We provide travel and lodging assistance to Ohio residents whether your appointment is in Ohio or you are having to travel out-of-state. Please contact the clinic you are scheduled at directly first if you need assistance paying for your appointment. You need to have an appointment booked before we can assist with practical support needs. If you need help finding a clinic to schedule an appointment at, find a list of clinics we partner with here. You can also find the clinic nearest to you here.
If you need additional assistance, please fill out our online form here. A Resource Coordinator will respond to you within 48 hours. If your appointment is scheduled further out (2-3 weeks or more) we may respond after 48 hours. If you are not able to access the form, or fill it out, please call our warmline number at (614) 300-7811 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: AFO's warmline is not a live call line. When calling, please leave a voicemail with your first name, last initial & a number we can safely return your call to.
For legal help, including minors’ access to abortion (judicial bypass): AFO’s Legal Access Program is a free, confidential helpline where you can get legal information or advice about the abortion laws in Ohio. We can help with topics like self-managed abortion, young people's access to abortion, and judicial bypass. You can fill out our intake form or call or text us at 614-799-2843. Please allow 48 hours (not including weekends/holidays) for us to get back to you.
About Abortion Fund of Ohio
Abortion Fund of Ohio—formerly Women Have Options (WHO/O)—is Ohio’s statewide abortion fund. Founded in 1992, we are an organization dedicated to helping Ohioans afford their reproductive decisions. We believe that everyone should be able to make their own reproductive decisions—and we work to make that a reality in Ohio.
AFO provides financial assistance and practical support (transportation, housing, and more) to help patients afford contraception, emergency contraception, and abortion services. Our mission is simple – to support the right of everyone to make their own reproductive decisions with love, compassion, and non-judgmental support in accordance with reproductive justice values.
At a time when our reproductive freedoms are under attack by anti-abortion groups and legislators, your support is needed more than ever. Abortion Fund of Ohio depends on funding from private foundations and individuals like you to continue our important work. You can support us by donating one-time or committing to a monthly donation.
