In the summer of 2009, a small group of diverse Jewish women in the DC metro area came together to make a difference. Together, we founded In Shifra's Arms, a unique Jewish nonprofit to help women with unplanned pregnancy crises.
With no full-time staff or paid administrators, we have helped more than 200 women and children, 65% of them in the last 3.5 years.
We offer substantial support from a woman's first trimester to her baby's first birthday and beyond. No pressure, no strings attached. Whatever her ultimate choices are, every client receives sensitive and caring follow up.
Whatever a woman’s challenges are, she can lean on us. Our team is available to help Jewish women from NY to LA, from Miami to Cleveland.
