80thLogo90x90.png  PPMH Celebrates 80th Anniversary

In 1935, when families were struggling in the depths of the Great Depression, a small group of committed people established the Schenectady County Birth Control League.

With one volunteer nurse and merely $500 in contributions they provided affordable birth control to married women in Schenectady. This was the humble beginning of Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson.


Transforming lives in your community

Birth control has enabled women to achieve educational, employment and personal goals that were unthinkable just a generation or two ago. We’re proud of our legacy of providing health services that have transformed women’s lives.


No other organization does what Planned Parenthood does

Today, thousands of women, men and youth in your community rely on Planned Parenthood for affordable, confidential cancer screening, birth control, STI testing and more.


Help us celebrate this historic milestone, at the Annual Celebration, November 5th. Join us for an evening of joy at the exquisite Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia, NY. Click here for details and to register.
