|Alternate Name(s):||ACCESS Women's Health Justice|
The Access Hotline provides free, confidential and nonjudgmental information, referrals, peer counseling and advocacy on the full range of reproductive health services including abortion, birth control, pregnancy, prenatal care, pap smears and gyn care, infertility, and STD testing and treatment. We connect women with public insurance programs that pay for this care, such as FamilyPACT, Medi-Cal or AIM. We also refer to organizations that can help with other issues such as domestic violence, sexual assault, drug addiction, homelessness, child-care or job discrimination. We offer a dedicated full-time Spanish hotline, and additional languages are available by interpreter.
ELIGIBILITY: Our services are open to all women and men living in California your age, income, insurance or immigration status does not matter.
|Programs:||Our Practical Support Network ensures that all women can obtain safe abortion services without isolation or delay. When a woman cannot rely on her personal resources to get to a clinic, our network of more than 100 volunteers can provide rides, overnight housing, child-care, translation or other assistance. Our Women In Need Fund provides money to pay for hotel rooms and bus tickets when women must travel great distances to find care, and contributes to the cost of abortion so that women can obtain the procedure without delay.
|Volunteer Info:||HealthLine: Volunteers who answer calls to our peer-based hotlines and provide reproductive health information, referrals, advocacy and peer-counseling and help organize transportation and funding assistance for our caller-partners.
Practical Support Network: Volunteers who help women obtain safe, quality abortion services by providing direct assistance-rides, overnight housing, child care, translation, etc. to help women physically make it to their appointments.
