Alternatives is a community of individuals & organizations uniting to champion the cause that every life has inherent worth and dignity. We are dedicated to providing a continuum of non-judgmental, compassionate care for women and men facing a life-altering choice regarding an unexpected pregnancy.


Alternatives Pregnancy Center exists to care for Denver-area women and men in pregnancy-related crises and offer them a meaningful alternative to abortion. Following the example of Christian love, we seek to meet emotional, physical and spiritual needs, enabling and encouraging women and men to choose life every day.

Background Statement

In 1982, three Denver businessmen became concerned about the 17,601 metro area women who would choose to have abortions that year because there was no one to offer them an alternative. These men decided to spearhead a group of local Christians in establishing a place where women experiencing crisis pregnancies could find the hope and alternatives they needed to choose life.

In September of 1982, the Board of Directors was formed and Penny Salazar-Phillips, who had a Master's Degree in Social Work, was hired as Executive Director. In September, we saw our first clients in borrowed office space.

In 2022, Alternatives is celebrating 40 years of impacting all communities of Denver. Over 100,000 teens, women and men have been served with our various programs and services. Today we serve with offices in Aurora, downtown Denver, Lakewood and Inverness/Englewood. This covers a wide geographical area across Denver.

The history continues to be written each day through Alternatives Pregnancy Center. Generations are impacted, families are united and babies are born as teens, women and men discover there are alternatives to abortion.
