Types of Support
The Bridge Collective has been forced to pause our work while we evaluate the impact of the June 2022 Supreme Court decision.
Through the STAND program, Bridge Collective volunteers provide no-cost rides to and from abortion appointments. TBC takes drive requests for drives within 100 miles of an Austin clinic. We take requests for longer rides on a case by case basis. In some instances, we are able to offer support with lodging and childcare. When you have an appointment, leave a voicemail on the hotline (512) 524 9822 or fill out the intake form. A volunteer intake coordinator will call you back in 24-hours to talk about your appointment needs.
About The Bridge Collective
Our mission is to provide practical, responsive support for abortion services and reproductive healthcare resources for Central Texans. Our skilled volunteers provide transportation and accommodation for people seeking abortions and deliver reproductive health resources in the Central Texas area. By mobilizing the power of volunteers, we strive to bridge the gap to ensure that all Central Texans have equal access to abortion care. The Bridge Collective was founded in 2012 as a full spectrum doula collective. Our founders provided doula support for “all bodies, all choices”. As Texas passed more and more abortion restrictions, the Bridge Collective shifted from abortion doula support to practical support. What hasn’t changed is our dedication to providing compassionate support to Central Texans seeking reproductive healthcare and abortion.
