MEET CARE NET
By Care Net
VISION: Care Net envisions a culture where women and men faced with pregnancy decisions are transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ and empowered to choose life for their unborn children and abundant life for their families.
MISSION: Acknowledging that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection, Care Net offers compassion, hope, and help to anyone considering abortion by presenting them with realistic alternatives and Christ-centered support through our life-affirming network of pregnancy centers, organizations, and individuals.
HISTORY: Care Net was founded in 1975 as the Christian Action Council by the renowned Dr. Harold O. J. Brown. Care Net’s beginnings were influenced by former U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. C. Everett Koop and Christian scholar, Dr. Francis Schaeffer.
From its earliest days, Care Net has sought to engage faithful men and women in promoting life-affirming decisions. That engagement has taken many forms.
In the 1980s, the organization’s mission crystallized into establishing pregnancy centers and equipping them to empower women to make life-affirming decisions in response to an unplanned pregnancy. The organization subsequently adopted the name “Care Net”.
Today, Care Net is an expansive network, advocating for more than 1,100 independent, affiliated pregnancy centers across North America, as well as operating Pregnancy Decision Line to reach women and men at their point of need.
Care Net works to end abortion, not primarily through political action but by building a culture where woman and men receive all the support they needs to welcome their children and create their own success stories. By empowering women and men to make courageous, life-affirming choices, Care Net and our affiliate pregnancy centers save lives every single day.
Even if the legal status of abortion changes, there will always be a need for faithful men and women to support those facing pregnancy decisions. You can be part of the solution to abortion, starting now, by supporting Care Net.
According to TIME magazine, pregnancy centers are playing an important role in why abortion rates have lowered in recent years: “That would seem to be evidence that the quiet campaign for women’s hearts and minds, conducted in thousands of crisis pregnancy centers around the country, on billboards, phone banks and websites, is having an effect…”
