Care Net of Carbon County is a 501(c)3 organization that is fully funded by private donations from individuals and churches.
With the exception of our director, associate director, administrative assistants, and store manager, all of our staff are volunteers. Due to the recent growth we have experienced, we prefer that clients make an appointment but anyone is welcome to walk in at any time. On an average week we will see 25 to 40 clients, while still having a waiting list. In addition to our daily appointments, there are groups that meet on a regular basis during the week. We are currently offering anger management, parenting, and couples classes, as well as a group for teen girls.
In our county, we have many “at-risk” young people, who don’t have positive role models or haven’t been taught life skills. Care Net is filling a definite void. We offer many different educational programs providing accurate information on pregnancy, fetal development, the options associated with pregnancy (parenting, adoption, or abortion), life skills, relationship issues, as well as much more. We also offer some tangible assistance such as free pregnancy test, baby clothing, baby furniture, diapers and formula.
LAPP continues to support and promote ongoing fundraising projects and events for the pool. LAPP welcomes and encourages community involvement. You do not have to live in Lehighton, we have members from surrounding communities.

Stella’s Hearts is a free support group for families who have experienced the loss of a child via miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death. This is an ongoing monthly safe space to share experiences, process feelings, and begin to find healing. Pregnancy loss and the death of a baby can be isolating and seldom talked about. Led by a Bereavement Doula, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and a Licensed Family Therapist, this group will be a safe place to share with those who understand loss.
WHEN? Our Infant Loss & Bereavement Group will be held the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30PM
