Technical Assistance

 

Technical Assistance at Provide
Technical assistance allows Provide to engage with previously trained organizations and further support them in integrating and sustaining high-quality abortion referrals.

We do this by partnering with the organizations we’ve trained and offering support in:

-Improving processes and policies to sustain the quality of abortion referrals
-Building staff knowledge and capacity for providing non-judgmental compassionate services to women
-Facilitating Staff Access to Information and Resources on Abortion Referrals
-Facilitating Patient Access to Information and Resources on Abortion Referrals and improving quality of care

We are currently working to enhance the package of technical assistance we offer to the organizations that we train. For every organization that we work with, we will offer a post-training report that analyzes and collects feedback from the training and a customized assistance plan.

The technical assistance plan will allow Provide‘s technical assistance team to effectively work with an organization to strengthen abortion referrals. We see technical assistance as an opportunity for collaboration that leads to delivering the best possible referrals services to women in the states where we work. We look forward to collaborating with you. Please feel free to email technicalassistance@provideaccess.org if you would like to request a training or have recently been trained and would like to request technical assistance. All of Provide’s services are free of charge to the organizations that we work with.

 


See what Provide training participants are saying about receiving technical assistance:

“The girl who did that training was amazing. She was very down-to-earth, very conversational, very knowledgeable about what she was talking about. We even met after the training to see how Provide could be a resource to us, especially in government, as we get lots of calls. She’s been a great linkage for us.”

“I thought it was wonderful. I actually used several of the resources given to us in our Provide packets to train our volunteers. I’ve been using the material to continue to educate our most active volunteers. It’s been incredibly helpful. One of the things that I really loved was the short little quiz that was taken in the beginning. It had a bunch of little reproductive health questions. I made copies and gave them to our volunteers. I know I was stumped by a couple and I’ve been studying reproductive justice and reproductive health for years, so it just goes to show how much there is to learn.”

“We took some of the yellow sheets and put them in our volunteer handbook, since we have volunteers that respond to crisis calls. We put it in our three-ring binders for resources, so when they get a crisis call they have those numbers available. We made it available to all of our volunteers. It specifically included the financial assistance, abortion referrals, and Greenville clinic.”

“I think the trainings you are doing are great. In both trainings the trainers were very open to us contacting them if we had any questions. I haven’t had to use them but I definitely appreciate the option. I will definitely use it if I need it.”
