Our vision is to one day reach all abortion-minded and abortion-vulnerable individuals throughout Minnesota with comprehensive pregnancy-related services and the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

New Life Family Services provides life-affirming services through the following programs:

Pregnancy Centers
New Life operates four pregnancy center locations, known as First Care Pregnancy Center, throughout the Twin Cities and Rochester communities. Each center is equipped with social workers, nurses, and trained staff who provide free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, pregnancy-related counseling, referrals, resources, and more. All of our pregnancy centers also offer our Every Family parenting support program which allows families to earn practical items such as clothing, car seats, diapers, and more. In addition, STI testing and treatment is available at three of our locations; Minneapolis, Richfield, and Rochester.

Licensed Adoption Services
New Life Adoptions has been licensed to provide adoption services since 1980. Through our unique two-worker model, we serve both birth parents and adoptive families independently with separate adoption and birth parent social workers, ensuring each party in the adoption receives the best care and advocate throughout their entire adoption journey. New Life Adoptions facilitates full adoption services and partial services to allow for complete customization based on each individuals needs. In addition, New Life Adoptions is also licensed to provide embryo adoption.

Post-Abortion Recovery
Through Conquerors, New Life restores hope after abortion to men and women ready to seek healing from the damage a past abortion has caused in their lives. Conquerors offers both group sessions and individual mentoring. Our Conquerors curriculum is used around the world to provide hope and healing to hundreds of women and men every year.

At New Life Family Services, we compassionately open our doors and our hearts to women and men who believe abortion is the "only" solution to an unplanned pregnancy. Through practical and spiritual counsel, we provide education and support with the hope each client will make a life-affirming decision for their unborn child.

Mission statement


To honor the sanctity of human life by assisting clients in life-affirming decisions with the love and compassion of Christ.


We believe that God is the author of life and has a plan for each life, therefore, we do not provide or refer for abortions.

We seek to empower our clients in their decision-making process by offering information about all pregnancy-related options. This includes medically accurate information about abortion, a realistic and thorough examination of parenting and adoption, and access to ultrasound.

We are committed to offering support to those facing unplanned pregnancy or struggling with a past abortion experience without judgment or condemnation.

We are committed to assisting our clients in choosing between adoption and parenting without bias toward either option.
