What We Do
At Planned Parenthood Mid and South Michigan (PPMSM), we believe that prevention is the key to a healthy life. That’s why more than 97 percent of our services are preventive. We also believe that everyone should have access to essential, preventive, reproductive health care. We offer services on a sliding-fee scale based on the patient’s ability to pay.
PPMSM helps build healthy communities by providing medically-accurate information and innovative programming around sexual health. We replace fear with facts, and misinformation with education. We’re here for moms and dads who might be uncertain about - or just don’t’ know - how to talk to their teens about sex. And we’re here for schools and teens who need comprehensive sex education programs that teach both abstinence and pregnancy prevention. We advocate for policies that support reproductive health of the communities we serve.
Working closely with Planned Parenthood Affiliates of Michigan, Planned Parenthood’s statewide public policy and organizing body, PPMSM engages the community in advocacy around broad issues that affect access to and the provision of affordable reproductive health care.
PPMSM serves 31 Michigan counties that are home to 83 percent of the state’s population. Our 17 health centers are in Ann Arbor, Ann Arbor West, Battle Creek, Benton Harbor, Brighton, Burton, Detroit, Ferndale, Flint, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Livonia, Owosso, Saginaw, Warren, and Ypsilanti.
