While DC has long been a safe place for those seeking abortion care, the cost can be prohibitive even for those who have health insurance: $750 for a first-trimester abortion to over $10,000 in the third trimester. As our region's only abortion fund without eligibility requirements, DCAF serves anyone for whom abortion is unaffordable, whether they live in or travel to our region, and regardless of their stage of pregnancy. Individuals can call one of its five helplines, including a Spanish-language line, and are paired with a case manager within 24 hours to identify and secure the funding and practical support needed. Last year alone, DCAF provided more than 7,000 callers with support and with $2.3M in resources. In its 28-year history, DCAF has not turned away a single person in need — because no one should be denied their reproductive rights.
