VERO BEACH | Although A Caring Center for Women has been supported by a host of life advocates who pray and help where needed, financial sustainability has always been a walk of faith.
The center, located at 1986 31st Ave., Suite 100, in Vero Beach, offers free services, including counseling, referrals to social services, medical-grade pregnancy tests, proof of pregnancy, ultrasounds, adoption guidance, prenatal development/educational parenting classes and baby supplies. Its roots go back 10 years, when a group from the Catholic community gathered to establish a Catholic-guided pregnancy help center in Vero Beach.
It took time to launch, but they did not give up, following God’s will in saying “yes” along the way, amid occasional detours. Respect Life volunteers from the northern portion of the diocese, including Holy Cross, St. Helen, St. John of the Cross and St. Sebastian, laid the groundwork alongside the Knights of Columbus and local Councils of Catholic Women.
