EPS is dedicated to helping expectant women and parenting families make life-affirming choices for themselves and their children through medical services, education, professional counseling, material assistance and resource information. Since 1973, Essential Pregnancy Services (EPS) has existed as a haven for women facing unplanned pregnancies. Our work is founded on the principle of upholding the dignity of all persons – born and unborn – through compassionate care for women. We believe it is our responsibility to offer our time and resources to assist women, facing the most difficult circumstances, to understand their pregnancy and to learn about all options available to them. Our accurate medical information, factual and science-based education, and informational resources empower women to make informed decisions for themselves and their health. All services are provided at no cost.
EPS offers many ways for you to gift of your time and energy to our life-saving mission. Call EPS during business hours at 402.554.0121. Descriptions of many of the volunteer opportunities at EPS are below.
