Planned Parenthood California Central Coast

Organization Mission

As the most trusted provider of reproductive health care, we promote the ability of all individuals to lead fulfilled lives, build healthy families, and make informed decisions through high-quality health services, education, and advocacy.

Social Change Project:

As part of our commitment to providing high-quality sexual and reproductive health care, we launched Gender Affirming Care in June 2019. From responses to our LGBTQ+ Community Needs and Assets Assessment, conducted in partnership with Fielding Graduate University, we understand the impact of gender-affirming care on those who seek access to safe, inclusive, trusted health services. Gender Affirming Care includes collaborating with community partners, extensive training for staff, hiring a gender-affirming care navigator, expanding options on all patient and registration intake forms, and identifying referral options. Planned Parenthood is proud to advance gender-affirming care throughout our affiliate service area so that every patient will feel seen, heard, respected, and cared for with dignity and professionalism.
