We Can Help

Are you pregnant or have you recently given birth? 

If you or someone you know is facing an unplanned pregnancy and don’t know where to turn, Spence-Chapin can help. Our caring and compassionate experts will talk you through all of your options, including adoption. We offer free, unbiased, and confidential counseling and community resources for expectant parents.

You have the right to choose what is best for you and your child, and we can help. You are not alone.  

We offer in-person and virtual counseling.

Contact us 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

"Spence-Chapin helped me understand the broad world of adoption....They helped me understand [the] process and made sure I was the one with agency and power in every turn. There are many uncertainties in life, but choosing Spence-Chapin to help me with my adoption plan was not one of them....With all the knowledge, support, and care from Spence-Chapin, I was prepared to make life-changing choices knowing that they were with me every step of the way."
Linda L.
