PPSP provides high-quality, affordable health care for women, men, and teens. Our experienced and caring medical staff gives each client honest information and personal attention. We provide a range of reproductive and general health services including birth control, abortion, prenatal care, pregnancy testing, STD screening and treatment, sterilization and counseling.
PPSP has one of the largest Community Services and Education Program in the country which provides comprehensive, responsible, age appropriate sexuality education and case management services to more than 36,000 youth, teens, parents and adults annually. Our trained health educators and case managers design presentations, programs, and services which utilize the resources of the entire organization and are tailored to the diverse needs of the communities they serve.
With its robust advocacy programs, PPSP:
- Helps ensure all teens and families have access to medically accurate sex education;
- Secures public funding to subsidize family planning for those clients without funds to access services;
- Works to ensure that decisions about childbearing are made by a woman, in consultation with her family, her doctor, and her conscience, not the government or politicians.
