The Alpha Center is a nonprofit Christian Medical Clinic in the heart of Fort Collins and takes pride in providing compassionate, exceptional medical care to those in need of a pregnancy test, options education, STD screening, professional relationship counseling and sexual health education. The Alpha Center does not provide nor refer for abortions. All services are offered at no cost, thanks to the generous support of many individuals, businesses and churches in our community.
Each month, Alpha Center will share a (anonymized) client’s story with us so we can see the impact made by our support.
Jessica* came to us to learn more about her options and confirm her pregnancy. During her first visit, she shared that she was anxious and trying to decide between parenting and abortion. During her ultrasound, she was quiet but emotional when she heard the heartbeat and viability was confirmed. The father of the baby, Michael, was also very quiet during the ultrasound, and they declined to take an ultrasound picture with him.
During her repeat appointment the following week, Jessica shared that after the last appointment, she and Michael had talked for three hours and decided to parent. She had already applied for Medicaid and scheduled her first prenatal appointment. During that week's ultrasound, she smiled, looked at the fetal model, asked questions and accepted a photo to take home. We finished the appointment by sharing program information and sending her on, thankful that she had chosen life!
