Wakota – Our Mission & History

Wakota was organized in 1976 by two physicians and a group of local citizens. Their mission was to “help anyone in need of health care and basic social services from conception onward.” As Wakota has grown and evolved over time, our focus has been on the needs of pregnant women and their families. Wakota is committed to the  truth that every individual has the right to life from conception to natural death. We seek to offer compassionate help and hope, enabling positive life-affirming choices to all who have been touched by pregnancy. Our mission adheres to the teachings of the Catholic Church. We serve all without discrimination.

We are proud to be an affilitate of The Guiding Star Project whose focus is on holistic women’s health care; education about fertility, breastfeeding and more.  We are growing, our services are expanding.  It is an exciting time for Wakota.

Wakota helps families every day.  Our services offered are growing;  we are serving more families.
