What is our vision for North Carolina?
- Women –pregnant or suspecting they are – will find the help they need to make healthy, well informed choices for their future.
- Pregnancy care organizations are even better equipped to offer women, father, and families quality services in a professional, compassionate manner. AND
- Individuals and organizational partners impacting the state with the Culture of Life!
It’s been exciting to be part of LifeLink Carolina (dba of CPCF) as we have become a catalyst for unity among the pregnancy care organizations in North Carolina. The growing need for a coordinated voice for these valuable life-affirming ministries is the challenging path ahead!
LifeLink Carolina has been around from the earliest days of pregnancy resource centers in the state. Organized in 1987 by a small group of pregnancy center directors who had the vision for offering training and networking opportunities among pregnancy centers, adoption agencies and maternity homes, the committee launched two statewide conferences and a newsletter.
In 1998 CPCF was officially incorporated as a 501(c) 3 nonprofit. Barbara Stevenson, a key leader from its beginnings, became the first part time state director.
By 2010 our programs and services had expanded to a new level, and it became apparent that the state director position should become full time. At that point, Bobbie Meyer left her position as executive director of a large pregnancy resource center to become the state director full time. We look forward with anticipation to the journey ahead!
