Our story began over 35 years ago when one woman decided to do something about the need she saw in her community. Little did she know how her small steps of faith would impact countless lives and inspire new ministries to begin!
In 1985, a woman named Donna Beckett founded Niagara Life Centre, a Crisis Pregnancy Centre, in response to the plight of young mothers with unplanned pregnancies. It soon became evident that an unplanned pregnancy was only one of many other problems in the lives of young women in the Niagara Peninsula. The Centre, therefore, began to provide long-term counselling for them and their families for their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual needs.
In 1988 - a satellite centre was launched in Welland, which attained independence in 2001, under the name, Elisha House Pregnancy & Family Support Centre, which included both a pregnancy support and biblical counselling department.
In 2022 - The Elisha House board scaled back operations & hired a new non-profit organization, Clarity Pregnancy Options, to fulfil it's pregnancy mission & vision.
