The Life Choices Pregnancy Support Center is now open at the organization’s new location, 66 Sunrise Park, Winchester.

The center was founded in 2013 by Dr. Bryan Myers, Jodi Gardner and Gina Howard.

Life Choices moved into its new location at the beginning of March.

“God has provided the space for us to be more efficient and to invest deeper in our community,” Executive Director Donna Malone said.

The center offers pregnancy tests, limited obstetric ultrasounds, parenting classes and a baby boutique for parents to shop.

“All services offered to our clients are free of charge,” Malone said.

The hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Life Choices is a nonprofit with 501(c)(3) status, and all donations are tax-deductible.

“In 2017, Life Choices expanded to Coffee County, and in 2018, we expanded again to Grundy County, and it all started here in Franklin County,” Malone said.

Along with Executive Director Malone, Elizabeth Padgett serves as the Franklin County center director, Dr. Bryan Myers is the medical director, Brenda Williams is the nurse manager and Gina Howard is the board treasurer.

“Life Choices is supported by many staff, volunteers, board members and donors,” Malone added. “Thank you to all who have made this possible.”
