Birthline is a non-profit organization supported by volunteers and a Board of Directors. Birthline subsists entirely on donations and money acquired through various events throughout the year and does not receive any government funding.
Birthline was founded by Catherine Ewers, a married mother living in San Diego in 1979. She founded Birthline as a non-profit organization dedicated to helping mothers in times of crisis to make "life" an option. She developed a program by which she could give women the resources needed to carry their baby to term, and either parent or opt for adoption upon the birth of her child.
Life is Amazing
Birthline is a crisis oriented program which provides emotional support, material assistance and referrals to other community resources for any pregnant woman, as well as women and single fathers with small children. We at Birthline recognize that choices made regarding an unplanned pregnancy can have a life long effect on all of those involved. As a result, our counselors offer practical assistance and refferals to support them in their decisions. Birthline has beautiful choices to offer. Choices that will benefit not only the parents, but the child as well.
