We are here to compassionately serve women and their unborn children through their crisis pregnancy enabling them both to live a healthy lifestyle.
So in lay man’s terms we are a crisis pregnancy center offering pregnancy tests, confidential lay counseling, baby and maternity supplies, a 24 hour hotline, an Earn While You Learn program and recommendations and referrals for STD testing and ultrasounds as needed. All of our services are offered free of charge.
Our Earn While You Learn program is a series of lessons on such topics and what to expect when you are expecting, prenatal care, nutrition, shaken baby syndrome, car seat safety, etc. For each lesson attended and for homework completed the attendee earns mommy dollars that can be used in our “store”. We stock a wide variety of maternity and baby supplies ranging from layettes and diapers to car seats and diaper bags.
We are identified as Options for Women Tri-County (formerly Tri-County Total LifeCare) serving Polk, Burnett and northern St. Croix counties but we open our door and our hearts to anyone needing our service from any area. We also have volunteers who will provide transportation to our center if that is needed.
We have a 9 member board of directors and are an affiliate of the Options for Women Pregnancy Resource Center network that is based in St. Paul, MN. Our center is located at 215 ½ Cascade Street in Osceola, WI. Our office is open from noon to 4pm Monday through Thursday and any other time by appointment.
We offer all of our services free of charge and we neither receive nor accept any government funds. That means all of our operating dollars are raised through donations from like-minded individuals and from fundraisers. We have 2 part time paid staff members and all other services are provided by trained volunteers.
The following list will give you an idea of some of our costs of operation and perhaps you can gear your donation to help with one or more of the items on this list!
