How we help
Our goal is to share the love of Christ by offering life-affirming resources to those facing pregnancy decisions, to speak for the preborn child, and offer real choices that focus on the well-being of both the mother and her unborn child. We encourage women and men to make wise sexual health decisions. Read our commitment of care and competence.
First Care Clinic
Our nationally accredited medical clinic is a member of the National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics and offers the following medical services at no charge to women seeking our services:
We do not offer, recommend or refer women for abortions or abortifacients.
Our education program offers classes on pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, infant safety, and parenting. Both group and one-on-one classes are offered. Our incentive program encourages participation by providing “Care Cash” that can be used to purchase baby clothing and supplies in our Beginnings Boutique, thanks to donations provided by the community.
Being Dad is a program designed to equip men to become engaged and involved fathers. Men meet one on one with Dad's to help them become the father their child needs.
Medical professionals share risks associated with sexual choices and teach the skills needed for healthy relationships and establishing boundaries. Patients receiving STI testing have an opportunity to re-examine their lifestyle. We partner with local schools to offer STI education to middle and high school students to help them make informed and safe life choices.
The Elizabeth House
The Elizabeth House provides a safe home where pregnant women can live free of charge in a structured, goal-oriented program designed to help them become self-sufficient and healthy in body, mind, and spirit. Our maternity home is a member of the National Maternity Housing Coalition. Women who are homeless, nearly homeless, or living in unsafe or insecure housing can make a new start. Young, single women develop the necessary skills to achieve spiritual, mental, physical and economic success – impacting generations to come.
Eagle Harbor Apartments
In 2014, we moved beyond pregnancy-related housing with the construction of Eagle Harbor Apartments. Thanks to a generous donation of land adjacent to the Care Net headquarters, as well as tax credit financing and the collaborative efforts of many in the community, Eagle Harbor Apartments provides a modern and affordable home for 36 families—families that can include graduates of The Elizabeth House.
