Founded over thirty years ago, on the faith and teachings of the Catholic Church, Aid for Women reaches out to thousands of women every year throughout the Chicago metropolitan area, who find themselves in difficult and unplanned pregnancy situations. Each client is provided with compassionate and confidential counseling as well as the support and resources needed for her to choose life instead of abortion for her unborn baby.
Many of our clients are without adequate housing, a factor that weighs heavily on them as they decide whether or not they can choose life for their unborn child. Heather’s House gives clients and their babies a loving residence where they can stay for up to two years. The women participate in programs to learn life and parenting skills, further their education and gain the career training necessary to be independent, loving and self-sufficient mothers.
The services offered by Aid for Women and Heather’s House require substantial financial resources. Your support allows us to continue providing our services free of charge to our clients. Voluntary contributions, not your tax dollars, support these young women and their babies. Please consider giving, at any level, so we can continue to provide women with help and real solutions so they feel empowered to choose life for their babies instead of abortion.
