About Caris Pregnancy and Counseling
Caris is a Pro-Grace® organization. We are a faith-based non-profit counseling organization, serving women who have been, are, or are potentially at risk of facing an unexpected pregnancy. We offer open and non-judgmental support, regardless of a woman’s faith background, or the decision she makes about her pregnancy.
The Caris vision is to see both women and children thrive during and after unplanned pregnancy. Through our Pro-Grace approach, we are telling a new story about unplanned pregnancy so women can see a third option besides abortion or overwhelming struggle as a mom. We do this through our counseling programs and by connecting women to communities of acceptance and support.
We provide our services free of charge. Our services include pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, professional counseling, support groups, and connection to resources.
