If you’d like to give a little something in honor of #GivingTuesday and are looking for a worthy nonprofit, charitable organization to donate to, I have a suggestion for you: Real Alternatives.
For many years, I’ve been privileged to be involved with the work of Real Alternatives, a Pennsylvania-based national corporation that provides life-affirming pregnancy and parenting support services empowering women to avoid crisis pregnancies, choose childbirth over abortion, and improve parenting skills.
This short video provides an excellent overview of the good work done by Real Alternatives service providers in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Michigan.
Begun in the mid-1990s by then Governor Robert P. Casey, through its network of pregnancy support centers, Catholic Charities, and maternity homes, Real Alternatives has enabled trained counselors to assist hundreds of thousands of women with confidential counseling; clothing, food, and furniture pantries; temporary shelter; pregnancy and parenting classes; education and career guidance and so much more.
Don’t take just my word for it. Here’s what others have to say about Real Alternatives:
“Real Alternatives counselors and volunteers are ‘true agents of hope and change’ . . . This army of compassion has succeeded against enormous odds . . . and their success is being replicated across the country.”
Michele Malkin, syndicated columnist, author, and blogger
“A program that doesn’t just play lip service support for mothers, for families, for children, to the fact that abortion is a tragedy, but it does something about it.”
Helen M. Alvaré, professor of law
Real Alternatives has been awarded the PANO Seal of Approval, which identifies it as an ethical and accountable organization. In short, the work it does is worth your hard-earned dollars.
