Welcome to Planned Parenthood of Central and Greater Northern New Jersey, providing reproductive health care, education and advocacy serving Bergen, Hunterdon, Ocean, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Somerset, Sussex, Union, and Warren counties.
Planned Parenthood of Central and Greater Northern New Jersey, Inc. (PPCGNNJ) provides high-quality, comprehensive, accessible, and affordable reproductive and complementary health care services, emphasizing privacy, confidentiality, dignity and sexual self-determination. We advocate for public policies that guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services. We provide and support education programs that expand understanding of human sexuality.
Planned Parenthood of Greater Northern New Jersey and Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey merged on January 1, 2012 to become Planned Parenthood of Central and Greater Northern New Jersey, Inc. On April 1, 2015, Planned Parenthood Association of the Mercer Area merged with Planned Parenthood of Central and Greater Northern New Jersey.
The merging of these affiliates brings together organizations with decades of experience in providing reproductive health care and education to teens, women and men.
What began with a small group of volunteers calling attention to "the desirability of making motherhood voluntary and intelligent, rather than accidental and indiscriminate," has grown to an organization serving teens, women and men in 11 counties and 16 communities in New Jersey.
Along with the direct services that we deliver to our clients, we have been and continue to be a strong and clear voice advocating for reproductive and preventative health care rights.
