What We Do
Project Rachel is a sensitive, private and confidential program, available to help anyone (subsidies are available).
Not only women who have had an abortion, but also partners, other family members, friends or healthcare professionals are welcome.
It begins with a call to the Project Rachel confidential phone line. A staff member will help you to assess your need for psychological counseling. Counselors for one-on-one sessions are available in different locations throughout Southern Alberta. Alternately, you might choose to attend a weekend retreat -- an opportunity to journey with others who are also seeking healing from a past abortion experience -- under the guidance of a professional counselor.
Project Rachel provides you with an opportunity to move forward in a caring and peaceful atmosphere toward reconciliation with yourself and the people around you.
