About Save the Storks:

Save the Storks is a nonprofit life-affirming organization that serves women, men, and saves babies. Our dream for a future that includes Equal Access to Motherhood through our state-of-the-art mobile medical clinics, our innovative and medically focused National Partner Program, and empowering churches in America to stand up for life and serve moms, dads, and families in their communities.

Our organization is doing things different with a small but mighty team of experts working across the United States. We have 34 employees, 700 volunteers, and thousands of supporters who believe in our work.

The United States has lost over 65 million pre-born children since 1973, and until we recognize that a baby in the womb is a human being, millions more will not have the opportunity to live. It is only when we recognize that a woman in an unintended pregnancy deserves equal access to
motherhood, just as a woman does with a planned pregnancy, that our society can be family centric once again. We believe that families serve as vital indicators of the overall health and well-being of a society, acting as the foundational building blocks that shape the social fabric. The strength, stability, and functionality of families reflect the broader dynamics within a community. Health families provide emotional support, nurturing environments, and a sense of belonging, fostering the development of individuals who are better equipped to contribute positively to society.

Save the Storks believes that both the mother and the father of a baby deserve to have a voice, and that the community and local church must step up to provide love, compassion, and meaningful resources to single parents and couples who need extra support during the pregnancy and after the baby is born.

Thank you for embarking on this life-saving journey with us!
