Care Net affiliates provide vital services to women and families, including parenting classes, medically referenced education about pregnancy and sexual health, STD / STI testing, pregnancy confirmation exams and ultrasounds, mentoring, emotional support, spiritual encouragement and practical resources (like diapers, clothing, new cribs and car seats, and other needed items).”
