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.

Professional with expertise in this field
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.
