Greetings from the Director's Desk:

Whenever the new calendar year begins I get so excited about what the coming year holds. I am also so grateful that we start each year with Sanctity of Life month. As you take moments to ponder and pray throughout this month, please keep Care Net and our clients in your prayers. At Care Net, we believe life is so precious from beginning to end and we strive to walk alongside parents who come into our office through each part of their journey. 

One way we support parents along their journey is our new "Bright Course" lessons that are used in our Life Steps program. These videos are online and can be watched by clients from their phones. It has been a great way to continue our Life Steps outreach during COVID. We are currently looking for volunteers that can take an hour or so each week to mentor women in our Life Steps education.

I am so grateful for partners like you who stand arm in arm with us by donating material goods, money, and time to support parents and kids in need.

Choose Life!

We wanted to remind everyone that the "Choose Life" license plates are available across Montana! Proceeds from the sale of this plate in and around Missoula County will benefit Care Net Pregnancy Center. To purchase this license plate, visit https://dojmt.gov/driving/plate-designs-and-fees/serviceorganizations-associations/ and scroll down until you get to Options Clinic, the administrator of the Choose Life license plates for Montana. Care Net will receive $25 for any license plates sold within Missoula County or surrounding areas. What a great way to highlight the cause of LIFE in Montana!
