Volunteers are the heartbeat of Care Net Pregnancy Services! Every day men and women come to Care Net looking for help, information, and someone to accept them as they are and help them get where they are going. People like you are needed to meet the needs of our clients! We believe God has called us to express His love to our neighbors and we are looking for men and women who share that passion.
No special experience or prior training is needed to join our staff – just a non-judgmental attitude and a desire to help men and women facing unplanned pregnancies. All Care Net volunteers are carefully screened and trained to enable them to have the maximum impact in ministry. You are never too old (or too young) to be part of what is happening here!
