According to their mission statement, Life Choices is a Christ-centered inter-denominational ministry, which seeks to serve women and families with confidential support.
Life Choices Chickasha got its start in a small house on Chickasha Ave. in 1989. At the time, the facility offered parenting classes and showed videos to young parent seeking help, Rebecka Brown, Director of Operations, said.
Over the years, Life Choices Chickasha grew and became a medical facility. At their current location, 210 Choctaw Ave., the facility is able to offer pregnancy tests and ultrasounds in addition to parenting, life skills and fatherhood classes as well as STD/STI testing and treatment programs. Life Choices also offers a post-abortion recovery counseling program.
Moreover, those who participate in the Life Choices programs are able to earn Baby Bucks, which they can trade in for baby supplies at the facility.
In the near future, Brown said Life Choices hopes to offer classes via Livestream for parents who are unable to attend classes in person.
Representatives from Life Choices Chickasha also visit schools to educate students about STDs and the option of abstinence. Life Choices is also present at Chickasha High School's annual health fair.
