Care Net Pregnancy Resource Center

Organization Description: 

As an urban outreach Center, we provide a broad array of free services to the community. The activities and programming center around three main objectives: prevention, intervention, and restoration. Prevention and intervention services include counseling, legal and housing referrals, fatherhood initiatives, etc. Restoration services in the form of counseling in a safe, confidential and nurturing environment are provided to clients who are seeking solace following an abortion. We minister to them about God?s forgiveness and help them work through their feelings of shame and sadness and if allowed, encourage them to make healthier choices in the future.

We are able to administer limited medical services. Typical services include, but are not limited to pregnancy testing and confirmation; limited ultrasound (to estimate gestational age; confirm fetal cardiac activity; and detect potential miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy); medical consultation and follow-up calls to at-risk women by medical professionals. Upon seeing their baby during an ultrasound, a woman and man often make a connection that no longer makes abortion an option.

Care Net Atlanta is committed to working within its core competencies and avoiding a duplication of services. The agency therefore maintains informal and formal collaborative relationships with 14+ community service providers.
