We Are Committed To:

Minimal Requirements

We keep things pretty simple around here. Your connection with your matched Friend is based entirely on your terms. You get to determine the nature of the relationship and can step away from the program at any time.

Unconditional Support

Although A Friend for You refers only to parenting and adoption resources, should a client choose abortion or suffer miscarriage, her relationship with her matched Friend continues and doesn’t change.

Gifts and Meals

Post-pregnancy meals and gifts are offered to clients of all pregnancy paths, including miscarriage, who are current clients of our Friendship Program.

Our Leadership

A Friend for You is a faith-based nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers. Without the support and involvement of these wonderful leaders, we would not be able to serve our clients as effectively as we’ve been called to.

How Does It Work?

Give us Call The first step is simply to give us a call or send us a text message. This will allow you to share how we can best support you while sharing as little or as much or your story as you feel comfortable.
Get Matched With a Volunteer Within 24 hours of contacting us, we will connect you with a trained volunteer who will provide you with ongoing 1-on-1 support. You’ll receive a short bio of your volunteer before you meet. From there, YOU define the relationship according to your needs. She is here to offer support, not judgement.
Decide How You’d Like to Connect Remember, the nature of this relationship is on your terms. Once you’ve been put in contact with your volunteer, you’re welcome to meet 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.
Gain Access to Local Resources Your volunteer is ready to connect you with organizations who provide material and professional services in your local community.
Enjoy the Occasional Gift! Who doesn’t need a little extra encouragement sometimes? You can expect to receive a few special gifts throughout your pregnancy and to celebrate certain holidays. It’s just another way for us to show our support and gratitude for becoming our client here at A Friend for You.
