Loving Choices Pregnancy Centers

If you know me, you know that I work for Loving Choices Pregnancy Centers of Northwest Arkansas. Loving Choices is a Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) which means we help women (and their boyfriends or families) that might be experiencing a crisis or unplanned pregnancy.

Loving Choices started about 23 years ago in Rogers and we now have a location in FAyetteville too. We are a non-profit organization funded by individuals and local churches. We have a great list of services that we offer to these women during their time of crisis. EVERYTHING we do is FREE and CONFIDENTIAL!

We serve women through options counseling, pregnancy testing, limited ubsterical ultrasounds, STD/STI testing, long term mentoring and parenting classes, and post abortion support.

The majority of our clients are between 15-25 and they come to us because they don't know what to do about their unplanned pregnancy.

Loving Choices is here to serve women and make sure they know they DO HAVE OPTIONS and there is hope. I know most of clients come to us feeling hopeless and they do not know what to do. We are able to counsel them on their options and provide them with services and support to help them through this scary time.

Our hope is that clients will choose LIFE for their baby through parenting or making an adoption plan. If a client chooses to parent or make an adoption plan we encourage them to plug into our Care Center. The Care Center is and incentive program that uses a curriculum called Earn While You Learn. Each week clients come to meet with a volunteer counselor to learn parenting skills or prenatal care, for bible studies, or to just talk about life. Each week they earn mommy bucks (fake $) to spend in our Mommy boutique where they can purchase most of their baby needs.

Loving Choices does not offer or refer for abortions, but we are Pro-Woman. If a client does choose abortion we will lover her still. We will also provide her with post-abortion counseling if she is interested.

Our ULTIMATE goal is to love women and educate them so they can make an informed decision about their pregnancy.
