What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

With nearly 1 million abortions taking place each year in the United States, Care Net seeks to offer compassion, hope, and help to anyone considering abortion by presenting them with realistic alternatives and Christ-centered support through a life-affirming network of pregnancy centers, churches, organizations, and individuals. We provide, material, emotional, and spiritual support to women and men facing pregnancy decisions so they can make fully informed choices around their unplanned pregnancies. Our medical pregnancy centers conduct free ultrasounds and other services to help women and men make decisions about their pregnancies. As a Christian ministry, we also share the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ to enable those we serve to not only have life, but to have abundant life and to be connected to their local churches for ongoing support and discipleship.
