The Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre (CAPCC) has opened a new office in Stettler. The non-profit organization has been serving Red Deer and Central Alberta since 1988. Since then, satellite offices have opened in Olds, Rocky Mountain House, Drumheller, and now Stettler. These offices allow men, women, and families to access various support programs within their local communities.
On Monday, May 2, 2022, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the office located at 5000 50 Avenue in Stettler. In attendance were Lisa Smith (CAPCC Executive Director), Sean Nolls (Mayor of Stettler), a representative of the Board of Trade, two board members from the Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre, volunteers from the Stettler office, and several community members. The organization is pleased with the support they have received from the community, including a dessert night fundraiser on April 21. The event was the first in-person fundraiser for the organization in over two years and was well attended.
The vision of the Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre is to provide education and ongoing, compassionate support before, during, and after pregnancy. All programs are free, confidential, and are offered in a safe and non-judgmental environment regardless of age, gender, race, or religion. These include pregnancy options support, male mentorship, baby and maternity clothing, post-abortion support, support for past sexual abuse/trauma, parenting programs, education on healthy relationships, referrals for community resources, and a Maternity Home located in Red Deer.
