On Oct. 25, Woman’s Choice Services (WCS) celebrated the opening of their new Pregnancy Resource Center in Lombard with a ministry blessing and open house. The festivities began at 10 a.m. with an honor guard of local Knights of Columbus Councils welcoming the Most Rev. Joseph M. Siegel, auxiliary bishop and vicar general of the Diocese of Joliet, who performed the blessing.
Following the blessing, ministry staff welcomed guests for tours of the new facility which is located at 929 S. Main Street, Unit 103 in Lombard.
Last year, WCS provided help to over 400 women through pregnancy testing, limited ultrasounds, parent education, and mentoring support. All women facing unintended or crisis pregnancy situations are welcome. There are no fees for any WCS programs and services.

Woman’s Choice Services (WCS) began in 2005 as a concrete response to the Catholic Call to Life. The mission of Woman’s Choice Services is to promote the transcendent value of all human life and restore the dignity of women by respecting motherhood. Through our mission WCS works to preserve life, provide options, education, help and service to women at risk.
Our two centers offer free pregnancy tests, limited ultrasounds, consultations on the preservation of life and options available, parent education, mentoring and post-abortion recovery assistance and support. WCS’ role is to provide a support system that gives women unbiased facts in a loving, life-affirming environment.
