Welcome to A Friend for You

Hi  there...


We’re Here to Support You — Not Pressure You

Our Promises to You

Who doesn’t need a little extra encouragement sometimes? You will receive a few special gifts throughout your pregnancy and to celebrate certain holidays. It’s just another way we show our support and gratitude for becoming our client here at A Friend for You.

Enjoy the Occasional Gift!

Your volunteer is ready to connect you with organizations who provide material and professional services in your local community.

Gain Access to Local Resources

Remember, the nature of this relationship is on your terms. You’re welcome to meet her at a favorite coffee shop, fast food restaurant, a local park — wherever you feel most comfortable. The method and how often you’d like to connect is entirely up to you.

How Does It Work?

We Love Our Clients

"Thank you for being my breath of fresh air, my hope in the dark...I can't even begin to describe how thankful I am to have found this program...

"I love this program!!! Everyone is so friendly and so supportive!!!! I have been in this program for over a month now, it's a wonderful feeling that you know there is a friend there for you and they can provide lots of information when you need it. Highly recommend this program to everyone! 

"I was interested and curious about what A Friend For You was all about, and I wanted to be brave and call. My social worker and nurse talked about how good the program is."

"I didn't get as depressed during pregnancy, and my friend helped ground me, encourage me, and support me in a way others did not."

"Honestly, I'm just so grateful for all the help you've been to my family."

I'm curious. How much time does it take to learn more? 

We want you to know that when you text or call, there is no requirement to join. If you decide not to participate in A Friend for You, that’s fine! 

The call will likely last between 10-15 minutes. During this time, we will answer all of your questions, and can even complete your intake forms if you’d like. If you’re not interested, we can still point you to community resources.

Sometimes it’s a bit of risk to meet someone new….we understand. Once you are paired with a volunteer, you will receive a bio and a picture even before you meet. Our volunteers have a heart for those who are pregnant and just want to help in whatever way you’re comfortable. It typically looks like going to coffee, meeting at a park or going to a resource together. She will also help you find resources.
