CareNet has been working hard to expand into the northwestern area of DuPage County. The perfect location for the new center is being actively sought in the general West Chicago area. This new regional center would provide access to CareNet services to approximately 39,000 women aged 15-34 who may be in need of help in an unplanned pregnancy. This new ministry center will join the other regional centers of Wood Dale, Glen Ellyn, and Naperville as well as CareNet’s Express Center in downtown Elmhurst. CareNet has long recognized this area as being underserved and is very excited to be able to more forward to reach vulnerable women in DuPage, Kane and Cook Counties. I promise to keep you informed as plans solidify in the next few months. I deeply appreciate your prayer for this new center as we move ahead.
CareNet’s bold vision is to eliminate the suffering from abortion in our community by providing life-affirming alternatives and support to women who experience an unplanned pregnancy. Since its inception in 1981, CareNet has expanded with additional locations that have provided easier access to women in need of CareNet’s excellent services. Where a woman goes for help with an unplanned pregnancy is critical to her decision regarding the pregnancy. Statistics have shown that the pregnant women who choose to go to Planned Parenthood will most certainly choose abortion. However, for the women who visit a CareNet center, the majority will choose to carry the pregnancy. Easier access to services combined with sophisticated internet advertising has brought more pregnant women than ever coming to CareNet who believe that abortion is their only choice. Now CareNet is poised to completing a new phase of our strategic plan – opening a new center in the northwest part of DuPage County. More information on this vital new ministry opportunity will be forthcoming in the next few months.
