Choices Pregnancy & Health was established in August of 1990 (then called Crisis Pregnancy Center of Eastern Illinois) and is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
Our purpose is to provide accurate information, compassionate care and material support to women and families who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy situation. We also educate and inform those who are at risk for sexually transmitted diseases of the danger of sexual relations outside of marriage. By offering these services we are affirming life and sharing the love of Christ in action.
Currently, there are four Centers serving the six county area of Coles, Moultrie, Douglas, Edgar, Clark and Cumberland as well as the campuses of Eastern Illinois University and Lake Land College. (see pictures on the Contact Us page) Choices is governed by a board of directors representing our geographic service area. All daily operations are performed by a Client Services Director and a trained volunteer staff from each community. Business administration is handled by an Executive Director and administrative staff.
All of the services and programs of Choices Pregnancy & Health are provided free of charge.
When a girl or woman comes to us either fearing or knowing she is pregnant we offer a variety of services to meet her needs. Our compassionate care includes a free pregnancy test, a limited obstetrical ultrasound, truthful information about all of her choices, unconditional and non-judgmental support, material assistance and much more.
