To qualify for this funding you must:
We will provide what we can based on each individual's needs and circumstances. Awards can be anywhere from $50 and up to $2000 depending on need. Once you fill out the interest form, you will be contacted by one of our staff members to do an intake interview. Funding can cover costs associated in seeking abortion services. This includes travel, hotel, lost wages, childcare, and costs for the procedure or medication.
For smaller amounts we can provide direct payments. For larger amounts we will either reimburse people once they submit receipts, or will directly purchase items (such as airfare or lodging accommodations). We designed this process with flexibility to support each individuals’ unique circumstances and will determine the details during the intake interview.
Our full-spectrum birthkeepers provide practical support for the physical, emotional, and psychological experiences that are related to abortion, as well as monitor for potential complications. Also known as abortion doulas, they provide support before, during, and after for people who are having abortions. The type of support depends on the type of procedure (in clinic vs. out of clinic, medication v. procedural). This support can be virtual or phone support as well as in-person depending on the type of care and intimacy desired. They may also support logistics around scheduling, transportation, meals, and creating a network of support.
Also known as “all options counseling,” is unbiased, judgment-free, and open hearted information shared with someone who is wanting to understand more about all their options for care when it comes to pregnancy, parenting, adoption, and abortion. More information can be found at all-options.org.
