Review for Women's Care Center of Sevier County TN, Sevierville, TN, USA
The Women's Care Center of Sevier County, Inc. has served the needs of women and their families in Sevier County for 21 years. Any woman who thinks she might be pregnant may receive a free pregnancy test, peer consulting, accurate medical facts, including physical risks as a result of an abortion procedure, information about abortion alternatives, and kind assistance with any other information needed to make an informed, healthy choice about a pregnancy. All services of the WCC are free.
Material assistance at the Baby Boutique, continuing education in the parenting program, community referrals for other personal needs, and friendships established with staff and volunteers are added benefits received by WCC clients. Each client is assured of privacy and confidentiality.

The WCC needs to have a 2,000 + square foot one-story facility to enable this ministry to meet the needs of more clients (more volunteers and an increase in daily hours of operation), to provide ultrasound services for clients, to establish a mentoring program for young fathers, and to open a small store for gently used baby items (for the public). The building location needs to be near a trolley stop and a large parking area would also be needed.
