About Planned Parenthood

Our Purpose

As a trusted health care provider and a passionate advocate, Planned Parenthood delivers vital health care, sex education and sexual health information to thousands of women, men, and teens each year.

Serving Michigan

Planned Parenthood of Michigan is statewide with 20 health centers from Detroit to Benton Harbor to Marquette.

Making a Difference

Health Care Services

Planned Parenthood of Michigan provides services on a sliding-fee scale. This means that patients can come to us for care whether they have insurance or not. If they do not have insurance, the sliding-fee scale based on their family income allows them to pay what they can afford for the services they need. This model is made possible largely through private donations, foundation grants, and Title X (a federally funded family planning program for low-income patients). Your donations and support of the 100 Year Gala allow us to be here for the women, men, and youth who rely on us for high-quality, affordable, accessible health care.

Community Education

Planned Parenthood of Michigan helps build healthy communities by providing medically accurate information and innovative programs around sexual health. We replace fear with facts, and misinformation with education. As our community's leading resource on sexual and reproductive health, we work with teens, young adults, parents, teachers, and health care professionals to provide accurate sexual health information in our communities in a safe, age-appropriate, non-judgmental environment. Our experienced educators tailor all sessions to the needs of the audience.
