What We Offer

 

Unexpected pregnancy comes with a rush of thoughts and feelings.

We offer a safe and caring environment to help you navigate your choices.

We care about you.

What actually happens during an abortion? 

What is the abortion pill (mifepristone (Mifeprex), also known as RU-486)? Is it the same as Plan B? How much does it cost? Is it safe?

Great questions! At Options for 8, Inc. Pregnancy Resource Center, a client advocate will answer your questions about abortion. She can show you videos of how abortion works if you’re interested. It’s a lot of information, so your client advocate will also give you a handout to keep.

 

To learn more about how abortion works and the risks involved, contact us. Call or text.

Got Questions?

No Matter Where You Are In Life. We're Here To Help You!

We have free and confidential services for women of all ages. We are here to walk by your side every step of the way. 

We’ve got connections!

We also provide referral services for medical and social support.

Some services are free, while others have a small fee associated. If you choose to work with us as a client, we are often able to help cover fees. (We’d love to talk to you on a case-by-case basis.)

Medical Support

Learn the health of your pregnancy and assess the gestational age of the baby with an ultrasound. We can refer you to a clinic for a no-cost ultrasound. Some clinics are about 20 minutes away, and we can help with free transportation if needed. At Options for 8, Inc. Pregnancy Resource Center, we don’t offer ultrasounds on location, but we would like to in the future.

Anyone who is sexually active should get tested for STDs/STIs annually. Sexually Transmitted Diseases or Infections don’t always cause symptoms right away. This means you can have and spread STIs without knowing it.

Testing allows you to get treatment early, and avoid conditions like Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. Options for 8, Inc. Pregnancy Resource Center can refer you to a clinic for confidential, free STI testing and confidential, free treatment.

If you are dealing with health issues and need help finding a doctor, we can refer you to a primary care doctor. The cost will vary depending on your insurance (or lack of insurance.) You may be eligible for state healthcare. Contact us for the most up-to-date information.
