When you call, be prepared to leave a message with:
New River Abortion Access Fund operates a “warmline.” A helpline volunteer will return your call within 24 – 48 hours. We start responding to voicemails on Tuesday, and the helpline is typically closed by Thursday — or whenever the weekly budget is reached.
You are eligible for assistance if you’re a resident of Virginia and surrounding communities, or traveling to Virginia for an abortion. Resources are limited, and priority goes to Southwest Virginians, which means we won’t be able to fund many callers in the Northern/Central/Tidewater regions. See the FAQ for more information about eligibility and service area. Please state your city or county of residence in your initial voicemail. We can’t fund your procedure without this information.
If you’re traveling and need help with transportation and/or overnight accommodations, we provide the following types of support: rides to and from the clinic with volunteers, gas money, Uber/Lyft rides, bus tickets, hotel rooms, home stays with volunteers, childcare, and meals. If necessary, we can connect you with other sources of funding or provide referrals to post-abortion and crisis support services.
Give us a call and select ext 2 to request practical support. Leave a message with the basic information listed above. If you need a ride, please include a pick-up/drop-off address and appointment time. If you need gas money, include your Paypal or Venmo information.
