grocery shopping, and healthy food choices for you and your family. These classes will provide resources to help you make mealtime and enjoyable experience. In addition, members of the “Food for Thought” class have the opportunity to earn a free bag of groceries throughout their time in this class. Call us today to register for this class!
Labor & Delivery Classes
Our Labor and Delivery Course includes three classes that are all an hour long. These classes are designed to prepare you and your partner for what to expect while in labor, and are perfect for first time parents, as well as for those who have been through labor and delivery in the past. Call us to register for the Labor and Delivery Course!
Oasis is a structured group for women (18 and older) with therapeutic activities and discussions that address key issues in an environment where you can comfortably learn and share. Topics include anger, boundaries, stress management, shame, guilt, and more. If you need a safe place to discover healing and understanding, call us to get registered for an upcoming session. Oasis is led by professional counselors from Well of Grace Ministries and is held at our center twice a year.
Bonding With Your Newborn

Pregnancy and parenting is not just about the woman! Men have a very important role – both as partners and as parents. Our Men’s Ministry is designed to help men embrace the important role they have as fathers, and to equip them to be strong fathers who lead with love and wisdom. Each class in our Men’s Ministry is taught by a qualified male volunteer. Read more about our Men’s Ministry below.
Men's Mentoring Program
We have qualified male volunteers who come to the center regularly to meet with and mentor our male clients. They offer practical advice and wisdom from a Biblical perspective, and desire to help men become the fathers and partners that God designed them to be.

Our facility contains a boutique filled with baby supplies. It is possible to earn store credit by participating in one of the several Life Matters classes we offer.

Store credit can be saved up to help you purchase bigger items such as car seats, mattresses, or cribs, or it can be used to purchase smaller items such as diapers, wipes, and formula. Our boutique is one of the many ways we provide support to all who enter our center.
Post Abortion Support
Have you had an abortion in the past? We want you to know that there is healing and grace available in Jesus Christ!
