Background Statement
Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri has provided sexuality education and reproductive health care for women, men and youth in the Kansas City area since 1935. Operating 6 health centers throughout Kansas and central and western Missouri, Planned Parenthood provides health care and education to 30,000 persons each year. Planned Parenthood's health care clients receive services for family planning, medical and surgical abortions, screening and prevention for cervical cancer, screening for breast cancer, and screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.
 
In addition to providing reproductive health services and sex education, PPKM also maintains a vigorous advocacy and public information program designed to protect access to services from oppressive legislation. 
 
 
 
 
 
Impact Statement

 

  • Health Care- In 2015, our health centers provided over 40,000 visits for comprehensive reproductive health services to over 20,000 people. Nearly 50% of health care visits were for patients with reported incomes at or below 150% of the federal poverty level.
  • Education- PPKM provides comprehensive, age-appropriate sexual health education to more than 10,000 participants each year. Our education programs provide accurate information about sexual development, healthy relationships, methods of birth control, and how to access reproductive health care.
  • Public Affairs/Advocacy-Through Planned Parenthood Advocates of Kansas and Mid-Missouri (PPAKM), a sister corporation of PPKM organized under IRS Section 501(c)(4), our organization is also the leading voice for reproductive and sexual health advocacy in Kansas and Missouri. We have nearly 400,000 grassroots supporters who are galvanized to protect reproductive rights and women's health through education, advocacy, and grassroots organizing.
  • Successful Fundraising- In 2015, more than $1.9 million was raised in charitable dollars from thousands of donors, including health center patients, individual donors, and foundations.
  • Volunteer Program-In 2015, hundreds of volunteers donated their time and service to help Planned Parenthood as educators, escorts, community ambassadors, and more.
  • Goals for the coming year include merging with Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma (effective July 1, 2016), expanding health services provided to our patients (including transgender care, menopausal care, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis [PrEP], and Post-Exposure Prophylaxis [PEP]); expanding abortion services; renovating and relocating health centers; continuing technology upgrades to improve management and patient experience and expanding education programs in Kansas City, Wichita and Columbia.

 

Needs Statement
  1. PPKM health centers will be a choice not a last resort.  The very best in reproductive health care will be provided to everyone coming to a center. The patient experience will be improved with renovation of health centers in Kansas City, Wichita and Columbia.
  2. Overcoming barriers to abortion services by providing additional access to medical abortion services in Kansas City and Columbia. Currently, there is only one abortion provider in Missouri which is by its very nature a barrier to accessing abortion services. 
  3. Defending access to reproductive health and education services against litigation and legislative challenges.
  4. Upgrading technology to better serve patients and manage resources. These upgrades, such as, improved billing, will enhance services directly affecting patients and improve overall financial management.
  5. Expanding sexual education programs in Kansas City, Columbia and Wichita.  Prevention of unplanned pregnancy and exposure to sexually transmitted infections is foundational work for Planned Parenthood.  The expanded education programs will provide youth with honest, medically accurate and age appropriate information to be responsible and sexually healthy.
