What is Birthright?
Founded in 1968 in Toronto, Canada, Birthright is a pregnancy help service where anyone concerned about an unplanned or untimely pregnancy can find assistance as near as their phone. With chapters in the United States, Canada and Africa, Birthright offers services to help the woman throughout her pregnancy and beyond. These services include support, guidance, education, material assistance, and community referrals.
Birthright starts by listening with love and understanding. We don’t make decisions for you and we don’t pressure you. Together we will look at your individual situation, explore your options, and work with you to meet your particular needs.
Birthright of Burlington began welcoming clients in December of 1990. We are staffed by trained volunteers prepared to offer personal attention and confidential help to anyone involved in a pregnancy, whether they are single or married, regardless of age, race, creed, or income. Birthright’s services are available for both women and men.
Birthright receives no state or federal funding. We operate solely by donations from many generous individuals and through two annual fund-raisers.
Everyone who works with the clients at Birthright does so on a volunteer basis. The desire of each volunteer is to simply be present and to help without judgment or agenda. Some of the volunteers at Birthright have been here for many years. We believe in the importance of the work we do and we have seen miracles happen because of it.
