When a group of concerned Orange County visionaries got together in 1965, they created the groundwork for providing local people with the education and medical care they needed to plan their families.

Our first Health Center opened at 211 S. Broadway in Santa Ana, CA, in 1968. Today, Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties offers a full range of reproductive and primary care care services, as well as comprehensive sexual health education and nutrition services.
