Who We Are.
Care Net of Missoula exists to provide free support and assistance to anyone experiencing an unexpected pregnancy or sexual health issue.
Care Net of Missoula is a Christian, non-profit organization. We believe every person is worthy of receiving love, support, and holistic care that values the whole person (physical, emotional, intellectual, sexual, and spiritual). We are committed to providing information, physical and emotional support, and assistance to anyone experiencing an unexpected pregnancy or sexual health issue. We offer these services free of charge to anyone, regardless of personal history or beliefs.
Since 1978, Care Net of Missoula has endeavored to become and remain one of western Montana's foremost authorities on abortion issues, adoption information, and agency referrals. We diligently make every effort to ensure that all our information is current and accurate. Providing our services free of charge is only possible because of the dedication of our network of volunteers and financial supporters. Thank you all.
