This spring, the DC Abortion Fund hit an important milestone: 500 volunteers!
As an all-volunteer organization, this number is HUGE for us. Our volunteers are working at the ground level directly with patients who need funding for their abortions. By growing our volunteer base, we are better able to serve our community and work toward making abortion access a reality in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
If you’ve ever been interested in volunteering with DCAF, the first thing you probably hear about is case managing. Our case managers handle our helpline, and are the ones speaking to patients every day. They are advisors and problem-solvers, not only assisting with the actual funding for the procedure, but also insight into other funding options and recommended clinics.
Case managing can be time-consuming and might not fit into everyone’s schedule, but don’t worry! There are tons of other ways to get involved in DCAF.
Some other volunteer opportunities include:
These are just a few of the many ways to get involved with DCAF, but there are always more. Do you love accounting? Data? Marching? Writing? We have an opportunity for you.
