What We Do

For many women, obtaining an abortion is much more than simply showing up at a clinic. In addition to requesting time off work, there are other logistical issues such as arranging for childcare (for women with children), travel costs and plans (for women who must travel out of town or out of state, or even those without a vehicle), overnight accommodations for two-day procedures, food costs and more. Sometimes these logistical constraints do not come to mind until after the decision to obtain an abortion is made. And for many, these issues act as a powerful barrier to accessing abortion care.

No woman should have to forgo an abortion because they cannot afford a hotel room or the gasoline involved with traveling. Our goal is to address these logistical issues and aid women through this process.

  • Gas cards
  • Bus passes
  • Lodging costs
  • Grocery assistance
