About PLAN

Our mission is to make Northern Virginia a place where every child is loved, every woman is cared for, and every family is thriving.  We do this by fostering collaboration among life-affirming organizations to maximize awareness of and access to our services and additional public assistance programs.

Our Objectives

Objective 1

Engage with Life-Affirming Organizations

Fully educate supporters on opportunities to engage with life-affirming organizations in their community. Those opportunities include involvement as donors, volunteers, and (when applicable) clients/patients.

Objective 2

Help Women and Families Find Resources

Help women and families find resources and social services that help their health and relationships flourish. There is a special focus on women with unplanned pregnancies.

Objective 3

Build Public Awareness of Life-Affirming Options

Build public awareness that comprehensive life-affirming options exist for women in unplanned pregnancies, and show that we care about not just the child, but all the needs of the woman, family, and community.
