The Alternatives to Abortion Program offers services to help women carry their unborn child to term instead of having an abortion. This program also helps support women after making this choice by finding resources to help with caring for a child or by helping women learn more about adoption, if they choose.

The two abortion alternatives are parenting and adoption. Both involve carrying your pregnancy to term. If you meet the program qualifications, you can receive free support services to help cover your costs.

We can refer you to support services, including parenting skills education, some medical care/pregnancy health care, domestic abuse protection, and more. Visit our Resources page to find helpful organizations near you.

There’s a lot to consider when you find out you’re pregnant. If you qualify for the Alternatives to Abortion Program, you can receive certain free pregnancy services first to ensure you’re healthy.

Afterward, you will want to consider your needs and ensure you can meet them throughout pregnancy. Once enrolled in our program, you can receive assistance with housing, food, transportation, supplies, and other necessities.

You are eligible if you are a pregnant woman who:
