Alpha Pregnancy Resource Center began in 1992 and was located on the second floor over Garnsey Brothers Insurance in Sanford, Maine. Pregnant moms would have to walk up a very steep, long flight of stairs to Alpha, where we offered pregnancy counseling, abstinence education, and provided material aid to clients. In 2007, Alpha moved to a location closer to Sanford Junior High School with one client counseling room and no air conditioning. Although Alpha had an Earn While You Learn curriculum in both of these locations, it wasn’t until moving to our present location in the Sanford Trust building in 2011 that we were able to triple the amount of curriculum that we offer to clients. We now have two client rooms, and in 2014 expanded our hours to Monday through Thursday 9am to 5pm. Both of these changes provide the opportunity to serve even more clients than before.

In 2016 we served 133 clients for a total of 1,531 client visits. We provide, on average, 50 packages of diapers and 100 packages of wipes each and every month. All material aid is “purchased” using points earned as clients work through our Earn While You Learn curriculum. We provide free pregnancy tests, both by appointment and walk in, as well as offer pregnancy options information. We not only serve and care for those that come in for options information, but we continue to serve and care for them as they continue through their pregnancy and parent their child. It is important to us that we not only speak life in regards to the baby she is carrying, but also to the parents as we foster hope and support them.

Although we have always made abstinence education a part of our curriculum, we are now increasing our healthy relationships education and our marketing to reach youth before they need our pregnancy services. We are working on increasing our curriculum, as well as sponsored a healthy relationships youth event in 2014 through a generous grant.
