We offer love, friendship, and support to women who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant. Birthright is interdenominational and is not involved in any political activities, or lobbying. Birthright’s focus is on loving the mother, reminding her that there is hope and ensuring she is not alone.

The Pottawattamie County Community Foundation awarded Birthright a $1,000.00 Impact Grant in June 2020. These grant funds will be used to provide infant formula vouchers to our clients. Formula vouchers are given to parents who request help to purchase formula. The parent shops for the formula at one of the Council Bluffs HyVee Grocery stores and uses the voucher to pay for the formula. The grant is particularly helpful during the COVID 19 crisis as the number of requests for formula vouchers has increased. Thank you to everyone who financially contributes to the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation.
