When a woman walks through the doors of Blue Ridge Women’s Center, she’s often feeling scared, alone and unsure what to do. We meet her with love, hope and support. No matter what choice she makes, it will change her life forever. While we recognize it’s a woman’s legal right to choose, we want her to know the truth about all her options before making her choice.

Counselors provide support, resources, answer questions and provide information about each of the choices for her pregnancy – adoption, parenting & abortion. No matter what choice she makes, Blue Ridge Women’s Center will also be there for her.
