Aid for Women, Inc.

Organization Description: 

Aid for Women is headquartered at 8 S. Michigan Avenue, on the corner of Michigan and Madison, with a second location in Berwyn, IL at 3240 Oak Park Avenue. Both locations provide clients with free pregnancy tests, confidential counseling, assistance in finding the most appropriate personal and community resources available, information on reproductive health and the risks and side effects of abortion. For the time being, ultrasounds are only offered at our Downtown location, and our long-term Mentoring and Bonus programs are run out of the Downtown office as well. We are able to offer our services to those who speak Spanish at our Berwyn location.

Aid for Women is also opening a maternity home, Heather's House, in Des Plaines, IL in the summer of 2011. Many of our clients, in considering whether to choose life, are without a reliable place to live - a circumstance that greatly complicates their ultimate choice. Heather's House will give clients and their babies a loving residential environment where they can stay for up to two years. The women will participate in programs to learn life and parenting skills, further their education and gain the career training necessary to be independent and self-sufficient mothers.

Our general appointment hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm, with extended time on Tuesdays until 6pm. Saturday we are open 10am-12:30pm.
