If you want an abortion, we’re here to support you
Call our free, confidential helpline at 855-518-4603
You will be asked to leave us a message with the following information:
The number we should use to reach you
Whether it is okay to leave a voicemail when we call you back
The date and location of your appointment
Your gestation / how many weeks along in your pregnancy
You may leave a voicemail at any time.
We return calls on Sunday - Wednesday - Friday according to appointment date.
You will receive a call back from a blocked number within 48 hours of your appointment.
Where can I go to get an abortion?
We work with independent providers and Planned Parenthood locations in-state, as well as some out-of-state providers who offer care past 20weeks gestation. Learn more about finding a provider on our Abortion FAQ page.
Who does CAF fund?
CAF funds residents of North and South Carolina as well as people coming to the Carolinas for their abortion care. We offer compassionate and honest care regardless of a caller's gender identity, financial reality, etc. and have volunteers available in English and Spanish. We do not have any income requirements to receive funding.
Will CAF cover the entire cost my procedure?
Unfortunately, due to our limited budget and high call volume we are typically not able to cover the entire cost of an abortion. During our conversation with you, we will work together to determine your financial need and connect you with additional funding support if need be.
How do pledges work?
Pledges are commitments by CAF to pay a portion of your procedure cost. We send our pledge amounts directly to the abortion clinic. Instead of the clinic asking you to pay the amount of your pledge, the clinic will bill us directly for that amount.
You will never have to pay us back the pledge.
Why haven’t I heard back from you yet?
We understand how stressful it can be to wait for a call back and we appreciate your patience. We promise to return calls on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We receive an average of 100 funding requests a week and operate with a small staff- for this reason, you may not hear back from us until 48-24 hours before your appointment. Please indicate if we can leave a voicemail on your line. We make multiple attempts to reach callers, but call from a blocked number and will only leave a message if you explicitly tell us to.
