2019 Accomplishments
In the past year, TBAF has seen tremendous growth. We have proudly funded over 70 abortions in the Tampa Bay area.

In May, we expanded from working solely with the Clearwater Bread & Roses clinic to fund women in St. Pete. We also began providing contraception for our clients.

In August, we partnered with the National Abortion Federation (NAF). We agreed to work with all seven NAF member clinics in Tampa Bay to provide abortion funding and also logistics such as transportation and childcare.

In October, we partnered with The Abortion Project to provide our women with abortion aftercare kits.

In November, we funded our first out of state abortion for a minor who could not be treated in Florida.

In November, we enrolled as a member of the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF).
Who do we help?
"I am so thankful for the TBAF.
Not only was I provided financial support for my procedure, they were also there for me emotionally and that's something I will forever be grateful for.
The original place I was supposed to go to didn't accept financial help from any other foundations, so when I called TBAF, extremely upset, they immediately set me up with a clinic that would help me and work with TBAF to completely cover the balance of my procedure.
TBAF also covered my Uber rides to and from the clinic I went to. My procedure would not have been possible without this assistance.
I will always be thankful for and give my full support to TBAF!"

"The Tampa Bay Abortion Fund gave me another chance.
I am a mother of 3, a full time employee and I also am in school. I found out I was pregnant and my youngest is 9 months. How can this happen to me? Why? I thought I would never be in this position, but I was.
I couldn’t come up with the funds to get an abortion, I was having a completely panic attack and melt down.
I came across TBAF, and they immediately paid for the abortion and the next day, I was there. I do NOT REGRET my decision. I wholeheartedly thank TBAF for saving my life because it was about to go south quick."

Florida Senate Bill 404, the forced parental consent bill, will be heard by the Florida Senate Health Quality Committee Tuesday December 10th.
