For more than 75 years, Texans have trusted Planned Parenthood for affordable healthcare and birth control, accurate sexual health information, and to advocate on behalf of women and families.
On September 1, 2012, Planned Parenthood nonprofits in Austin, North Texas, and Waco merged into one regional nonprofit: Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas.
As one of the largest nonprofit healthcare providers in the state, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas continues to serve more than 117,000 Texans in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Paris, Tyler, Waco, and surrounding communities. Essential healthcare and education services include life-saving breast and cervical cancer screenings, HIV testing, and birth control to help families plan and space their pregnancies.
