Pregnancy Services provides help and support in solving medical, social, educational and psychological problems associated with unplanned pregnancies. Services may include counseling and information to help recipients make voluntary choices regarding adoption, parenting 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, can provide for maternity housing or alternative care services for any North Carolina resident, expectant mother who is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. This fund provides payment of residential care with related services.

- Be an expectant mother who is unable to maintain adequate housing during the last 183 days of her prenatal period
- Have inadequate financial resources to meet the residential costs in an approved living arrangement as determined by a social worker
