What We Do

Here at Harbor Lights Pregnancy and Information Center we strive to provide you with valid pregnancy and parental choices. We also provide education and spiritual support for the development of healthy children, families, and communities.

As an independent, HIPPA compliant facility, we provide free supportive services to mothers, fathers, and family caregivers of Iosco and surrounding counties.  Our free services are provided until the youngest child reaches five years old.  

We know that choices during an unplanned, and sometimes a planned pregnancy are difficult. We offer a caring, non-judgmental and confidential environment for you to explore your options. You may feel anxious and overwhelmed.  However, you do not have to walk through this journey alone.  We care and we can help!
