Family Planning Information & Education

Please Note: Given State funding cuts to this program, services are currently in hiatus.  We hope to be able to bring this program back as funding allows.

  • Reduce the number of teens and young adults engaging in high-risk behaviors
  • Decrease the incidence of teen pregnancy
  • Decrease sexually transmitted infections among teens and young adults
