Real Alternatives

Organizational Information

Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

The mission of Real Alternatives is to provide life-affirming alternative to abortion services to assist women faced with crisis pregnancies. We accomplish this Mission by: (1) administering a statewide government-funded alternative to abortion services program that funds pro-life social service agencies, pregnancy support centers, maternity homes, and adoption agencies, that provide counseling and material assistance; and (2) educating other pro-life organizations throughout the country about government-funded alternative to abortion services programs. By accomplishing this Mission, we seek to ensure that women facing crisis pregnancies receive support, achieve improved reproductive health, develop improved parenting skills, and receive adoption education, all of which will empower them to choose childbirth rather than abortion.
