TPCN is a non-profit, charitable organization that is committed to assisting organizations that help women in crisis pregnancies via free and compassionate, practical and life-affirming services.
TPCN’s Goals Are:
TPCN primarily achieves these goals by serving as the prime contractor of the Texas Alternative to Abortion Services Program (the “Program”), funded through the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. TPCN’s Program is made up of a state-wide network of pregnancy support centers, maternity residences, social service agencies, and adoption agencies that offer comprehensive, life-affirming support to women dealing with unplanned pregnancies. Known as Providers, these organizations are staffed with caring professionals and trained counselors and mentors. These centers are non-discriminatory, non-profit organizations that are monitored annually to ensure compliance with both TPCN and Health and Human Services Commission standards. The Providers offer confidential support, encouragement, guidance and practical assistance to women so they can feel supported and confident in choosing childbirth. None of TPCN’s Providers charge fees of any kind to the women and families they serve.

- Confidential counseling and/or mentoring

- Temporary Shelter

- Referrals to other community agencies and medical resources
