The mission of Alternatives.Yes is to help those facing pregnancy and to provide
life-affirming services that protect and enhance their lives, their children, and their families
through pregnancy and beyond.
Alternatives.Yes is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
Alternatives.Yes is a service provider of the statewide alternatives to abortion
program administered through Real Alternatives, which is funded through the PA
Department of Public Welfare. We became incorporated in 1999 but have been
providing crisis pregnancy services since 1987.
Alternatives.Yes won the 'Service Provider of the Year' Award in 2005 and
2007. This is the top award given in the Alternatives to Abortion Program, and
we beat out 126 centers across the state to receive this prestigious honor. One
of our counselors won the statewide "Counselor of the Year" award in 2009.
In 2012 we received the 'Salt and Light Award for Outstanding Human Service
Organization' from the Catholic Diocese of Greensburg.
We had over 1200 client visits last year. About 35% of our clients are young
fathers who are gaining important parenting skills in our Earn While You Learn
Program and earning 'baby bucks' to get the things they need for their babies.
