Since 1991, Life Services has been coming alongside men and women facing sexual health concerns as well as those who have or are facing an unplanned pregnancy. Through our MyChoice Clinics, Maternity Home, Post-Abortion Care Network and our Host Homes we offer the practical, medical, emotional and spiritual support needed for each unique situation. Through the power of Jesus Christ, we are often able to shine light into what feels, to many, like a hopeless situation.
Our first center was located in 500 square feet of donated space on the north side of Spokane and offered simple pregnancy advocacy and post-abortion support. Eventually, the need for our services necessitated a couple of moves until we landed at our current headquarters; 2659 N. Ash St. Within just a short time, a medical clinic was added which allowed us to add ultrasound and prenatal care to our list of services. In 2000 we were granted a Group Home License for our Maternity Home allowing us to become a refuge to pregnant women and their babies. One year later we added a WA State license as a child placing agency which permits us to certify and oversee host (foster) homes for young mothers and their children after they leave the Maternity Home.
Life Services is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization affiliated with two national organizations: Heartbeat International and the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA). We are a non-denominational Christian ministry, independently funded and administered apart from a specific church or affiliating organization. Life Services does not profit from its clientele and most services are provided free of charge to whoever needs them. Governed by a Board of Directors, Life Services is managed by an Executive Director who oversees staff and professionals from various disciplines including social services and medicine. All medical services are overseen by our Medical Director (a Board-certified OBGYN). At the core of our ministry, however, are trained volunteers who provide valuable support and long-term care to our clients.
The most important services offered through Life Services are compassionate long-term care, accurate up-to-date medical information, resourcing and the opportunity to know the love of Jesus Christ. Through its various programs, Life Services provides assistance to anyone in need, regardless of race, creed, nationality, age, marital status, sexual orientation or gender identity without judgment. We do not perform, refer for or facilitate the obtaining of abortion services.
