I have worked with Faith Aloud's Executive Director for nearly a decade and I believe strongly in Faith Aloud's fills a valuable role in society-- Faith Aloud has given voice to women's religious dignity at a time when much of the morality conversation is about shaming women.
There is no question that this organization's lean operating model allows the most good to be done for women and families. In fact, the Faith Aloud team mobilizes volunteers effectively to serve women all over the United States and even internationally. The creative use of technology allows a Board of members from all over the country-- I am in South Florida-- to work together to support our shared beliefs and common mission.
Women need Faith Aloud. There is no question in my mind.
In the past year or so, Faith Aloud has grown exponentially and has increased its impact so that it serves women nationally. This isn't a "national organization" in name only-- in the past year, Faith Aloud truly has supported women in nearly every state (and even other countries!), reached out to clergy in a spectrum of denominations, and supports clinic staff who will, in turn, serve thousands of women.
Even though I moved geographically far from the Faith Aloud headquarters, I am informed, involved and my passion for Faith Aloud's mission has not waned. One of the many things Faith Aloud manages well is communications on a tech-savvy and personal level.
In every way, Faith Aloud is a professional, outstanding nonprofit organization and the leader in its field.
I have been a volunteer counselor for Faith Aloud for several years. I speak to women who need to be reassured that God is still with them, even as they wrestle with making a decision about abortion, or as they continue to process that decision. Most of the women I have spoken to end our conversation by thanking me for listening and praying with them. A woman I spoke with just last week said, "Thanks for reminding me that God hasn't abandoned me. I guess I always knew that, but I really needed to be reminded right now." I am grateful that Faith Aloud and their volunteer counselors are available to women like this who need to be reminded that God loves them.
Faith Aloud is a professional, compassionate, and ethical presence of justice in the world. The dedication they show to women around the world is reflective of the passion they have for reproductive justice and the empowerment of women.
Faith Aloud works tirelessly in the community, developing ethical and compassionate leaders of tomorrow.
Faith Aloud is a wonderful organization that is helping all people to better understand the rights that should be given to all women. Faith Aloud is working to take the socail stigma away off of women that have had abortions. Faith Aloud is working to help women to learn that making a decision for their lives makes them strong not sinful.
I've been volunteering on the board of trustees for Faith Aloud for five years. I have great respect of Faith Aloud and for the work it does. It is changing the landscape of reproductive justice in a badly needed way.
Review from Guidestar
Faith Aloud provides an affirming, faith-based voice, counseling women who have had or are considering abortion. If it were not for this organization, many women would not have access to an alternative perspective from the faith community that states that they are children of God, no matter what, and that there is nothing that can separate them from the love of God (Romans). As a counselor, pastor, and mother of three daughters, I would not hesitate to refer anyone to this service. They offer guidance, not decisions, and reflect the great commandment -- to love God and to love neighbor.
