Causes: Health, Reproductive Health Care, Reproductive Rights

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.

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!

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.

I donate to this organization because they reach so many desperate women who are pregnant or have young children. They have helped several homeless women get off the street in the last few months and this Christmas they are going to make baskets of food and toys for the families that need the most help.

It's my pleasure to donate to this organization because I too work with families and children that need help, services and guidance. Birthline volunteers provide all of these and more. I will continue to donate items and spread the word.
