Our Mission

Our Mission

The mission of Vida Medical Clinic and Support Services is to provide medical, mentoring, and material support to empower individuals to make life-affirming decisions. A Christian, nonprofit organization based in Appleton, Wisconsin, our free services and compassionate care ensure men and women feel supported when facing an unplanned pregnancy or parenting an infant or small children under challenging circumstances. Our vision is that our community will embrace a life-affirming culture that promotes and defends the God-given value of all human persons.

Founded in 1983 by five passionate advocates for the good health and well-being of women and their babies, our organization walks with both women and men through trials and tribulations by offering hope, care, and compassion. Vida firmly believes women and men should be empowered to make life-affirming decisions and to lead joyful, productive, and healthy lives as individuals, partners, parents, and members of society. We share the love of Christ with others through this ministry. 

To maximize our impact and empower life-affirming decisions, Vida has four main programs under one organizational umbrella: the medical clinic, support services, material support, and community outreach. This comprehensive approach and network of support helps us walk with men, women, and families throughout their pregnancy or parenting journeys. 

Friends of Vida support our work and mission, whether through financial gift, in-kind donations, prayer, volunteering, advocacy, or other support. Life is a precious gift, and we are proud that Friends of Vida claim our ministry as their own and choose to be an integral part of building a community that recognizes and respects the life of each and every individual. Read more about the impact of our work and ministry in our 2021 Impact Report here.

Together, we’re touching hearts and saving lives. Let’s love life together!
