Family PACT (Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment)


Family PACT

We believe that all people should be able to plan when and if they want to have children. That’s why we offer Family PACT. This program helps people get the care and facts they need to plan their families and stay healthy. Sign up at any of our nine health centers.

What is Family PACT?

Family PACT offers free, complete family planning services to people who qualify. It lets them decide the number, timing, and spacing of their children.

Can I use Family PACT?

Family PACT is open to women and men of all ages. To qualify, all these items must be true:

  • You want to prevent an unplanned pregnancy.
  • You live in California.
  • You have a low income for your family size (at or below twice the federal poverty level).
  • You don’t have health insurance. Or you have health insurance that can’t be used for family planning because:
    1. It doesn’t cover any birth control.
    2. You can’t afford the out-of-pocket costs.
    3. You are concerned that someone may find out about your family planning visit.

It’s OK if you don’t have papers.
