It is the mission of Alpha Family Center to compassionately encourage healthy sexual choices that protect the sanctity of life and family by providing educational and support services.
AFC is a life-affirming, Christian, pregnancy resource center serving those who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy, traumatized by abortion or other sexual trauma, or needing parenting support and education.
The organization was begun in 2000 in Newaygo Michigan as a satellite office of the Grand Rapids Alpha Women’s Center. In 2007 the office became in independent center, with its own Board of Directors and incorporated as a 501(c)(3), non-profit, religious, educational organization, serving the people of Newaygo County.
The ministry is funded through the generous donations of local individuals, churches, businesses and foundations. AFC does not accept government funds. We are an outreach of every local church who partners with us. As the ministry is volunteer driven, one of the primary partnerships with the local church is volunteering of church members.
The Services of Alpha Family Center are always free to everyone. Services include: Pregnancy options counsel, material and education support for parenting, adoption support, relationship education of healthy sexual choices, healing from sexual abuse and trauma, and post-abortion recovery.
