For more than 20 years, the Pregnancy Support Center of Warren County has been helping women experiencing crisis pregnancies and their families. These are teens, single working parents, couples who have lost jobs or grandparents who are supporting grandchildren all in unexpected and overwhelming circumstances, and most with limited finances and support systems.
The center provides free materials, from maternity clothing to baby clothes, car seats and pack-n-plays or cribs for those who qualify, to blankets, diapers, newborn care items and more. Whenever possible, we directly connect them with County resources which can include medical care, social services, legal aid, adoption or foster care and housing for those who are homeless.
Through each opportunity, volunteers can share the love of Christ through support and guidance during a challenging decision-making period. We are in need of volunteers to continue to offer current operational hours two times weekly (scheduled for 1-2 times monthly). Other volunteer areas include expansion to monthly evening hours, occasional transportation to local appointments, scheduled nursery care for those wishing to earn GEDs or diplomas, and mentors for "Showers of Love" newborn and parenting education programs. If you are interested in learning more or want to become involved, call 723-4357 or email email@example.com and leave your contact information.

Become a CASA volunteer and be rewarded with some of the most powerful and fulfilling experiences you can find. CASA is the only organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed "friends of the court". Volunteers fit well with the court as the American Justice System is built on juries; a body of citizens sworn to give a true verdict according to the evidence presented in a court of law. In 1990 with the inclusion of the CASA Program in the Victims of Child Abuse Act, Congress affirmed the use of volunteers in our otherwise closed juvenile court systems and made provisions for the growth of our volunteer movement nationwide. Locally CASA of Warren and Forest Counties has 23 volunteers serving 23 children. Your involvement will make a direct impact on a child's life and perhaps generations to come. CASA of Warren and Forest Counties welcomes volunteers from all cultures, professions, ethnic and educational backgrounds. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help contact CASA of Warren and Forest Counties at 723-4434.
