You have gotten us through tough times.

Are you curious about what it's been like for us to work through a global pandemic?

In the video below, you can watch Connie and Ash reflect on the challenges of 2021, what they're most proud of, and what's next for their work at The Firecracker Foundation

"It has been really amazing working for an organization that is dedicated to the wellness of not just our clients but also to us as the people who are providing care."

Connie Perkins is the Program Director + Lead Midwife for the Perinatal Advocacy Program and Ash Meadow is the Operations Administrator giving all of the behind-the-scenes magic that keeps this organization afloat. 

While we continue to be limited by the ever-changing conditions of a global pandemic, we have still been able to provide:

  • pre/postpartum care to pregnant and parenting teens (including catching 6 babies!)
  • cultivating a network of doulas
  • providing free Plan B, condoms, and diapers
  • ongoing training and professional development 

While we may need to change course way more than any of us would like, we are able to move at a pace that keeps us well because of donors like you who value careworkers

Thank you for your generosity + care!
