Karin Barbito is the Director of Programming for Support After Abortion. Originally from Michigan, Karin spent the first 13 years of her career working in the science fields of nuclear engineering and chemistry. For the next eight years, Karin went down a very dark road of alcoholism and drug addiction, which eventually led to homelessness. Facing some pretty severe consequences due to her addiction, Karin got into substance abuse recovery where she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. It was only then that things began to change in Karin’s life. Working through codependency, the pain and struggle from her abortion experience at 18 years old, and other root causes that drove her unhealthy thinking and conduct, put Karin back on the right path. The freedom she experienced completely shifted Karin’s priorities and career interests, prompting her to return to school to pursue an education in social work. Today, Karin serves as the Director of Programming for Support After Abortion. She has developed a system that connects men and women impacted by abortion to the healing they need and deserve as well as providing training and best practices to pregnancy centers and ministries, so they can grow their after abortion programming. Karin firmly believes that God doesn’t waste our pain; in fact, she believes, we find our purpose through it.
