Alpha Women’s Center is a pro-life pregnancy care center with a heart for the woman suspecting that she might be pregnant. We serve women of all ages and families regardless of their religion, marital status, or ethnicity. We have helped teenagers, single moms, and many other expecting mothers who are in need of help, support, or friendship. Whether your pregnancy is unexpected or planned, the Alpha Women’s Center is ready and willing to serve and help you through your pregnancy. Please take a look at our Programs page to see a list of ways we can help you before, during, and after your pregnancy.

We opened our doors in 1995 and have served countless women since then in our Des Moines and Ankeny locations. Our vision and mission is to glorify God as a Christ-centered resource for affirming the sanctity of human life from conception to the grave. We offer many services to women and families who are in need of assistance during or after pregnancy.

AWC has four staff members and is directed by its board, and relies heavily on the faithful service of our many trained volunteers. Alpha Women’s Center does not receive government funding and relies entirely on donations and private support from churches and individuals.
