THE WORK OF PPGP

For 81 years, PPGP has been delivering high-quality, affordable, reproductive health care services.  By providing clinical services, education, training, and advocacy, it seeks to help individuals make informed decisions about their reproductive health, family planning options, and sexuality.  In order to make these ideals a reality, PPGP provides people with accurate information and access to highly trained practitioners for preventive care. PPGP sees a world in which every child is wanted and every woman is trusted to make her own decisions, every choice regarding sexuality is personal and respected, and everyone has access to affordable, quality health care.

Finance Assistant joins PPGP at a pivotal point in its 81-year history. PPGP’s expansion and revitalization of its health center footprint in Arkansas, Kansas, the Mid-Missouri region, and Oklahoma, reinvigoration of its education, outreach, and advocacy initiatives serve to educate a new generation of reproductive health and rights supporters and promote greater access to affordable contraception, preventive treatment, safe abortion, and other critical reproductive health services.

As an affiliate of, and accredited by, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA),  PPGP operates twelve high-quality health centers throughout Arkansas, Kansas, the Mid-Missouri region, and Oklahoma, with a centralized call center and online appointment scheduling. PPGP serves people from diverse backgrounds and with diverse needs. PPGP currently provides reproductive health services in Arkansas, Kansas, the Mid-Missouri region, and Oklahoma.  The medical staff includes three board certified OB/GYN physicians who provides abortion services, as well as nurse practitioners. PPGP’s nurse practitioners collaborate with physicians to provide reproductive health care, perform examinations, and diagnose and treat infections. PPGP receives Title X funding in Missouri and accepts Medicaid and private insurance in both Missouri and Kansas.  During 2015, our health centers provided 40,000 visits for comprehensive reproductive health services to 20,000 patients

PPGP provides comprehensive, age-appropriate sexuality education to more than 5,000 participants each year.  Our education programs promote responsible behavior and honest communication with peers, parents and adults.  Teens are given information about how to deal with social pressure and are given medically accurate information about contraception.  Programs offer a variety of interactive sexuality education presentations to schools, churches and community groups on a broad range of topics.

PPGP is a leading advocate for the reproductive rights of women and men in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma working tirelessly to block legislation that restricts access to sex education, contraceptives, and abortion.  To conduct more in-depth advocacy efforts, PPGP created the Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes (PPGPV), a sister corporation of PPGP organized under IRS Section 501(c)4. This classification allows PPGPV to engage in political activities and make additional lobbying expenditures that would not be allowed under PPGP’s 501(c)3 tax status. PPGPV maintains professional lobbying programs in Topeka and Jefferson City; monitors federal, state and local legislation and analyzes its effects on PPGP and our clients; informs supporters about proposed legislation and encourages contact with their legislators; and recruits, trains and supports volunteers to work in a variety of advocacy roles.
