Aid for women really opened my eyes. I was pregnant, really scared and undecided about how to move forward with my pregnancy. That’s when I decided to check out Aid for women. I met with a Client Advocate and from there I decided to have my baby. Aid for Women provided me with the support that I needed. I recommend them to any pregnant woman who is having a hard time.
Jeanette P.

Aid for Women is an amazing blessing. I was alone, scared and pregnant with a baby that I wasn’t sure that I could provide for. The women that work there gave me hope and joy in a time that was very trying for me. They always had kind words to say or even just a shoulder to cry on. They helped me see my own strength. It was a welcoming place for me when I didn’t know where else to turn. I will be forever grateful for all the help I received from Aid for Women.

I got so lucky to find Aid for Women. I had found out that I was pregnant and needed confirmation. I didn’t know where to go and didn’t have medical insurance. I walked into Aid for Women, and they were so warm and made me feel comfortable right away. They confirmed that I was pregnant and were open to me about everything I needed to know about my options. I highly recommend them!
Yvette K.

I absolutely recommend Aid for Woman to any woman out there who is really struggling. I was needing a place to stay and pregnant with twins and had a one-year-old son. With Aid for Women’s help, I am know living in a safe place and participating in pregnancy and parenting classes. My Client Advocate is an amazing listener and motivator and so non-judgmental! It really helped me to open up about all my struggles, and Aid for Women always helps as much as they can.

I went to Aid for Women when I was scared and alone with nowhere to turn. The help that I received was exceptional! I felt safe and secure and felt like I could go to them for anything. Everyone there was soooo kind to me. They really helped me through a tough situation, and I couldn’t be more thankful to have found Aid for Women. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am now, and I mean that!

Natalia M.

I’m so glad my co-worker told me about Aid for Women. Everyone there made me feel super comfortable and welcomed. They’ve given me resources for everything that I need, from medical insurance to finding housing. The whole experience has given me peace of mind. I’d recommend Aid for Women to any woman who feels lost and doesn’t know where to start.
