Mt. Baker Planned Parenthood is a non-profit family planning organization that has been helping women, men and teens make responsible choices about their sexual health for 42 years. In 2010 nearly 12,000 women, men and youth visit Planned Parenthood in the three counties we serve; Whatcom, Skagit, and San Juan.
Dedicated to delivering the highest quality reproductive health care services since 1969, MBPP is also committed to providing responsible, age-appropriate sexuality education. Protecting a woman's fundamental right to choose is also a major part of this organization's underlying philosophy.
