Who We Can Help
We provide direct funding to folks who either reside in New England or are going to a clinic located in New England (which we define as Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont). If you live in a state/region that has an abortion fund, you should reach out to them first – they will be the best equipped to help you.
How to Get Help

- Step One: Make an appointment for your procedure. For local callers, here is a list of area clinics which can help you. This list does not include any pro-life crisis pregnancy centers, which often try to convince you to choose other alternatives and may not present your options fully or accurately.
- Step Two: Your clinic will help you find out how far along your pregnancy is. They will ask you the first day of your last menstrual period and may ask you to come in for a pregnancy test before scheduling your procedure.
- Step Three: For financial help, you can call or text our warmline at 413-582-3632. Please share your name, phone number, state you’re calling from, and appointment information. All calls and texts are confidential, and we will return your message within 24 hours.
If you are under the age of 16 and seeking abortion care in Massachusetts, you will need parental permission or a judicial bypass (permission from a judge). Your clinic can help you decide what’s best for your situation and will provide more information.
We will work with you regardless of your citizenship or immigration status.
We are here to help you. We know that if someone can’t afford an abortion, then it isn’t available.
About Abortion Rights Fund of Western Massachusetts
The Abortion Rights Fund of Western Massachusetts is a community-based organization dedicated to helping people overcome the economic barriers to abortion care. Learn more.
Abortion Rights Fund of Western Massachusetts's Community
Last year, the Abortion Rights Fund of Western Massachusetts helped more than 300 people who otherwise would not be able to afford an abortion.
The fund continues to work with other grassroots organizations in the National Network of Abortion Funds to expand abortion rights and reproductive freedom, and to repeat harsh restrictions which place undue burdens on those seeking abortion care.
For abortion funds, raising money is half the battle, because we can’t help people unless we have something to give. Donating to ARFWM means giving people the resources they need to make the choice that is right for them.
