A Second-Trimester Haven – Giving U™
The most fulfilling volunteer work I did was in NYC. For more than a year, I volunteered for Haven, a truly fabulous organization that provides a safe place for women to stay when they need to travel to NYC to obtain a second trimester abortion.
Basically, you open up your home to a woman to spend the night during the 2-day procedure. I met the most courageous women, learned a lot about this important issue and gave in a way that was more than mere lip service to an issue I feel passionate about supporting.
Haven is run like an underground-railroad, so it has no website, just a network held together by cell phone. If you’re interested in volunteering / donating to this great organization, I’m happy to put you in touch with the right people.
