What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

SB24, signed into law in 2019, forces all CSU & UC schools to provide the abortion pill up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. These painful chemical abortions will now take place in coed campus bathrooms and dorm rooms throughout California. Because of the women we serve (on average 10 daily, many considering abortion), we know firsthand how devastating the abortion pill can be to those who experience it. Some women come to us seeking Abortion Pill Reversal Treatment, which can reverse the deadly effects of the abortion pill, and save the life of the baby. We are currently the only Sacramento clinic that can help a woman in this situation. We need your support.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is our goal to be a widely known and trusted women's medical health clinic in the Sacramento area. Our aim is to be a provider of free medical care to women, offering a supportive and safe environment where women can acquire necessary services. We give them the support they need during some of the most difficult times of their lives, and offer them hopeful alternatives to the abortion choice.

As a women's health clinic, we provide a wide range of free medical services, from pregnancy tests and ultrasounds to well-woman visits and OB/GYN care. Women can come to us knowing that they will receive quality, well-rounded care at no cost, in an environment usually reserved for the privileged and wealthy. Our staff and volunteers undergo rigorous and extensive training in order to equip them to serve and support the women we see on a daily basis. Each individual who works for us is dedicated to caring for women from all walks of life.

Our medical team consists of two OB/GYNs, one physician assistant, one nurse practitioner, six registered nurses, and one RDMS. Nearly all of these individuals are volunteers and are passionate about offering hopeful alternatives to women facing unplanned pregnancies. This volunteer base gives us the ability to sustain our patient growth rate with less of a cost to our budget. We have 20 volunteer trained Client Advocates who meet one on one with our clients, and guide them through their options, providing a listening ear to any who need one. This personalized care and attention sets our organization apart from others, and ensures that our clients are cared for on every level.

We have accomplished so much in the last year alone. From adding to our medical services to improving our staff and volunteer training, we are growing and improving, and will continue to do so in 2020. Some of the key improvements we have made in the past year have been adding to our medical team, implementing new client communication, growing our Mobile Clinic hours of operation and locations, rebranding our Mobile Clinic, implementing online scheduling and mobile intake, establishing a more organized pregnancy loss support group, etc. In the coming year we will be increasing marketing efforts, adding an exam room to accommodate our patient growth, and completing and distributing new motion graphic videos that will educate on different aspects of pregnancy, STDs, abortion, etc.
