Pregnant?

Finding yourself in an unexpected pregnancy can be a scary thing. Many women who find themselves in an unexpected pregnancy feel similar emotions- confusion, fear, joy, worry... At Elisha House, we want  you to know that regardless of your situation, you are not alone. Elisha House offers education on abortionadoption and parenting. There are many resources and supports available in our community to help assist you in your pregnancy. Often, women think abortion is the best solution, but the relief is short lived. The pain and complications from abortion may last a life-time. 

If you are not sure whether or not you are pregnant, you can come to Elisha House for a free pregnancy test and support.
