Together, we are building a stronger system of care.

Provide is a nonprofit organization founded in 1992. We work in partnership with health and social service providers to build a healthcare system that, in a climate of diminishing access, is equipped to respond to needs related to unintended pregnancy and abortion. We envision a healthcare system that cares for the whole person with dignity and respect, and where workers have the tools and support to offer the best care to their clients.

We see potential for any individual who cares for people to play a role in ensuring accessible abortion care. By addressing abortion within the context of the full range of people’s needs and our broader values, we help partners make a significant contribution to people’s health and autonomy. Engaging healthcare and social service providers and empowering them with information and skills about abortion is a critical opportunity to improve coordination of care for people seeking abortion.

We have over 25 years of experience working within healthcare and social service systems to support professionals. Our depth of knowledge around introducing difficult topics in the workplace helps us equip workers with the tools and resources needed to offer referrals for unintended pregnancy in their settings. After seven years of training more than 10,000 health and social service providers across 18 states on referrals for unintended pregnancy and abortion care, we’re bringing our effective best-practices and resources to professionals and organizations nationwide with our FREE virtual trainings.

Nearly

women a year have abortions.

Abortion is a common and safe medical procedure.

And yet, stigma associated with abortion limits the availability of resources and training to health and social service professionals. The same trusted health and social service providers who serve as key connectors to other specialized services often lack the knowledge or skills to help a patient or client who is facing an unintended pregnancy to access abortion. This absence of support creates an unnecessary rupture in coordination of care, which means additional hardship for clients seeking these services, especially those living in rural areas and/or facing other health issues, and negatively affects a patient’s overall experience within her system of care.

That’s where Provide comes in.
