About Women’s Health Specialists – Women in Need Fund

It’s amazing how little women need, but without it, they are unable to get to a reproductive health provider. This is especially true for women in rural America. We are the only abortion provider in a 7 county region in Northern California. Many women have to travel hours to get to our clinic. The Women in Need Fund allows us to provide women with financial help for medical services, transportation, motels, childcare or whatever the women need to be able to come to the clinic.

Women’s Health Specialists – Women in Need Fund's Community

The clinic assisted 3,073 women in 2014 for birth control, STI and abortion and adoption services.

We have 11 clinic sites. WHS staff are paid.  Volunteers organize fundraisers, do outreach and also escort at the clinics.

We’ve sponsored Bowl-a-thons, Taco’s N Beer, Giving Tuesday campaign, and yard sales.
