Canadian Association of Pregnancy Support Services (CAPSS)
CAPSS was formed in 1997 to provide a Canadian national association dedicated to encouraging, equipping and partnering with local Pregnancy Centres.
CAPSS provides leadership development, operational standards, staff and volunteer training along with spiritual encouragement to over 70 affiliated Centres.
Their purpose is to help assist local pregnancy centres reach and compassionately care for clients facing issues related to unplanned pregnancies, post abortion stress, and sexual health.
CAPSS is a joint Affiliation Partners with Heartbeat International. Heartbeat supports their efforts to equip and encourage a regional network of local, grassroots efforts to promote life-affirming alternatives to abortion.
All financial gifts received designated for our approved “alliance” affiliates will be forwarded to them in a reasonable timeframe (usually upon exceeding $250US). Heartbeat International deducts $30 plus 3% from the transfer, to help defray internal cost for money transfers, currency conversion, clerical costs, bank fees and any processing fees that might be charged. Should any funds be unable to be forwarded – primarily related to the recipient - they may be re-allocated for similar international work.
