Family Planning


Family Planning, a private, non-profit clinic, has provided the Ozarks with comprehensive family planning services, as a program of the Ozarks Area Community Action Corporation, since 1979.

Parenthood is one of the greatest responsibilities an individual can face. The decision to become a parent requires careful thought and planning.

We believe ALL individuals should be able to plan and prepare themselves for parenthood and that each child should be a wanted child.

The goal of Family Planning is to provide individuals with low cost quality reproductive health care and the information and supplies necessary to make personal choices in determining the number and spacing of their children.

Services
Physical exams are performed by licensed health professionals, including medical doctors and nurse practitioners. Our counselors are trained to provide sensitive education and counseling regarding family planning options.

Clinic Services Include:

  • routine gynecological exams, which may include: pap smear, pelvic exam, breast exam, weight and blood pressure check, and hematocrit (test for anemia).
  • Screening and treatment of vaginal infections and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
