Our Affiliates

We are excited to currently support six active affiliates in five states! There are many more “twinkles” on our map that are in the development process. 

Our official affiliate locations are noted on this map by the solid four point star seen in our logo.  Locations on the map showing twinkles are areas where we have an official contact person in place and interest is growing toward a new center.  Click the map for more information on how you can add your community to the map or connect with those already working to bring a center to your area!

Each of our affiliates is at a different stage of development and moving forward within their community in a unique way.

The Guiding Star model is one of flexibility.  By giving our affiliates the freedom to partner with their community, move forward building relationships, and address their greatest needs at a local level, we are able to support each community in its uniqueness while maintaining consistency within our mission and vision. While the path may look different from city to city, all of our affiliates are working toward the same ultimate goal – doing their part to be leaders within their community, uniting local organizations, and lighting the way to a culture of life.

Tampa, FL

tampalogopng1In March of 2015 LifeChoices Women’s Care, a thriving pregnancy resource center, affiliated with us in an effort to expand their services and embrace a holistic model of care for women by bringing together their local resources under the Guiding Star model.

Life Choices Transitional Logo

Because of their existing work in the local community under the name Life Choices Women’s Care they have opted to continue using that name for the pregnancy center services, and all expanded care under the name Guiding Star Tampa. This is an option for pregnancy centers wishing to affiliate with Guiding Star to expand the scope of care in their center. Their transitional logo can be seen to the right.

Cedar Valley, Iowa

Guiding Star Cedar Valley officially began operations as a Guiding Star Center September 8, 2017. Prior, the center was operating under the Guiding Star Model but all services were not yet in place. Now that the full facility is philosophically aligned, the center can promote a culture of life with more vigor and intensity. Guiding Star Cedar Valley does this by offering community classes that focus on womanhood and motherhood. Currently, Guiding Star Cedar Valley is partnered with a medical practice, a fertilitycare center, a natural birth educator, doulas, and a chiropractor. The center hopes to expand services to include expanded pregnancy resources, life coaching, and counseling-specially for the postpartum woman. At the beginning stages, Guiding Star Cedar Valley is assessing the community to ensure the needs are being met in a wholistic, empowering, and life-affirming way. The center looks forward to its progress and is excited to be on this journey with so many pro-peace individuals.
