We match a pregnant client with a trustworthy, trained volunteer who provides support. We believe everyone who is pregnant is empowered through authentic friendship, tangible services and connection to community resources.
We offer our Friendship program and material services at no cost to all clients, regardless of pregnancy path.
We have only 2 program requirements: she is pregnant and she is willing to have a personal connection with a caring, trustworthy woman providing personal support, during and after her pregnancy.
Although A Friend 4U refers only to parenting and adoption resources, should a client choose abortion, her relationship with her matched Volunteer Friend continues and doesn’t change.
Post-pregnancy meals and gifts are offered to clients of all pregnancy paths, including miscarriage who are current clients of our Friendship program.
When someone who is pregnant calls A Friend 4U, she speaks to a caring person who listens and asks if she has immediate needs we can meet and then hears about our Friendship program.
If she chooses to join, she will be connected with a Volunteer Friend within 24 hours. The client defines the relationship according to her needs – whether it’s intensely personal, an occasional call for information, or anything in between and continues for as long as the client needs or chooses. Many clients are so happy with their matched relationships, they last well past pregnancy.
