Houston, TX 77069
nandakirkpatrick@carenetnw.com


1. More Volunteers to train as peer counselors. Having enough volunteers is the rate-limiting component of our ministry. More volunteers means more women who can be booked in for an appointment.
2. More RN's to train as sonographers. We provide the training to provide limited obstetrical ultrasounds in return for a weekly commitment of a few hours.  Even though elective abortion is no longer legal in Texas, abortion is still readily accessible, so ultrasound images are still critical to Care Net’s ministry.
3. Volunteers who value prayer. We are always in need of the undergirding of prayer for protection of the ministry--staff, volunteers, women seeking help, facilities. Praying that God would direct women and families who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy to Care Net is something anyone can do—even from home!
