Real Alternatives

Real Alternatives exists to provide life-affirming alternatives to abortion services throughout the nation.  These compassionate support services empower women to protect their reproductive health, avoid crisis pregnancies, choose childbirth rather than abortion, receive adoption education, and improve parenting skills.


Real Alternatives is the non-profit, charitable organization that  administers the Pennsylvania Alternative to Abortion Services Program for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is funded by the General Assembly of Pennsylvania in FY 2011/2012 at  $5.794 million through the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare.

Pennsylvania Alternative to Abortion Services Program is made up of a statewide network of social service agencies,  pregnancy support centers, maternity residences and adoption agencies that offer comprehensive, life-affirming alternatives to abortion to women dealing with unplanned pregnancies.
