Pregnancy Support Services
Pregnancy can be overwhelming and the thought of carrying out a pregnancy might seem like an exhausting responsibility. Our PSS team is here to provide expectant parents with individualized support during what can be both a confusing and troublesome time. Social workers are available to listen and provide compassionate guidance. The PSS Program in Wisconsin has helped more than 2,800 women (at no cost) since opening in 1984.
Services provided by PSS include:
- 24/7 response to urgent situations
- Support for individuals of ALL ages, including minors
- In-home visits
- Counseling services
- Individualized parenting support
- Incentive program (Fruits of Your Labor) for baby items
- Community resource referrals
- Pregnancy Health Education
- Birth options counseling
- Adoption information and placement services
- Referrals for post-abortion support
- Short-term foster care
If you choose to parent your child, we can help you in a number of ways. Social workers assist in locating childbirth classes, housing opportunities, employment, schooling, and many other resources. A special incentive program (Fruits of Your Labor) offers baby clothing, blankets, diapers, feeding accessories, baby furniture, and personal items for mothers who participate in the program. PSS will include the father of the baby for counseling, if desired and appropriate. This program challenges, encourages, and rewards positive behaviors for parents.
If you choose to place your child for adoption, our PSS staff is available to assist you throughout the entire process. You will be able to select the family you feel is right for your child. Our PSS staff will provide you with the opportunity to look through profiles that include pictures, information about the family, and a written letter to you. You will have the chance to meet with the prospective adoptive couple and ask any questions you may have. All our adoptive families are committed to raising children in a loving Christian home. You can see some of our current families on our Parent Profiles page. Additional family profiles are available upon request.
