Our mission is to provide, promote, and protect access to sexual and reproductive health care.
Since 1963, PPCW has provided a broad range of sexual and reproductive health care, family planning and other medical services; trained and educated community members on issues of sexuality; and advocated for the protection of reproductive rights and freedom in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
We serve more than 72,000 patient visits at our health centers in Beaverton, Bend, Milwaukie-Oak Grove, NE Portland, SE Portland, and Salem, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington. Our expert team of caring physicians, nurse practitioners, and nurses provides a wide range of health care services, including low-cost birth control, emergency contraception, gynecological check-ups and Pap tests, breast exams, cervical cancer detection and treatment, testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, vasectomy (sterilization for men), pregnancy testing and options information, early abortion care, and referrals for prenatal care, parenting and adoption.
Our team of trained educators provides comprehensive sexual health education programs to more than 30,000 youth and parents in our community each year. Our goal is to provide young people with the tools that they need to make informed, responsible choices. We reach out to young people through our teen peer education programs, development sessions for high-risk youth, educational presentations to schools and community groups, and professional training for youth service providers.
PPCW partners with Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest, which are visible and powerful political organizations advocating for reproductive rights and reproductive health issues wherever public policy is deliberated and formed. PPAO has a grassroots network of more than 35,000 supporters and community-based Leadership & Advocacy Teams. Through our shared efforts, Oregon is a state with no restrictions on abortion and family planning services.
