First Choice Clinic has been serving the greater Red Wing, MN community since 2006. Our mission is to educate and empower our community to make healthy, life affirming choices. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization, offering medical, education & support services to anyone in need. First Choice Clinic is able to offer all services to our clients at no cost thanks to our generous donors.
First Choice Clinic specializes in working with people in crisis situations, especially when an unplanned pregnancy or children under the age of three are involved. We provide care to men, women and families from a wide range of ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Though many of our services are geared towards women, we also have male mentors and services especially crafted for men. We understand the important role fathers in the lives of their children, we strive to empower fathers to establish healthy relationships with their children, regardless of the family dynamics.
In 2018 we welcomed 15 babies into the world bringing our organization total to 209 since 2006. We performed 90 pregnancy tests and 106 ultrasounds, and had 110 appointments for Sexually Transmitted Disease testing, treatment and education. As well as being able to educate each one of these clients, we reached over 300 students with the encouraging message of sexual integrity and abstinence. Our incentivized parenting program, also known as “Earn While You Learn”, continues to be our most utilized program. We were able to meet one of our clients most basic needs by distributing over 14,000 diapers to more than 92 active clients.
In 2006 we opened as New Beginnings Family Services, a Pregnancy Resource Center offering educational and material assistance to those in need. In 2013 we changed our name to First Choice Clinic and expanded our services to include pregnancy testing and ultrasounds. We continued with the momentum by added testing and treatment for Sexually Transmitted Diseases in 2014.
