The essence of Birthright is love. Birthright is unique and committed to offering free, non-judgmental help to women facing unplanned pregnancies. Birthright offers love, hope, and support to each woman, to help her make a realistic plan for her future and the future of her unborn child.
At Birthright we understand the challenges related to unplanned pregnancies. We know that it can be an overwhelming and often scary situation. However, we also know that there is hope for the mother and her child. Birthright believes that, "It is the right of every pregnant woman to give birth, and the right of every child to be born." Birthright is her to be the friend that a pregnant woman needs as she navigates an unplanned pregnancy no matter what the problem may be. Birthright's focus is on loving the mother, reminding her that there is hope and ensuring she is not alone.
We offer confidential help, conduct pregnancy tests, and give new mothers layettes along with clothing and diapers each month if she continues to need help. Our services are completely free.
The time commitment is not a great deal. We require volunteers to take on two 2 hour shifts per month. There are two types of volunteers. Those who become trained and actually work with the clients and those who are called "companions" who come in to work evening shifts and help the volunteers. This does not require training.
PLEASE... serious inquiries only. It takes time to contact people and train them so we would appreciate you contacting us only if you are truly interested in becoming a volunteer.
