Unplanned or untimely pregnancy?

Carlisle Area Family Life Center is a pregnancy help center where anyone concerned about an unplanned or untimely pregnancy can find assistance as near as the telephone: 717-243-1918. Carlisle Area Family Life Center offers services to help the woman with her pregnancy, both emotionally and materially.

We start by listening with love and understanding. We don’t make decisions for you and we don’t pressure you. We work with you to meet your needs.

All of our services at Carlisle Area Family Life Center (CAFLC) are free and confidential.



Office hours remain 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For after-hour emergency needs only, please call our hotline at 800-848-LOVE.




We would like to thank Bruce Watkins and the Men’s Group of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Carlisle for hosting a successful charity golf tournament recently! The event, held at Mayapple Golf Course, brought in over $2,000 to our center!


A special note of gratitude must go to the Noontime Rotary Club of Carlisle for funding the recent renovations at our center. Thanks to the wonderful work of Matt Cloward and his crew from Cloward Building Concepts, we now have an awesome room to offer future ultrasound services and a fresh new look for our front offices. We cannot thank enough these groups and other community supporters for bringing us that much closer to fulfilling our dream!

Help With Pregnancy Decisions

Pregnant, or Know Someone Who Is?

When a woman thinks she’s pregnant, there are many things she might be feeling: joy, excitement, fear, sadness, confusion, panic, loneliness. Even in the best of circumstances, a pregnancy presents uncertainty. If you are pregnant or think you might be, we can offer you direction and support.

You are about to make some decisions that will have a profound effect on your life, your relationships, your emotional well-being, your body, and countless other aspects of your future. These decisions should be made only after you have learned as much as possible about your options. Educate yourself and choose what is best for you and your baby.
If you want free, confidential help for your pregnancy, call Carlisle Area Family Life Center.

5859hWould your church or organization like to host a baby bottle campaign or baby shower for us? Both projects are easy to facilitate and you would be helping us continue our community outreach as well as promote awareness of your group as well. Loose change collected in baby bottles and shower items collected for our layettes help us support a new mother who has nothing for her baby. If you’d like to help us make a mom smile, call our center at 243-6544.


ATTENTION BUSINESSES, ORGANIZATIONS & CHURCHES! Would you be willing to partner with us & Community Aid by having a clothing donation bin on your property? Community Aid has offered to give us a portion of the proceeds generated from clothing donations received at these bins. This would require NO MAINTENANCE on your part! Community Aid would regularly service the bins. If you are interested, please contact Lori at 243-6544.

Thank You For Your Continued Support!
