Your love MAGNIFIED.

Announcing the expansion to area partners!
Announcing the expansion to area partners!

YOU loved this project into reality with your big generosity.

In 2019, thirteen pregnant and parenting teens had access to reproductive health education, doula services, and labor support. YOU empowered, supported and amplified the voices of young parents.

And now, we are so excited to share that your love has been magnified by WomenStrong International

In urban communities across the United States, black and brown people are dying in pregnancy and childbirth at rates more than three times those of their counterparts. This is compounded by the fact that survivors of sexual violence have a higher risk of experiencing re-traumatization during pregnancy.

YOU are upending these disparities by helping pregnant and parenting teen survivors access reproductive health care at The Firecracker Foundation.

You started this work by believing 13 pregnant and parenting teen survivors deserved more from their community.

Your critical support paired with funding from WomenStrong International will make it possible for more than 100 pregnant and parenting teens to have access to the services they need to have healthy pregnancies, good birthing experiences, trauma-informed care, and more!

YOU are healing generations.

Thank you.
