Pregnancy Matters opened in January 1980 in Carbondale by a group of concerned individuals who wanted to help those facing an untimely pregnancy. In 1989, the agency opened its Marion extension office.

Our offices serve individuals and families each year from 12 different southern Illinois counties. We help people regardless of their place of residence, marital status, race, religion, or socio- economic status.

Our organization is governed by a Board of Directors. Their experience and expertise help guide the decisions that determine our policies, procedures, and services.

Our Advisory Board gives us key advice in their respective area of expertise, lends counsel to our future vision, and provides many leadership gifts.

  our staff  

Our medical staff includes a Medical Director to oversee our free sonogram services. We have volunteer nurses who gather medical histories from our clients, provide patient education, and answer questions to assist in maintaining a healthy pregnancy. Our ultrasound technicians volunteer once a week to confirm a viable pregnancy, make referrals for prenatal care, etc.

Our directors train and oversee our volunteer staff, as well as play a vital role in fundraising and community awareness activities.

  United Way of Marion, Carbondale, Murphysboro, Franklin County, and Union County
  Human Life Foundation
