As a supporter of Planned Parenthood, you may receive several communications a year from a variety of Planned Parenthood organizations. Each of these organizations play a vital role in our mission and each is responsible for different activities in support of Planned Parenthood’s vision.
Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon provides health care and education throughout eight counties of Southwestern Oregon. We also support advocacy work done by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon and Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
