The Alternatives Helpline is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Volunteers are available to be a bridge for callers who might be facing unintended pregnancy or seeking recovery from post-abortion loss.
This position can fit well into the schedule of our friends whose season of life allows them to be available to clients via the telephone. Helpline volunteers answer phone calls at home-forwarded at night and on weekends-from the Alternatives office. We offer a one-day intensive training to equip volunteers with the information necessary to be empowered to assist the caller. Volunteers going through this training would then would be asked to get scheduled on a regular (monthly) basis to take calls.
About Alternatives: Alternatives Pregnancy Center exists to care for Denver-area women and men in pregnancy-related crises and offer them a meaningful alternative to abortion. Following the example of Christian love, we seek to meet emotional, physical and spiritual needs, enabling and encouraging women and men to choose life every day.
Founded in 1982 as a faith-based organization, our goal is to counsel and live the gospel in front of one woman at a time and to preserve the life of one baby at a time. We offer women alternatives to abortion by providing practical care for them and their families through comprehensive education, counseling, material assistance, and referrals. In addition, Alternatives seeks to educate young people about sexual abstinence before marriage and to help women find healing and grieve for their children lost through abortion.
Alternatives Pregnancy Center maintains its Christian witness in the secular world by upholding biblical standards of conduct in its ministry. We also desire to educate and involve the Metro-Denver Christian business community and churches on the issue of abortion and its ramifications.
