The vision of Caris is that through our holistic pregnancy counseling approach, we aspire to be a leader in addressing the cultural, social, spiritual, and economic essentials involved in unplanned pregnancy, ensuring that women and children thrive. We understand that the issue of unplanned pregnancy and abortion is both complicated and nuanced. We daily seek to reflect the heart of God by extending His grace, love, compassion and care to any woman who walks through our door, regardless of her pregnancy decision.
