About us

The Alpha Center began serving women facing unplanned pregnancies in Independence County, Arkansas, in 1982 with the intent to offer emotional, practical and spiritual support. We serve families facing unplanned pregnancies — before, during and after — with Christlike compassion. In October 2011, we legally became a medical center, expanding our services to offer women a free limited obstetrical ultrasound.

Today the Alpha Center serves hundreds of women annually, throughout our tri-county area and beyond, with FREE and CONFIDENTIAL services.
