How we work
NOAF offers financial assistance to people seeking abortion care who live in or are traveling to South Louisiana. The two clinics in South Louisiana are Women's Health Care Center in New Orleans, and the Delta Clinic in Baton Rouge. If you are a resident of South Louisiana who must travel outside the state, contact NOAF by phone for more information.
Both clinics provide expert, confidential, and respectful abortion care. Please contact them for more information about the services they provide.
Hope Medical Group, in North Louisiana, has funding for their own clients. Contact the clinic directly for questions about services and funding.
