OUR HISTORY

The Community Pregnancy Center of Carson City, now doing business as Life Choices, was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation on March 4, 1983. It was borne from the desire of caring men and women who wanted to bring a compassionate answer to the rising tide of sexual irresponsibility, unplanned pregnancies, and abortion taking place in our nation. Today, we add to that list the current epidemic of sexually transmitted disease, as well as post-abortion consequences.

Since that time, Life Choices has helped over 10,000 women of all ages in Northern Nevada who were unprepared for pregnancy or faced a potential pregnancy. We helped meet the educational, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of these women enabling them to make an informed decision regarding the life of their unborn child and the impact of their personal choices.

In 2000, Life Choices began providing limited OB Sonograms to our clients. This year, we expect over 130 women will see their baby for the first time at Life Choices and 93% of them will choose life.

Earn While You Learn pregnancy and parenting classes began for our clients in 2008. Each year, over 50 mommies and daddies-to-be participate in classes to equip them to be the best parents they can be.

Worth The Wait abstinence until marriage training in Carson City Middle Schools and High School was added in 2009 and the HOPE Team began purity training for youth groups in 2012. Each year, hundreds of students learn about sexual integrity and consider the outcomes they can expect from the choices they make.

For those struggling with consequences from a past abortion or abortions, Life Choices has provided help and hope since 2007. Dozens of women in our town have experienced the joy of being Forgiven and Set Free through this powerful study by Linda Cochrane used world wide.

In 2014, Life Choices relocated from the 750 sq. foot office space we occupied for 16 years to our current location strategically located adjacent to the local Planned Parenthood, which has since closed. With twice as much space and simple yet purposeful décor, our clients report that Life Choices is inviting and calming – exactly as we intended.
