My daughters Brownie troop earned their Bronze award helping Birthline. They saw first hand how their work and donations helped the mothers-to-be. It also showed them how difficult their struggles were, just providing the basic needs of their families. They do great work at birthline for both emotional and tangible support.

A long time ago I was young, unmarried, alone, pregnant and very scared. I sat down with one of the women in Birthline and I knew I would be alright. I wasn't going to keep the baby growing in me and I wasn't going to have it destroyed. I knew from the first moment I walked into their office what was right for me and right for the baby developing and growing inside of me. I wanted to choose a new set of parents for my child, and Birthline guided me the right direction. I look back now and wonder what would have happened if I went somewhere else. I was blessed. I now donate and help out with Birthline when I can. Thank you Birthline.

In today's world of mixed messages, fast paced society, and sadly a culture that doesn't respect life, it is inspirational and comforting to know that Birthline is there to provide a balanced, nuturing, caring, and sustainable environment for women. Birthline has been in San Diego to 30 years and has helped many women who may be have been in crisis - it is with their loving and giving hearts - that many of these women have made a rewarding decision. They are one of a kind!

My experience with a volunteer at Birthline was very positive. She is very dedicated, a great listener, and has a very big heart for what she is doing for Birthline and those who approach them. She is very committed to Birthline and also works with others in the community by looking for partners to support the coalition to help the poorest of poor pregnant and homeless women with children.

I have been donating to Birthline for many years and am so proud of the work they do. Thousands of woman and teenage girls have walked through their doors and have had their lives changed. Birthline provides support so that these woman can have their childern and get back on their feet again. I truly believe that the funding I provide is going to a very worthy cause. It is an honor to be able to support Birthline of San Diego.

I am a volunteer at Birthline and am so proud to work with all the wonderful people and volunteers there. I teach full time at a college and volunteer on my lunch hour. I usually come there beaten down by all my work stress, but after spending an hour with the warm and awesome people there, I leave feeling uplifted and proud of the work I do and the people I work with.

I am part of a Mom's Bible Study group that wanted to give back to the San Diego community by supporting a non-profit organization that supported mother’s in need. We chose Birthline of San Diego because of its amazing 33 year commitment to mothers and their children. We love how Birthline supports an expectant mother with her decision to have her child. As mothers we know the joy of holding a child in our arms for the first time and want every mother, whatever her circumstance, to have that same opportunity. We are proud to sponsor Birthline and the unsung work that they do.

Working in family services for over 6 years, I am so impressed with the work and dedication of Birthline. They support local families during difficult times and their staff of volunteers do a tremendous job of providing services to help build independence and future stability. My family and I will always do what we can to encourage their important work.
