Supporting Individuals and Families in Crisis

We recognize that every individual faces moments in life when they need support and care, especially when it comes to their health and well-being. We are here to stand by you during those times, offering a safe and compassionate haven where you can access free and confidential health services.

Our Mission

Boro Women & Family Services is a collaborative Edinboro, PA and surrounding areas organization which provides free and confidential services to educate and empower individuals in making healthy and informed responsible choices.

Our Vision

Boro Women & Family Services aspires to be a center where women and men are nurtured and enabled to reach their life-affirming goals.

Our History

Our organization began in May of 2009 when a steering committee comprised of community business leaders, pastoral council members, and dedicated volunteers came together with a mission in mind. Boro Women & Family Services officially opened its doors in August of 2009, focusing initially on crisis pregnancy needs within the Edinboro community.

As a private entity, we were able to adapt swiftly and effectively to cater to the unique requirements of the community. In 2016, we expanded from a modest 3-room facility to a 7-room suite, thanks to the generous support of a private donor.  With the expansion, BWS evolved into a dynamic social services hub, addressing a broader spectrum of needs. 

BWS continued to diversify its offerings, adding non-diagnostic ultrasound services in 2015 and introducing new services annually to address the ever-changing needs of the community. One such addition, the Monthly Diaper Distribution, has made a significant difference in the lives of many families within the Edinboro community. 

Our Facility

Conveniently located in the heart of town, Boro Women & Family Services prides itself on its discreet positioning, offering a sense of privacy to individuals seeking its services. The facility has a rich history, once housing a physician’s office and later a psychologist’s office before becoming the home of Boro Women & Family Services. It’s designed for easy access, with all its services situated on a single floor.

The suite boasts a variety of rooms to cater to the diverse needs of the community, making it highly user-friendly. These rooms include a welcoming Waiting Room, the Director’s Office, a space dedicated for Volunteers, a Pantry for storing essential items, a Community Resource Room for secure gatherings and resource access, a Counseling Room offering a comfortable setting for discussions, a Private Ultrasound Room for non-diagnostic ultrasounds, and a versatile Multi-functioning Room suitable for meetings and group activities. This comprehensive setup ensures that Boro Women & Family Services is well-equipped to provide support and assistance to the Edinboro community.
