Purpose

At New Life Family Services, we compassionately open our doors and our hearts to women and men who believe abortion is the "only" solution to an unplanned pregnancy. Through practical and spiritual counsel, we provide education and support with the hope each client will make a life-affirming decision for their unborn child.

At New Life Family Services, we believe each person should have the ability to receive physical, emotional, and spiritual support as they face pregnancy-related situations and circumstances. We walk beside each client offering them love and support to make informed and educated decisions in their time of crisis and need. It is through this care that we are seeing God change hearts, save lives, build families, and restore hope.


Mission statement

To honor the sanctity of human life by assisting clients in life-affirming decisions with the love and compassion of Christ.

Values:

We believe that God is the author of life and has a plan for each life, therefore, we do not provide or refer for abortions.

We seek to empower our clients in their decision-making process by offering information about all pregnancy-related options. This includes medically accurate information about abortion, a realistic and thorough examination of parenting and adoption, and access to ultrasound.

We are committed to offering support to those facing unplanned pregnancy or struggling with a past abortion experience without judgment or condemnation.

We are committed to assisting our clients in choosing between adoption and parenting without bias toward either option.
