Protect the life of the next generation of people

A Great Need

Every year about 44 million women around the world struggle with the decisions surrounding an unexpected pregnancy. The pressure is not only internal -- outside circumstances often add confusion and pressure to the situation. Like this . For a woman in Africa ,there may be no pregnancy center for help in her country and the situation is

Some husband leave their wives to shoulder the situation alone.
Some boyfriends insist their girl friends gets an abortion or he will end their relationship.
Teenagers's parents have arranged for an abortion.
When women are confronted with the difficult circumstances of an unplanned pregnancy, they deserve to be offered not only practical help for now, but also bright hope for the future.
"in almost every case, a woman chooses abortion to accommodate the wishes of others who do not welcome her child."

The finality of an abortion decision and the pressures women experience in an unplanned pregnancy demonstrate The Comforter’s Center. Counseling has the greatest impact when a woman first discovers she is pregnant and faces her fear and confusion. It is at this time of crisis when a young girl or woman needs compassionate help from someone who really cares about both her and her baby.
The Comforter’s Center is a safe place for a woman to think through this life-changing event with someone who is not vested in her decision:

For those who see the pregnancy as a "crisis" where the only way out is abortion.
For those who are unsure about what to do and need counseling and information.
For those who have decided to carry to term and need resources and referrals.
For those who have had an abortion and need post-abortion counseling.
Our Plan
For a woman to make an informed decision about her unplanned pregnancy, it takes the support of a caring helper, information about the growth and development of a baby and the options available in the community. Many outside pressures can make it difficult for her to carefully contemplate the choices placed before her. Whatever decision she makes, her life is changed forever. Reaching out to women one-on-one and recognizing their emotional, spiritual and practical needs is the way in which The Comforter’s Center endeavors to help each woman make a decision from her heart.

The Comforter’s Center's programs and services are designed for crisis intervention to reach women at the most critical time, when the pregnancy is first discovered. Our vision is to provide a support so comprehensive and caring that no woman will choose abortion without being fully informed of her options.

The Comforter’s Center offer the following services: pregnancy testing, pregnancy consultation, ultrasound, short and long-term counseling, referrals for medical care and social services, support groups, client advocacy, parenting information, abstinence and post-abortion counseling.

The Comnforter’s Center is set apart because...

Our services are offered free of charge to anyone, regardless of race or creed, who suspects she may be pregnant, is experiencing an unintended pregnancy, or has chosen an abortion in the past.

Our concern is for the woman, the child, her partner and family.

Our counseling services are specifically designed for women struggling with external pressures due to an unexpected pregnancy.

Our locations offer convenient access to services.

Our volunteer staff is highly trained and works under the direction and supervision of professional counselors.

We desire to be an educational arm to schools, churches, and other community organizations by presenting lively and interactive abstinence-based sexuality training.
Long Term Goals
The following goals are the areas that we will remain focused on over the long term while implementing our current strategies:

Crisis Intervention - Our primary aim is to provide our clients with emotional, spiritual and physical support during their time of crisis. In this regard, we seek to reach more women by developing marketing plans that not only promote The Conforter’s Center but also appeal to a broader spectrum of prospective clients. The ways that we are pursuing this goal are as follows:

Our involvement in radio advertising.

Our involvement, a 24-hour toll-free helpline.

Our community relations plan to reach the medical community and social services sector and offer pregnancy consultation services to their clients.

Abstinence Education - 20 percent of our clients have negative pregnancy test results. We take this opportunity to share the sexual abstinence message with each client, as it is the first line of defense in avoiding unintended pregnancies as well as STDs/STIs. We also take this challenge to middle schools, high schools and youth groups.

Post-Abortion Counseling - Through individual counseling, group sessions and retreats, Alternatives provides a safe place where women and men who experience Post-Abortion Stress can grieve their losses and move forward in strength with their lives.

Expansion - We are pursuing opening additional offices in the Front-Range area. Strong population growth dictates the need for additional community services, including pregnancy care center services. As new communities expand, we want to be there.
