Our History

A former Center client advocate recently shared a wonderful story with us regarding a client she had several years ago. “This past Fall I was at my daughter’s city league (sports) game when a young man came up to me and asked, ‘Aren’t you Sally? You probably don’t remember me, I’m Robert. My girlfriend (now my wife) came to talk to you at A Woman’s Friend about nine years ago. We were very abortion minded, but you helped us see another way. That’s my daughter out there on your daughter’s team.' He went on to tell me that he had his own business and his family enjoys a very fulfilling life. What really blessed me was that because of A Woman’s Friend that little girl is alive today and enjoying life!”

A Woman’s Friend (AWF) was founded in 1987 by a group of concerned citizens who desired to promote the sanctity of human life, by extending care and assistance to young women facing the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy. We serve more than 2,000 clients each year.

Our clients are offered pregnancy testing and options consultation in a caring and professional manner which allows each young woman to make an informed life decision. View a list of our Client Services.

In 1994 we obtained a medical license from the California Department of Public Health and began offering ultrasound imaging and a one-time visit to see one of our volunteer physicians. Client Services.

AWF serves clients primarily from a three county area (Yuba, Sutter, Colusa) but we welcome whoever comes through our door.
