Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Thousands of women in the DMV experience an unexpected pregnancy each year, with approximately 6,000 women each year choosing abortion as a result. Assist Pregnancy Center believes there is always a better option than abortion for women and their partners facing an unexpected pregnancy. Assist is committed to stepping into the gap for women, addressing the lack of relational, emotional, or financial support that leads many to think abortion is their only option in an unexpected pregnancy. Assist also is committed to supporting women and men who have been impacted negatively by an abortion experience, helping them encounter healing and hope again.
