Community Action

At Viable Options, we are committed to more than a service. We are committed to transforming communities. 

Professional agencies, nonprofits, and medical providers fill vital needs in the lives of those facing a pregnancy decision and are an irreplacable resource within our communities. When it comes to offering long-term, relational support, however, it is the friends, family members, neighbors, and peers of women and their partners who are best equipped and positioned to provide holistic care and tangible solutions.



“Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.”

— Helen Keller

Get Involved

Don’t outsource the unique role you have to play. There are numerous ways in which you can be on the frontlines of a movement to embrace and advocate for women and their partners. 

Book a consulting session

Community transformation is a long-term goal and one that will be accomplished through the willingness of individual community members to change conversations within their own lives and spheres. 

You can play a role by inviting our team to present at your agency, campus, church, or business or by booking an onsite consulting session for your staff, volunteers, students, or residents. 

Invite us to your campus

We are passionate about equipping students with a relational response to unintended pregnancy. Reach out to us to find out how you can host a presentation, event, or info session at your university. 

Visit our student resources page for more information about campus-specific offerings!

Become a financial partner

By investing your resources in Viable Options, you can help to provide solutions and care for your friends and peers and take personal ownership of something greater than yourself.

Financial giving is one of the ultimate expressions of care in the service world; and it can be as simple as forgoing one weekly cup of coffee.

Whether it’s $5, $15, or $25 per month, you can practically invest in bringing hope to those facing a pregnancy decision in your community and beyond.
