CPC to Open in Arbutus on Tuesday

The Center for Pregnancy Concerns will be located on East Drive.

The Center For Pregnancy Concerns (CPC) will open a center in Arbutus Tuesday.

It's set to open at 5406 East Drive in Arbutus, and will be open from 2-7 Tuesday. This will be the fourth CPC in Baltimore County, according to a news release.

CPC aims to "provide clients with peer-to-peer counseling, free pregnancy testing, pre-natal development information, limited sonograms, prenatal vitamins, maternity clothing and referrals to community resources including housing, healthcare and adoption information," the release states.

It also helps families with small children that need infant clothing and supplies. There are also parenting and life skills classes, and other educational programs.

There are already three other CPC Centers, located in Canton, Dundalk and Essex, the release states.

The CPC program began in 1980 to help women who needed to deal with an unplanned pregnancy and the situations that occur with it, it states.

For more information on any of the centers, call 410-391-3911.

Wow, Arbutus is really on the ghetto map now! Isn't this kind of place usually located next door to the welfare office? Why would there be a need for this place anyway? Obama has us paying for birth control, abortions, feeding children at least twice a day at school, Section 8 housing, food stamps, cell phones and free health care. Whatever problem a person could have is taken care of by the tax payer already. A Pregnancy center isn't needed, the whole thing can be avoided if she just takes her birth control or has an abortion. Also, I wonder why this place isn't located in Towson rather than Arbutus..

Talk about Wow! I know the people who have planned for years to get this center open. They have wonderful, beautiful hearts for PEOPLE. They care about PEOPLE in need - at a time of crisis when they are confused about what to do next. They care about the unborn who doesn't have a voice. They are pouring their heart and soul as well as their personal money into this effort to help where society failed them with the "it doesn't matter what I do" attitude. Mother Theresa said "It is a Poverty of Values where one must die so that another can live as they choose". I know some of what you said is tongue and cheek but it's not about ghettos and Arbutus has people too. This location will serve anyone choosing to walk in the door concerned about pregnancy issues. You might consider sending them a donation to help defray the costs of running the center. The volunteers would love to have your support.

Great to read that there are people interested in sharing their opinion and entering into the discussion on how WE all need to be engaged, not just with words, but by our actions in making our communities better. Opinion must lead to action that's what brings change. As Lead Pastor at Matt's House Church in Arbutus, I love to hear what others think about the state of our community and the needs that exist. If you have any thoughts or ideas on what we can do as a community to meet real needs I would appreciate hearing from you. By the way, the Center for Pregnancy Concerns is privately funded, and receives no state or federal money, to meet very real needs. It's the people of our country who have a passion for their communities and for people that invest their resources: money, time and talent to make the difference the government was never intended to make.

WOW!! CAW21227, how old are you and could you be more RUDE! You just have no COUTH. Didn't your parents teach you "If you have nothing nice to say than keep your mouth shut". May you need some sort of help one of these days and NO ONE is there to help b/c of your arrogance. I am a hard working single independent woman that lost my job because of OBAMA and the government shut down due to the health care plan, so now I need to seek help. All these years of me paying my taxes has now come back to help me. I can't express my gratitude for places like this at my time of need. I have never had anyone help me for anything. I am more than THANKFUL and will pay it forward as soon as I get myself back together with a job. For your information, the people that work at places like this are volunteers. Don't judge until you are in a certain situation. So in the meantime, think before you speak b/c you are very offensive in your words.
