Because your journey is YOUR journey.

ComfortCare’s HEART program is an abortion recovery and support group for women grieving past abortion decisions. No matter your age or beliefs, you can benefit from the HEART program. Grieving is a normal and healthy response to a major loss through death. It is a painful process but one that helps relieve our sorrow and grief.

At ComfortCare, we understand that this is a uniquely personal journey and one program does not necessarily fit each person’s needs. We believe healing from a past abortion decision is so important that we are offering a variety of ways that you can participate depending on your schedule and comfort level. It is our hope that you will find hope and healing through this program, no matter what format that ends up being.

You have options.
