This satellite office grew over time and became a center in the CareNet Counseling network, first known as the Harnett Family Life Center, then as CareNet of Harnett. In time, it moved location to Erwin NC. In these past years, CareNet of Harnett has come back up under the direction of the Fayetteville office. Both centers are part of the CareNet Counseling network of Wake Forest Baptist Health. Both provide quality faith-based counseling by licensed mental health professionals of strong faith backgrounds. Both are supported by local churches.
