Choices Women’s Center (CWC)

serves Fredericksburg and the

surrounding counties with a vision

of a community that values all human life from the moment of conception. We are a resource center for those in crisis. CWC empowers those facing unplanned pregnancy with hope and life-affirming choices by providing free and confidential pregnancy tests, ultrasound confirmations, and medical consultations. We educate our clients and their families on subjects such as healthy lifestyles, marriage, relationships and parenting. CWC envisions a future of healing and wholeness for each client we serve.


Bethany Christian Services was founded 

in 1944 and we have been serving

the Fredericksburg area since 1989. 

Our pregnancy counseling program provides free and confidential counseling to women and men facing unplanned pregnancy.  We offer life-affirming options and social services, whether clients choose to parent or choose to make an adoption plan for their baby.  Our domestic and international adoption programs place infants and children in approved forever families.  Our mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families through quality social services. Bethany envisions a world in which EVERY child has a loving family.  

We provide an

expectant mother

and any additional

children she may have with housing for up to three years in order for her to further her education and/or secure employment. She must receive counseling, attend in-house parenting and life-skill classes, and adhere to the program covenants which offer structure, self-discipline and guidance. This foundation, rooted in the teachings of Christ, ensures that our mothers have the necessary time and tools to work toward their goals and provide for their children, making the possibility of independent living a reality.

We are so grateful to our sponsors for investing in a community that values LIFE. To learn more about them, click on their logos below.
