National Campus Resource Directory for Pregnant and Parenting Students


Visit the site

The guide for pregnant and parenting students comes just in time to kick off the latest school year and the new directory, jointly sponsored by Feminists for Life of America and Students for Life of America, will provide links to essential resources, state by state, school by school.

“Our goal is to hasten the day when no woman feels forced to choose between her education and career plans and her child” says Serrin Foster, the president of Feminists for Life. “The inspiration for FFL’s new campus directory came from hearing story after story from women who couldn’t find the resources they needed. Finding the basics that support life—housing, childcare, maternity coverage and financial aid—shouldn’t be an ordeal, but it is. The result is that pregnant college-aged students resort to abortion or drop out of school and potentially face a lifetime of poverty. Neither is desirable. Women deserve better. Being pregnant, being a birthmother, or having a family shouldn’t be a barrier to an education.”
