Do you have a compassionate heart? Do you care about others? Have you participated in a 40 Days for Life campaign?
Do you feel a nudge to do more?
If so, perhaps God is calling to work on the front-line in His mission for life. As a sidewalk advocate with Sidewalks of Hope, an affiliate of Sidewalk Advocates for Life (SAFL), you offer Jesus’s message of hope, love and forgiveness to others. Yours is the role of the disciple and evangelizer.
Each interaction begins with a friendly smile, a wave, followed by an attempt to find out what is going on in the mother’s life and where she needs help. The literature you provide lists the many service organizations ready to provide her with the help she deserves.
You will never be alone! We will help you discern your calling. You won’t be pressured or rushed. If approved, you’ll receive sidewalk advocacy training from SAFL. It’s the best training available!!!
A quote often attributed to St. Francis comes to mind, “All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.”
You can be that candle! You can be that light!!!
One of the most important roles at the abortion facility is that of the prayer partner.
As a front-line volunteer you actively participate in the spiritual battle between life and death, good and evil, truth and falsehood.
You call upon God’s grace in the lives of all you meet and faithfully pray while on the sidewalk, especially when a sidewalk advocate is speaking with an abortion minded woman. Your prayer opens her heart to Jesus’s message of hope, love and forgiveness.
You are a source of strength on the sidewalk! Your presence is a powerful witness to life for all those who see you!
Another important role in the pro-life ministry is that of the Prayer Associate.
Your faithfulness to prayer benefits not only those on the front-lines, but also the mothers in need, and healing prayers for those we encounter on the sidewalk, as well as those submitting special prayer requests to Sidewalks of Hope.
Your prayers rise up to God, bringing honor and glory to His name. He hears you! He knows you! He loves you and He answers you!
Your communication and social medial skills will help our voice reach out to those in the surrounding area who are seeking to work in God’s pro-life ministry. Through words, images and videos you encourage them to get involved!
If you have experience in social media, creating content, developing video, or designing web-sites we look forward to your help.
With your help our ministry will grow and more women will choose life!

Women often tell us they were having second thoughts, or they were uncertain about having an abortion, and we gave them the information they needed to choose life. Others say they had been praying for a sign. When they saw us, they took us to be that sign because of our compassionate and peaceful presence.
With your help more women will choose life!
Please join us!
Research complied by UnChoice.com sheds some light on that question. Of post-abortive women:
However, of women who chose abortion, 82 percent would have chosen life had even ONE person encouraged them to do so. If only someone had been on the sidewalk. The good news is that, YOU can be that person!
