The mission of the Family Planning program is to provide family planning services to men and woman of reproductive age. The clinic accepts medicaid payments and private pay. A sliding fee scale, based on client’s income, had been established to assist low-income families to obtain services. In addition, grant funds are available for those who meet certain eligibility requirements.
All clients will receive the education and counseling to make a personal choice. All services are confidential. Education and counseling are directed toward health promotion and disease prevention.
