Mission: irthline exists for the sole purpose of assisting pregnant women and women with small children.
We are a pregnancy support service, and we help every woman who calls on us. Single or married we assist them to have their babies rather than opt for abortion.
Results: We exceeded our goal for the 18th annual Walk for Life walkathon, our main fundraiser.
We are focused on acquiring more grant funding and corporate sponsorships. We have won several grants this year from local women's organizations.
We will be hosting the annual Christmas Party for our clients December 12th.
We are focused on securing sponsors for a "Client Resource" room of computers and all things to enable our clients to become self-reliant in ONE visit.
We seek sponsors to secure a larger building to house our growth, which will enable us to help even more of our disadvantaged wee neighbors and their families.

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.
