Pacifica Family Fund (PFF) aims to increase equitable access to safe, respectful midwifery care at Pacifica Family Maternity Center (PFMC), a freestanding, accredited birth center in Berkeley, CA.
PFF was established in 2017 as a fiscally sponsored project of the Social Good Fund, a non-profit organization registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3). PFF is focused on fundraising and grant-making to provide access to the full spectrum of prenatal, birth, postpartum, and newborn care at PFMC for families with lower income.
Our vision is a world where all people have excellent and equal perinatal health outcomes. In our community, we envision a future where all Bay Area families, regardless of socioeconomic status, have access to safe, respectful midwifery care at Pacifica Family Maternity Center.
Pacifica Family Fund's mission is to provide financial support for families with low income to access community-centered midwifery care and education about birth choices at Pacifica Family Maternity Center.
To accomplish our mission, PFF strives to deliver equal access and information for pregnant persons and families of the Bay Area with diverse socioeconomic status to receive safe, supportive perinatal health care and midwifery services. We work to create an inclusive community of families across gender, sex, race, ethnicity, age and socioeconomic class differences. Through community partnerships, PFF provides outreach and connects families to PFMC for education about the birth process and ways to reclaim its dignity. PMFC offers a nurturing, safe space for birth. We prioritize applications for financial support towards midwifery care from underserved populations including: people of color, teenagers, those with low income, immigrants, single parents, and trans/gender nonconforming people.
