We encourage you to consider coming into one of our Pregnancy Help Centers with the mother of your child to support her during this challenging process. You will both have a number of difficult decisions to make; decisions that will be easier if you make them together.
-Strict confidentiality policy
-Free pregnancy test
-Ultrasound or referral to confirm pregnancy
-Knowledge and support of your pregnancy choices as they relate to parenting, choosing parents for you child (adoption) or abortion
-Information regarding abortion risks; both physical and psychological
-Supportive counseling for both men and women
We know this is a stressful time, and want to give you the emotional support and stability you both need.
We have trained male advisors in our Project Joseph program who can meet with you and help you through this difficult time. Through Project Joseph you will learn to become a better man, discover your children’s needs, and how to prepare for the future.
Project Joseph is a program for men facing crisis pregnancies. It is run by men for men. Our mentors are volunteers from the community. There is no charge for the services that we provide.
Fathers may attend an entire program of 18 modules divided into three blocks of six: Becoming a Better Man; Parenting; Future Planning.
Fathers also receive education and support in other areas of fatherhood such as:
- community resources,
- behavior management,
- infant development,
- chastity and human sexuality,
- legal rights of fathers,
- faith and parenting,
- marriage and family,
- safeguarding children.
The program operates out of four of the pregnancy help centers. Fathers earn "daddy dollars" for every session they attend. They can cash in their daddy dollars for anything from diapers to cribs and mattresses.
A father may join Project Joseph at any point in the pregnancy until the child is one-year old. Project Joseph is always there to help if a father needs to return later.
HEALING AFTER ABORTION
Fathers who need to grieve their abortion loss and who seek reconciliation and healing have found a great blessing in post-abortive counseling. We can connect you to a mentor who can provide you this service, entirely free.
