Catholic Charities is thrilled to partner with the Port St. Lucie Business Women in support of our pregnancy care center in Ft. Pierce. The center, operated by our Birthline Lifeline Program, offers pregnancy care services free of charge to all clients who meet basic criteria. At the pregnancy care centers, women coping with an unplanned pregnancy can access compassionate counseling regarding adoption, alternatives to pregnancy terminations and more. When a client who is abortion-minded sees her baby with an ultrasound, she has a change of heart and chooses life!
Below is a list of services we provide through our three pregnancy care centers:
- Free ultrasounds and pregnancy testing
- Prenatal care referrals
- Pro-life education
- Abortion alternative counseling
- Adoption referrals
- Parenting Classes
- Fertility Awareness Education
- Material assistance
- Assistance may include maternity clothes, baby apparel and layettes. When available, car seats, strollers, cribs, baby food, formula and diapers are provided.
- 24-Hour Support Hotline for clients: 561-278-0880
Clients are provided with contact information and necessary documentation for Medicaid/medical coverage, referrals and other available services within the county and/or Catholic Charities.
