A Word From Our Development Director
Those of you who have followed Care Net Peninsula for the past 32 years know that, like any organization, change has and will continue to happen. Change often takes us out of our ‘comfort zones’, but when we are focused on honoring the Lord, it makes all of the difference.
As the Development Director for almost 5 years at Care Net, it has been a blessing to see all the amazing growth the Lord has produced.
We have gone from offering life-saving sonograms 2.5 days a week with one nurse and one ultrasound machine to 5 days a week with 2 full-time nurses and 2 ultrasound machines! The number of women we have served has more than doubled during my time here. Best of all, many women made decisions to let their babies live.
It is bittersweet for me to move on from this role. I am leaving to stay at home full-time with my 2-year-old son. My heart will always remain here and I look forward to seeing where the Lord takes Care Net in the coming years. I remain committed to the mission to bring practical help and hope in Jesus to women facing pregnancy decisions on the Virginia Peninsula. In fact, having the opportunity to see how the ‘engine runs’ has excited me more to continue my personal partnership in this fight for Life.
The sacrifices you make — as donors, volunteers, and community members — so that we can offer these services to the community are precious to us and the Lord. This ministry would not exist without you. I have been truly blown away by your generosity to achieve the incredible accomplishments that have been made here in the past 5 years. God bless you!

Tragically, 15 children in Virginia died from Covid-19. But since March 2020, 300 times that number of babies died from abortion . . . on the Peninsula. That’s over 4,000 preborn lives taken from our community in less than 3 years. But it would have been more.
