MISSION + HISTORY

Our Mission

Ending abortion in Houston... peacefully and prayerfully.

Our Vision

A community that loves, respects, and protects every human life from conception until natural death.

Our History

Founded in 2002 by recent Texas A&M grads, the Houston Coalition for Life is a ministry of prayer and assistance for abortion-vulnerable women throughout Houston. What started as a dedicated group of prayer warriors organizing churches around the city to have a peaceful presence outside abortion facilities has now blossomed into a robust support system for women in crisis.

We currently operate four mobile pregnancy centers parked in strategic locations that provide free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds, and free confidential counseling to help support mothers in difficult situations. In addition to those free services, we also offer free parenting classes, baby supplies, and ongoing support at our office location.

In 2011, we launched the very first mobile pregnancy center in Texas, the Big Blue Bus, which is parked across the street from Planned Parenthood on I45 and for nearly 12 years served as the last line of defense before a pregnant mother met the abortionist.  We are currently still parked across the street from Planned Parenthood offering women and their preborn children the life-affirming options they deserve.

In 2014, we launched the Baby Blue Bus following the dynamic success of Big Blue, and it provides all the same services.

In 2015, we began offering pregnancy tests at our office location and launched our Curriculum of Life Program which provides weekly classes on topics like Childbirth, Breastfeeding, Infant CPR, and more. For every class a mother attends, she receives a free pack of diapers and other items she might need.

In 2019, we received an ultrasound machine for our office so that we could provide the full range of free services to women in our T.C. Jester location.

In 2022, we launched our third bus, the Little One, after realizing our need for a smaller vehicle to fit into tighter streets and venues.

In 2023, our fourth mobile center, Little Two, was launched to cover the west side of Houston and to fill in for other buses in case of mechanical issues so that we can always be there for women in crisis pregnancies.

For over 20 years, the Houston Coalition for Life has been serving women in our community and promoting life-affirming alternatives to abortion. We are proud to say that 93% of the moms we serve CHOOSE LIFE.
