Weekly Insights: A Caring Center for Women
A Caring Center for Women exists to provide on-going services to pregnant mothers in need on a free and confidential basis without regard to income, race, or religion in a welcoming atmosphere of unconditional love and non-judgmental support. Free pregnancy testing, “on-site" ultrasound, pregnancy counseling by a trained counselor and educational classes are offered all women (and their families) to educate them on their options and their care of themselves and their baby. One example of how A Caring Center for Women helps economically disadvantaged residents is their Free Women's Wellness Program. This program provides any adult woman who does not have health insurance with a free wellness check up, blood work, immunizations and a follow-up appointment as needed.
Weekly Insights works in conjunction with Indian River Indicators. Indian River Indicators was launched in June 2021 and originated after the completion of the 2019 Indian River Community Needs Assessment. It provides key data and information about our community that is updated annually and can be used to support and sustain proven programs. It can also be used by community leaders to develop policy, promote promising practices and inspire innovation that can lead to solutions to persistent community challenges. Indian River Community Foundation holds monthly informational sessions to introduce the community to this new resource. The next session will be held on Tuesday, January 4th at 4pm via zoom. Please email Foundation Coordinator, Chiaka Nwosu at firstname.lastname@example.org to attend a session.
