  • Are ultrasounds offered at Alpha?
We  offer free, confidential ultrasounds for women who are in their early stage of pregnancy.

  • Do you provide abortions?
Alpha does not provide abortions, and we do not refer people to other agencies that do perform them.  We would be honored to sit down and discuss all of the options available to you if you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. While we cannot help you make a decision we would like to make sure that you have all of the information available to you before you make a decision. No matter which decision you choose to make, Alpha will always be a place where you can return to because we care about the people who visit our center.
