Unfortunately, BAF is no longer taking new clients for January. Our budget is nearly exhausted, and we are only following up with clients who have already reached out.
If you have an appointment in February, please contact us on February 1.
BAF can help lower the total cost of an abortion for those living in or traveling to Maryland for care.
Funding is available Monday - Saturday. We do not monitor our warmlines or contact clients on Sundays or during the following closures:
- Monday, February 19, 2024
- Saturday, May 18 - Monday, May 27, 2024
Please call at least 48 hours before your appointment time to speak with a Case Manager about funding options. With less than 48 hours' notice, we may not reach you in time to help.
If you need transportation or lodging for your appointment, please visit our Practical Support page.
If you are a Maryland resident or you are traveling to Maryland for an abortion, please complete our client intake form. Once submitted, one of our Case Managers will contact you within 72 hours, Monday - Friday.
If you'd prefer to call and leave a message, use our confidential helpline at (443) 853-8445. A Case Manager will call back within 72 hours, Monday - Friday.
When leaving a message, you will be asked to provide the following information:
- Your name
- Callback phone number
- Where you’re calling from
- How far along you are in your pregnancy
- The appointment date and clinic name
- Whether it’s unsafe to identify ourselves as the Baltimore Abortion Fund, leave a voicemail, or send a text.
We can provide you with a referral if you do not have an appointment scheduled, please indicate this in your voicemail.
If you called our helpline and left a message, please do not fill out an intake form, and vice versa.
