What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Save the Storks exists to inspire cultural change by shaping compelling pro-life narratives and empowering strategic partners to serve and value every life. We provide an innovative non-political, non-combative approach that supports PRCs across the United States, and equip them with powerful tools and training to more effectively connect with abortion-vulnerable women in their communities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Save the Storks partners with pregnancy resource centers all over the nation to provide them with powerful tools and training so they can more effectively reach and serve abortion-minded expectant mothers. Through partnering with PRC's we are better able to reach women in need who may be pregnant.

Local pregnancy centers offer an incredible service for expectant mothers by providing ongoing health care and support to women in crisis during their pregnancy and after their baby is born.

Through our partnership with pregnancy centers, we provide the tools and resources they need to get closer to those who need their services. Our Stork Bus minimizes the distance between pro-life professionals and the women who most need them. Additionally, our consulting packages help pregnancy centers understand how to better utilize their staff and resources to reach a greater number of women.

One of our goals is to provide pregnancy resource centers with Stork Buses to be an extension of their ministry. This enables them to meet with women right at the door of an abortion clinic, instead of waiting for women to come to them. It is our partnership with pregnancy resource centers that makes us a complete ministry. Abortion-minded women who decide to keep their children often need counseling, discipleship, a loving community, food, formula, clothing, diapers, and so much more – all provided through local pregnancy centers.
We also work closely with our pregnancy center affiliates to help them grow so that they can better serve the women in their communities. We aim to serve and support as many pregnancy centers as possible so that they are able to effectively serve women.

So far we have accomplished reaching more abortion vulnerable women through our growing number of mobile medical units.
What we have not yet accomplished is reaching women right at the moment they find out they are pregnant. We are continually developing new initiatives to serve pregnancy centers to help them become even more effective!

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Our mobile operations department has used feedback from pregnancy center partners with mobile units as a way to figure out how to best fix problems with their mobile units. Team members are now able to travel to those pregnancy centers to get a better feel of the problems being experience in order to get it fixed, rather than trying to figure it out over the phone.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    Our staff, Our board,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    It brings in another level of communication and trust. Our partners are able to trust that we will help with their concerns and get things fixed properly, rather than trying to get those fixes done on their own or ignoring it for it to only get worse.
