I Decide For Me (IDFM) Classes

IDFM is an evidence-based program that provides students with the tools they need to live lives with sexual integrity. We equip students with objective information and decision making tools. This program is not based on belief or opinion but on facts. We want our students to be well-informed and prepared for any decisions regarding their sexual health.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Children and youth

Brightcourse classes are offered on in both individual and group settings. These classes cover a variety of topics to prepare our clients for pregnancy and parenthood.

Population(s) Served

When a woman comes to our clinic in crisis due to an unintended pregnancy, the first two steps we take are verifying the pregnancy through a simple urine-based testing kit and then options counseling. The second part of this process is vital to a woman understanding ALL of her options so she can make an informed decision.

Population(s) Served

At Bravely, we offer FREE well-woman exams/paps and std testing that are given by qualified medical professionals.

Population(s) Served

We offer free limited obstetrical ultrasounds to our clients who have proof of pregnancy. Sonography is one of our most powerful tools against a mother choosing abortion. This is the third part of our emergent care process. Oftentimes we find that if a woman has the chance to SEE her baby and realize it is more than just a clump of cells, it can make a huge difference in that woman choosing life instead of abortion.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Parents

We have a boutique where we distribute needed items to our clients for free. We offer clothing in sizes ranging from infant to adult. Other items we may have include diapers, wipes, cribs, strollers, toys, formula, and more. All items are donated by our friends in the local community.

Previously known as Continuum of Care Mentorship, our new program Every Mother’s Advocate (EMA), is designed to uniquely support mothers in crisis and/or at risk for family separation, or with children in foster care working towards reunification. This new and unique program is vital is assuring that after a woman chooses life for her baby, she is still supported. This also includes the fourth and final part of our emergent care process, overcoming immediate obstacles.
