How Your "Friendship" Helps

New families of all identities and socio-economic levels come to Natural Resources for the most valuable education, reliable support, and longest-standing new parenting community in San Francisco.  Natural Resources sustains operations through fundraising and donations in order to support new families in navigating the early years of parenting with empowered, informed community.

We rely upon the generous support of our contributors to make up the difference between what families are able to pay and what it costs for Natural Resources to operate as a full resource center -- staffed with certified doulas, board certified lactation consultants, licensed nurses, and perinatal educators.

Our goal is that all new families have access to quality prenatal and early parenting education, resources, and support. Our programs and services are provided to all families who seek them. We provide partial and full scholarships depending on the level of need. In addition to providing free support groups, classes, and services, Natural Resources is a committed partner to The San Francisco Birth Center and provides free prenatal education and doulas to SFBC Medi-Cal clients; we are currently working to establish partnerships with other non-profits and hospitals serving lower-income families.


More than 7,500 companies offer matching gift programs to their employees and some offer the option to retirees. These companies match, double or even triple the amount an employee gives to a charitable organization. Natural Resources is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, under Federal Tax ID #47-4472162 – your gift could qualify for a match. Contact your human resource department to inquire.
