History

In May 1985, a group of citizens concerned with the plight of women in crisis pregnancy situations met with the goal of organizing a life-affirming center to provide emotional, spiritual and practical help. As a result, Peninsula Crisis Pregnancy Center was opened on September 29, 1986. In 2005 we changed our name to Care Net Resource Pregnancy Centers, Inc. Our first location was in Hampton off of Cunningham drive. In 2008 our primary center moved Main St. in Newport News. In 2013, we relocated our main center moved to its current site on Jefferson Avenue, near City Center.
