Community Service

Tax Deductible Donations As a 501(c)(3) not-for profit organization, donations to CHOICE are tax deductible! As an organization, CHOICE is committed to serving the public. Over the years, CHOICE has developed a number of programs that serve the community as a whole including free referrals to appropriate practitioners, a parent support group, a parent resource center, childbirth education classes, free lending library, free consultations and speakers for educational programs. Community Education: CHOICE provides information on the various practices and techniques of childbirth and the options available to parents in hospitals, birth centers and the home. CHOICE will provide speakers to interested groups regarding safe alternatives in childbirth and related topics. Films and slide presentations are also available on the same topics with discussion following the presentations. Referrals and Free Consultations: CHOICE will refer persons seeking help to the appropriate practitioner, birth attendant or organization within their community offering services that will help them achieve the birth they desire.  CHOICE believes that all parents should have a wide range of safe choices in their childbirth options. CHOICE has dedicated itself to developing these choices in childbirth for parents within our community. Below is a list of the programs that CHOICE has developed to meet the needs of all parents, regardless of where they choose to give birth. Free Lending Library: Our Free Lending Library contains books and DVDs about pregnancy, childbirth (including home birth, Lamaze, LeBoyer), nutrition, breastfeeding, and infant care. Donations of books or DVDs to our library are tax deductible! The CHOICE Parent Resource Center provides FREE, gently used maternity and baby clothes, baby equipment and furniture to the public.  All items have been donated to CHOICE and are available to anyone in the community, regardless of whether or not they are CHOICE clients. The Parent Resource Center is open to the public on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Donations are gratefully accepted and are tax deductible!
