“Yes, we can help you.”
You are the reason our volunteer case managers get to tell our callers this every day.
You are the reason our helpline always stays open.
You are the reason people get to take back control of their own health care decisions, bringing us closer to reproductive justice.
Since 1995, people have called our fund for one simple yet heartbreaking reason: They cannot afford the full cost of their abortion care.
This constitutionally guaranteed health care service is out of reach for many people because of political and economic barriers — barriers that disproportionately affect people with lower incomes and people of color.
This year we’ve provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to patients to cover the gap between what they are able to pay and the full cost of abortion care. We’ve assisted more callers than ever before.
But the role and growth of abortion funds have perhaps never been more critical. As the abortion landscape around the country becomes more restrictive, more patients travel to the relatively progressive states of the D.C. area for their abortion care — and more people turn to DCAF if they need help paying for their abortion, stretching our already-tight resources.
Your support helps our patients overcome these obstacles and access the quality care they deserve.
We don’t know what the next year will bring. But we know DCAF will always be here — and we hope you’ll be here, too, helping to make our work possible.
