Helping pregnancy resource centers and clinics thrive since 1974!
We are a life-affirming non-profit organization that provides our affiliated network of pregnancy resource centers and clinics the support and services they need to thrive and help build up a culture of life in their communities.
The history of TLC Options for Women is woven through the lives of the countless men and women dedicated to providing life-affirming options to our community. It began with a retired nun, Sister Jeanne Therese Condon, who saw a great need in our community. In 1974 she founded TLC to advocate for the protection of human life from conception to natural death.
TLC supports Affiliate Pregnancy Resource Centers who offer material, emotional, and financial support to pregnant women; giving them the strength to make life-affirming choices. Our Affiliates provide over 22,000 services to clients annually, including:
Compassionate Client Advocates
" The word 'safe place' is what they gave me. They were just there to help"
~ Alyssa, former client at our Options for Women affiliate in Morris, MN
Our trained client advocates provide clients with free, confidential information to help them sort through the many emotions associated with an unplanned pregnancy. We believe everyone deserves a nurturing and non-judgmental support system. We present facts concerning our clients' choices and assure them they have what they need to make fully informed decisions about their pregnancy.
Group Affiliation & Associated Benefits through Heartbeat International
This affiliation was brokered by TLC so that each of our Centers could take advantage of the many resources that Heartbeat offers – one of which is free after-hours phone answering by trained pregnancy counselors 24/7. The cost for each of our Affiliates to join Heartbeat without this special arrangement through TLC would be $7500.
In 2015, Options for Women affiliated centers provided over 1100 items to women and families in need! Items included: cribs, car seats, high chairs, strollers, and more.
