The mission of Alpha Women’s Center is to affirm and promote the sanctity of human life, the values of the family, and Biblical sexuality in our community. It is our resolve to withhold attitudes of judgment and condemnation, projecting instead attitudes of love, support, and service to our clients. By creating such an atmosphere, we can then assist women as they develop more fully as individuals, and take significant steps towards more rewarding lifestyles.
