Spirit of Schlifer

Spirit of Schlifer campaign

The Spirit of Schlifer campaign began last spring amid the COVID-19 pandemic to fund our essential services and bring together past and present supporters of the Clinic. Today, almost one year later, the Clinic’s top priority continues to be ensuring the health and safety of our clients, staff and volunteers. As an essential service we are committed to keeping our doors open, physical, and virtually, to women who need our help.

You can help women seeking services that are critical to reducing their isolation and increasing their safety.

Help us reach our goal of $180,000
