40 Years of Ministry

Life Network operates three pregnancy centers and other local outreaches that provide a holistic approach to valuing life and transforming lives in and around Colorado Springs. Since 1983, we’ve served over 125,000 women facing unplanned pregnancies, and expanded our reach to men, families and students in our community.

Last year, we averaged more than 550 appointments each month through the pregnancy centers. This past year, Life Network saved 324 babies’ lives and impacted over 15,000 people across all that we provide for the community.

“I wasn’t sure where to start when I found out I was pregnant. The pregnancy center was there for me the next morning. It’s where I had my sonogram and the volunteers are incredibly kind.”

Kelly's Story

Kelly* came to the center seeking information about abortion because the father of the baby was strongly pressuring her to abort. He had given Kelly an ultimatum that choosing to carry would be the end of their relationship. Kelly shared with us that she felt that abortion was wrong, but she felt she needed to consider everyone’s feelings. Our staff was able to educate Kelly and her partner with accurate information about the development of her baby and reveal life to them using ultrasound.

The counseling and the life-revealing ultrasound gave Kelly the courage to fight for her baby’s life and choose to carry her baby!

Transformation

Providing Vital Support Through the Parenthood Program

Many families facing difficult pregnancy decisions in our community consider abortion due to challenging life circumstances: financial need, previous trauma, relationship instability or just plain fear. We provide continuing support and mentorship through the Parenthood Program that empowers and equips our clients as they build their family — and points them toward hope in Christ.

“I learned about Jesus. This program is helping me in many ways. I could not do this without help from good people like you. I will always be thankful for you.”

Client advocates are trained how to share the gospel message in a sensitive, appropriate yet truthful way. In a typical day, we have conversations with 11 clients about Christian faith in our centers. In a typical month, we see 6 clients make decisions to follow Christ.
