The Brigid Alliance is a referral-based service that provides travel, food, lodging, child care and other logistical support for people seeking abortions. We prioritize clients beyond 15 weeks of pregnancy for whom it’s generally more expensive and harder to find a provider near home. We are part of an ecosystem of support organizations that is propping up abortion care access in this country in an increasingly hostile environment.
Often our clients have had to delay their procedure while trying to pull together money, take time off work, find child care, book their abortion appointment and navigate confusing laws – not to mention unsupportive communities and sometimes unsupportive healthcare providers. With these services, we help them get to the abortion care they need.
We book and pay for transportation.
We book and pay for hotel stays.

Our client-facing coordinators are full-time staff, trained to deliver non-judgmental, trauma-informed and compassionate support.
