Living Alternatives

Long-time Bethel member Bev Kline founded Living Alternatives in 1982 out of a desire to help a young pregnant woman find an alternative to abortion. It has grown to incorporate many facets of pregnancy. The umbrella principle is to bring hope to families and the unborn using a holistic approach: ForThe1 finds families for adoptions or fostering; Building Blocks teaches parenting skills; Fatherheart is a home for unwed pregnant moms; Keeps Boutique provides clothes for moms; Loving Alternatives helps with placement if a mother decides not to parent; the Pregnancy Resource Center counsels women looking for an alternative to abortion; and RUTH is a mobile pregnancy testing and ultrasound unit for other East Texas communities that lack these programs.
