Trust Women Fund was founded in early 2009 in order to provide financial aid to women who needed abortion care but could not afford it. Trust Women Fund became a 501(c)3 non-profit and joined the National Network of Abortion Funds in November of 2009. Since 2009 TWF worked directly with the local woman’s health care provider, Mountain Country Women’s Clinic, loaning or granting almost $100,000 to clients of the clinic. Trust Women Fund is and was a dedicated group of volunteers who saw a need in our community and came together to ensure that women and girls would be guaranteed access to their reproductive rights previously unreachable because of financial hardships.
On September 30, 2013 Mountain Country Women’s Clinic closed it’s doors to allow Dr. Wicklund to retire. We are hoping for a new leader in the medical community to carry the proverbial torch and provide affordable abortion care to the women of this area. For now, clients are forced to travel a minimum of 2-4 hours (one way) in order to receive care, incurring loss of work and additional child care costs. By allowing women to be treated with dignity and respect we help them to help themselves. Patients of Dr. Wicklund have come back to the clinic to share the birth of their first child, a child born of their choosing, and thanking Dr. Wicklund for allowing them to be the mothers they wanted to be, when the time was right for them.
