Next Steps for Parenting

Every woman receives an opportunity to speak with a counselor regarding her feelings and questions about each of her options. If you decide to parent, you will be invited to join one of our Connection Groups for pregnant and parenting women at one of our locations. Your counselor will also ask you questions to understand what you need and then connect you to community programs and agencies who specialize in meeting those needs. We refer to the following:

  • Physicians
  • Insurance programs
  • Housing
  • Baby items
  • Parenting classes
  • Job training

Because Caris is a professional counseling organization, we don’t provide any medical or social services, but we have an extensive referral network we can connect you with.

If you have more questions, our counselors are available. Please contact us.

 

Next Steps for Adoption

Every woman receives an opportunity to speak with a counselor regarding her feelings and questions about each of her options. If you are considering placing for adoption, you will receive a referral to adoption agencies that are located in your community or are most accessible to you. The adoption agencies we refer to have ongoing support for women who place for adoption. Even so, you are welcome to come back to Caris for any support or resources you would need afterward. All of our services are available to you, including counseling, resources, and referrals.

Because Caris is a professional counseling organization and not an adoption agency, we do not facilitate adoptions, nor are we affiliated with any adoption agencies.

If you have more questions, our counselors are available. Please contact us.

 

Next Steps for Abortion

Every woman receives an opportunity to talk with a counselor regarding her feelings and questions about each of her options. If you decide to have an abortion, you are welcome to come back to Caris for any support or resources you would need afterward. All of our services are available to you, including counseling, resources, and referrals.

Because Caris is a professional counseling organization and not a medical provider, we do not provide abortion services. We can refer you to a local physician with whom you can consult about any pregnancy-related medical needs.

If you have more questions, our counselors are available. Please contact us.
