​About The MD Family Planning Program



Mission
The Maryland Family Planning Program makes sexual and reproductive health services accessible and affordable to support the life and health goals of all Marylanders.


Vision 
The Maryland Family Planning Program envisions a Maryland where all individuals can access quality health services and are guaranteed their right to bodily autonomy, to choose when and whether to have children, and to live healthy and happy lives. 


Values 
Services are welcoming, safe, affordable, convenient, and high-quality. Clients are cared for and respected, centered in decision-making, and in control of their own bodies. 
Staff are diverse, supported in their professional goals, and encouraged to think creatively and speak up when change is needed. Staff are provided the training, tools, and support they need to meet the mission and vision of the Maryland Family Planning Program.

About the Program 
The Maryland Family Planning Program (MFPP) has delivered comprehensive family planning, sexual and reproductive health, and related preventive health services to communities in need across Maryland for over thirty years. The MFPP collaborates with 22 agencies to provide services through a well-established network of 60 comprehensive health care service sites in 22 of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions. The agencies include local health departments in Baltimore City and 18 additional counties, non-profit health organizations, and federally-qualified health centers. No one is ever denied services at MFPP clinics because of the inability to pay.
