Mt. Baker Planned Parenthood has been in existence since 1969, beginning as the Family Planning Association of Whatcom County. This program was started by a group of concerned community citizens and medical providers - all volunteers.
In 1970, the agency was accepted as an affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
In 1980, at the request of the Washington State Family Planning Program, services were begun in Skagit County (Mt. Vernon) and the agency name was changed to Mt. Baker Planned Parenthood.
In 1995, at the request of community members, services were begun in San Juan County (Friday Harbor).
For over 41 years, we have provided family planning and unintended pregnancy prevention to teens, women and men.
In 2010, we provided medical services to 11,798 clients for a total of 22,160 medical visits. Our education programs served over 5,950 school-age children, parents, young mothers and special populations including developmentally disabled and incarcerated youth.
