Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to schedule an appointment?
No. Walk-ins are welcome. However, we ask you do not wait until the day’s office hours are nearly over to come in because we want to spend as much time with you as we can without you or our staff feeling rushed.

How long will my appointment take?
The length of time varies depending on the services you request and the questions you have.  Generally, you can plan to spend about 30 minutes with our lay counselors.

What kind of pregnancy test do you offer?
Carlisle Area Family Life Center offers a free, urine-based clinical pregnancy test.  This test is designed to determine the presence of the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin (hcg), in urine.  The manufacturer states that this test is 97% to 99% accurate seven to ten days after conception.  This test will offer a positive or negative indication of pregnancy, but a final diagnosis can only be made by a doctor.

How much do you charge?
All of our services are provided free of charge, regardless of your income level.

Where are you located?
We offer pregnancy help at 155 N. Hanover Street in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. We generally serve Cumberland, Perry and Adams counties, but we serve anyone regardless of residency.

Are you a religious organization?
No.  We do receive some financial support from area churches, but we are not affiliated with any particular religion or faith. We serve everyone who asks for help, regardless of religious affiliation.  All are welcome at the Carlisle Area Family Life Center.
