The mission of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles is to provide convenient and affordable access to a comprehensive range of quality reproductive health care and sexual health information, through patient services, education and advocacy.
Planned Parenthood Los Angeles is made up of three areas:
Planned Parenthood Los Angeles is the largest provider of reproductive health care services in Los Angeles County. We provide health services to more than 140,000 women, men and teens in Los Angeles County each year, 94% of whom come to us for family planning services, and 78% of whom are at or below the federal poverty level. Planned Parenthood Los Angeles' health care professionals create a non-judgmental, relaxed environment for our clients. All of our services are safe and convenient with seventeen health center locations and two Planned Parenthood Basics throughout LA County.
Planned Parenthood Los Angeles's education and outreach programs deliver sexuality and family planning education to more than 70,000 teens, women and men each year. Our outreach programs include middle and high school responsible sexuality courses, parent-child communication programs, Promotoras Comunitarias (Latina community health educators), and teen education programs. Presentations are tailored to the need of each audience, with subjects ranging from puberty to mid-life issues and abstinence to contraception.
Planned Parenthood Los Angeles works to involve people and impact decision-makers in the fight to secure and protect access to a full range of quality reproductive health care services. We work at the local, state and federal level to advocate for medically accurate sexuality education, contraceptive equity, patient safety, abortion rights, and affordable access to reproductive health care for all people.
