The mission of Planned Parenthood Keystone is to provide and promote access to the essential health care services and comprehensive education people need to live healthy lives and build strong communities.
Our health services include family planning and birth control, cancer screenings, testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, abortion care, pregnancy testing, and education. We provide essential, confidential services in a comfortable, professional setting.
Planned Parenthood believes that informed choices begin with education. We conduct presentations for schools, community groups, religious organizations, and nonprofits on topics related to birth control and pregnancy, abstinence, sexually transmitted diseases, family planning and reproductive health. This information is taught in a context of decision-making, personal values, responsibility, and relationships so that teens gain a thorough understanding of sexuality and its consequences for themselves and their partners.
Planned Parenthood supports each citizen’s right to make informed decisions regarding his or her health. We work diligently with national, state, and local policy makers to uphold access to all aspects of reproductive health care. We strive to develop a large network of grassroots supporters who are committed to defending and increasing access to family planning services, abortion services, and sexuality education.
Behind our mission are these central values and core beliefs:
We value CHOICE:
We believe that all people have the basic right to decide freely and responsibly whether to bear children, and if so, the number and spacing of their children. We believe people must have the information, education and means to exercise their reproductive decisions. We believe that the exercise of these rights by people will affect their own welfare and the welfare of their children, as well as the welfare of the community and of society as a whole.
We value DIVERSITY:
Throughout all aspects of our work, we respect individuals and are sensitive to all cultures.
We value OUR COMMUNITY:
We promote an environment of mutual support, trust, and respect among our Board, volunteers, patients, clients, employees, and supporters.
We value OUR PATIENTS:
Our medical centers focus on meeting patients’ needs and respecting their dignity and privacy.
We value EDUCATION:
We promote responsible decision-making through the provision of medically accurate, age appropriate, comprehensive sexuality education.
We value EXCELLENCE:
Excellence is integral to all that we are and all that we do.
