Who We Are

REVOLUTIONIZING THE MEANING OF PRO-LIFE

It all started in the Bronx, with one van that inspired some visionary questions:

What if there was a way to reach abortion-vulnerable women right where they are, right where they live and work? What if there were people who loved these women enough to invest their time in providing the care and resources needed to truly give them the freedom to choose?

That would revolutionize what it means to be pro-life.

Here at Save the Storks, those are the “what ifs” that we want to make reality. Beginning in 2012, we have realized this mission by partnering with Pregnancy Resource Centers all across America, and our prayerful hope is that we’ve only just begun.

We're here for them.

PREGNANCY RESOURCE CENTERS

There is only so much we can do behind the scenes. We partner with pregnancy resource centers across the country who are the immediate conduit for the love, compassion, and action that we believe God calls us to. Equipped with their very own mobile medical units, affectionately called “Stork Buses,” these centers are able to bring the vital medical care of free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds right to the women who need them most.

Our affiliates do a fantastic job of providing spiritual, emotional, and material support to the women in their communities.

Given the vital importance of these centers, we have expanded our ministry to support them and raise awareness of the work that they are doing. Along with equipping centers for mobile medical ministry, we offer a number of counseling and consulting services in hopes of enabling them to more efficiently and effectively serve their unique communities.

Their hard work and impact continually inspire us to dream bigger, hope more radically, and look forward toward our joint goal of making abortion unthinkable.

Our mission at Save the Storks is to revolutionize the meaning of pro-life

HOW WE’LL DO THIS

  • Change the language and conversation around pro-life
  • Create innovative ways to engage and serve abortion-vulnerable women and save babies
  • Equip grassroots leaders with strategies and tools to provide love, compassion, and action to women in crisis pregnancies
  • Mobilize cultural influencers to create catalytic change

We have a big vision

One of our deepest desires is to change the conversation around the pro-life movement. We don’t want to engage the current debate; we want to revolutionize it. We want to shift the focus away from divisive language to a dialogue of hope and true empowerment, by meeting women in their time of need with love, compassion, and action that supports them no matter what. Our mission is to move hearts and minds, enabling them to see that life, whatever the circumstance, is always worth celebrating.

We invite you to help us revolutionize the meaning of pro-life.

OUR FOUNDING STORY

Rather than going on a traditional honeymoon, Joe and Ann Baker took a year-long road trip to raise funds and inspire America with a new expression of pro-life. Together they founded Save the Storks to take the resources of free ultrasounds and pregnancy tests to women who needed them most. By innovating the Stork Bus, the Bakers and the Stork team helped extend the reach of pregnancy resource centers across the country. At year-end 2019, an estimated 8,000 children live because their mothers chose life onboard a Stork Bus.

Anyone who has the pleasure of knowing Joe and Ann will quickly recognize their adventurous spirit, big ideas, and passion for life. They pioneered the path on which we walk by thinking out of the box, inspiring change and upholding the standard of excellence and beauty in everything we produce.

Joe Baker is our CEO emeritus. We are honored to continue the legacy he and his wife began. They stepped out with great faith to revolutionize the pro-life movement, and we are seeing God honor their mission. Save the Storks seeks to live with the same dedicated faith, boldness, and sacrifice as its founders invested from the very start. We thank Joe and Ann Baker for all their hard work, sacrifice, and determination to make a difference for life.
