Care Net Offers Options and More for Women

The Care Net Pregnancy Center and Family Support Services Office offer area girls and women, who find themselves in unplanned pregnancy situations, options counseling and material supports until their children reach school age.  All services are free of charge and there are no income requirements/restrictions. 

Executive Director Anna Anderson said, “There seems to be some confusion after the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court on 06/24/22.  Some folks think this means Care Net closed.  We are open and offer the same services we have since 1988.”  Specifically, the Care Net Pregnancy Center offers girls and women free pregnancy tests, options counseling for unplanned pregnancies, prenatal care classes, childbirth education classes, breastfeeding education, parenting classes, community resource referrals, adoption referrals, post-abortion healing classes, pregnancy loss support, sexual risk education, and more. 

Material supports are available through the Care Net Family Support Services Office.  Items such as clothing for preemie infants through 4T for all seasons, cribs, high chairs, booster seats, strollers, pack-n-plays, bassinettes, car seats, crib bedding, diapers, formula, baby food, toys, books, and much more are offered.  Anderson said, “Basically anything a new mom or parents of toddlers need, we generally have for our clients.”

The main office of Care Net is located at 1512 – 11th Street in Monroe and is open 10am to 4pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Our Family Support Services Office is located in the Hope Community Center at 2902 – 13th Street in Monroe.  Hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon to 3pm.  Appointments and walk-ins are welcome.  Appointments can be made by calling 608-325-5051.
