Our Story

Project CHOICES is a free, two (2) session program designed to assist women in making healthier choices related to alcohol, sex, and birth control. If you are a woman between the ages of 14 and 44 you may be eligible to participate. To learn more about Project CHOICES, or to join, contact us at 716-831-2298 or visit our website at www.UMaketheChoice.com.

We have served hundreds of WNY women by providing them with personal feedback on their alcohol consumption, the costs associated with it, and options on how to manage alcohol in a low-risk way. We inform you about birth control opportunities that you may not be aware of, and the risks to a baby born exposed to alcohol: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Participating in Project CHOICES does not indicate that you have a “problem”. Our mission is to spread education and awareness. “Drinking and Doing it Deserves a Discussion”.

In addition to the education, we give you $40 in gift cards for completing the program and we meet you where you are: That could be a library, a Tim Horton’s, or any other public setting. You choose Where. You choose How. You choose When.

That’s why it’s called Project CHOICES.
