ABOUT US

Birthright of Sunbury is a Chapter of Birthright International.  Birthright International was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1968 by Louise Summerhill.  The local Birthright of Sunbury Office opened in 1983.   Women and men from local churches in a four county area joined together to make it possible to open the first office at 351 Woodlawn Avenue in Sunbury.  We are presently located at 40 S. 5th Street, Suite 1, Sunbury, PA 17801.  The Office Hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

The essence of Birthright is love.  Birthright offers every young woman who comes to our office friendship, practical advice and basic needs such as free pregnancy tests, diapers, baby formula, referrals, baby layettes and crib mattress vouchers.

Birthright is pro-life, non-judgmental, non-profit, inter-denominational, not-political, all volunteer, abortion alternative organization.  We offer help regardless of age, economic status, ethnicity or circumstance.  Birthright provides a positive and loving alternative to abortion.

The first thing we can do to help a woman who is distressed is to determine if she really is pregnant.  A free pregnancy test is done. If the pregnancy is confirmed, we will discuss the problems she is facing and determine her needs.  We will assist in finding financial, medical and housing assistance for those who need it.  We offer assistance in finding help through social or community agencies according to the individual needs of the pregnant woman.  We offer ongoing help and encouragement.

We depend on donations from individuals, churches, groups and foundations in the four-county area of Montour, Snyder, Union and Northumberland.  Our volunteers belong to different faiths and are from diverse backgrounds.  The friendly listeners and Board members are all volunteers.  As Birthright volunteers, we do not picket abortion clinics, lobby for legislation or engage in public debate on abortion.

At present, we are in need of office volunteers.  Training is held in the Birthright Office.  Our Office number is (570)286-8560 and the 24 hour hotline number is 1-800-550-4900.  The Director is Dee Romine and President is Laurie Berard.
