Hope Rising provides free services, emotional support, and guidance for students facing unplanned pregnancies. We can provide the support and resources you need to feel confident and empowered in your pregnancy decision. We offer a safe place of hope and help to go through this process.
students, we’re here for you
We understand you may be feeling stuck and afraid. An unexpected pregnancy is overwhelming. You already have a million things on your mind, like making the team or planning for the weekend. You probably have dreams for your future and goals you want to achieve. Pregnancy can feel a lot like one extra issue that you simply cannot handle at this time. It’s going to be ok. You can handle this, and you do not have to go through this alone. We will be with you every step of the way.
we value your privacy
When you become pregnant as a student, we understand you might not be ready to let people know. We honor your right to privacy and have a strict confidentiality policy. Regardless of age, Ohio law does not require you to have an adult with you for a pregnancy test or ultrasound. However, we do encourage young clients to seek advice from a trusted adult. We won’t tell your parents, friends, or anyone that you visited us, and we won’t contact you without your permission. No matter the circumstance, we care about you.
during your appointment
- You can receive free pregnancy testing and limited ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy.
- We’ll discuss your pregnancy options, including abortion, adoption, and parenting.
- You’ll receive emotional support without judgment. Our consultants care about you and want to help you. We will listen to your story if you wish to share, answer your questions, and hear your concerns with compassion.
With the right information, you will be ready to make an informed decision.
- Medical referrals to local clinics and ob-gyns
- Adoption resources and referrals
We know this is a difficult decision. We want to help you make the most informed choice you can.
