We currently support seven active Guiding Star location affiliates in five states! However, there are many more “twinkles” on our map that are in the development process.
The Guiding Star Center 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. Each of our affiliates is at a different stage of development and moving forward within their community in a unique way. 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.
Our official Guiding Star locations are noted on this map above. Click here for information on how you can bring a Guiding Star location to your area or connect with those already working to bring a center to your area!
Since its founding in 1976—by two physicians and a group of local citizens—Wakota has focused on addressing the needs of pregnant women and their children. For more than four decades, we have promoted and provided positive alternatives to abortion, along with the support and assistance women need to successfully carry their pregnancies to term, care for their infants, and build healthy families. We offer women a continuum of health and wellness services, from natural fertility and family planning to pregnancy and childbirth, to breastfeeding and postpartum, to family life. We are looking forward to expanding our medical and mental health services in late 2022.
Guiding Star Siouxland is Building a Culture of Life through supporting and educating women to understand, embrace, and love their natural bodies. Founded in 2016 as Guiding Star Orange City, their services began to grow and flourish throughout the entire Siouxland community, which led to the change of name and location in February of 2022.
Located in Sioux Center, Iowa, Guiding Star Siouxland has grown out of Orange City FertilityCare which began in 2012 . Orange City FertilityCare teaches the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaPro Technology. Through these Natural Fertility regulation programs, the local community became interested in learning more about natural fertility. It has been a natural progression to begin the process of opening a Guiding Star Center in their new location in Sioux Center, IA. Guiding Star Siouxland is so very proud and honored to be a part of the Guiding Star Project Family.
