Pregnancy Services

Pregnancy Services give individuals needed help and support in solving medical, social, educational, and psychological problems associated with unplanned pregnancies. Services include counseling and information to help recipients make voluntary choices regarding adoption, keeping the child, or terminating the pregnancy. Services may also include assistance in arranging for and utilizing other needed services, including residential care.

The State Maternity Home Fund, a component of Pregnancy Services, provides payment for up to six months of residential care and services. The fund pays for care and related medical services for any North Carolina resident expectant mother who is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. Funds may be provided regardless of age or marital status for the expectant mother who is unable to remain in her own home during the prenatal period.

Applicants must apply for the State Maternity Home Fund through a local department of social services or a licensed North Carolina adoption agency. Approved applicants must be NC resident expectant mothers who are unable to remain in their own homes during the prenatal period and who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.. They must also have inadequate financial resources to meet the residential costs in an approved living arrangement as determined by a social worker.

An application for the State Maternity Home Fund may be made through a county Department of Social Services or a licensed North Carolina adoption agency.

Should you or someone you know require this service, contact your county Department of Social Services or a licensed North Carolina adoption agency.
