Since 1985, women and men have been coming to Embrace for all things related to pregnancy and sexual health. Every year, over 1600 people receive professional services at no cost, thanks to community supporters, all while maintaining a high rating on Facebook and Google. Call 316-945-9400 to learn more about our free and confidential services or read on for what you can expect from a visit to Embrace.
Although we tell clients to prepare for their appointment to take 45 minutes to an hour, there is no hard and fast time limit at Embrace. Embrace is an independently owned and operated nonprofit organization. That means we are here for you. There is no overhead department to please with numbers and no incentive for speed and turnover. If you need to sit a little longer in your pregnancy news before you leave to tell your parents or significant other, we will sit with you. If you’re experiencing stress in your current relationship and just need someone to talk to, we will listen.
We Will Treat You With Respect
At Embrace, we believe every human being has intrinsic value given to them by their Creator. No matter your background, economic status, or sexual orientation you will be treated with respect here: judgment-free. Our hope is that anyone who comes through our doors would not only receive excellent care but leave knowing they are valued and loved.
We Will Protect Your Privacy
A lot of the services provided at Embrace revolve around sensitive topics but you can rest assured knowing your personal information will be protected. We take our promise of privacy seriously and provide a notice of privacy practices before you ever receive a service. Your confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us so don’t hesitate to call and ask any questions you may have or talk to a staff member upon your visit.
We Will Support You
It’s one thing to say how we will offer support and it’s another to hear directly from those who have experienced it. Here’s what our clients are saying:
“This place literally changed my life. Their unconditional love and support got me through some of the toughest times for me. 11 years ago, I walked in, unsure of myself, afraid of starting all over, and of course, pregnant. Today, I’m confident and can trust again. Thank you. I’m on my way to becoming a Registered Nurse and happily married. My sisters at Embrace, thank you for loving me. This place is absolutely AMAZING.” -Tiana
“Embrace changes lives and makes it a lot easier to be a parent knowing you have an entire support system behind you.” -Kelsey
“I came in not having a clue what I was going to do or what decision I was going to make but your friendly and supportive staff helped me every step of the way. The last year with my son has been amazing. I’m looking forward to many more years being a mom and I thank God every day I walked into your building.” -Kendra
“Without Embrace, we would have struggled and been alone in the scariest moment of our lives.”-Christina
We Will Be Honest With You
We promise never to lie, manipulate or pressure you into a decision you are not ready to make. Instead, we want to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about your pregnancy or sexual health. Providing you with accurate information is one of our top priorities. As a 501c3 nonprofit, we have no financial benefit from your decisions and want only the best for your life and well-being. If there is ever a question or concern our medical professionals aren’t able to answer, we will provide you with community resources to get the help you need. To learn more about our free & confidential services, give us a call at 316-945-9400.
