Parenting? Adoption? What’s next?

We are here to help you.

CFC’s Pregnancy Counseling Program is open to anyone struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, for whom a pregnancy represents a concern due to the age and/or marital status of the parents or because of other factors, which lead prospective parents (whether married or not) to question whether they wish to raise the child. A client’s eligibility for service is not based on their decision to parent the child or to make an adoption plan. This service is open to any individual or family residing in the service area of the Diocese of Rochester.
