In 1971, the Family Planning Association of Maine (now Maine Family Planning) was founded by a group of individuals dedicated to the proposition that every Maine woman should have equal access to high-quality reproductive health services. Through their tireless efforts, sometimes against great odds, our founders created a force for statewide family planning.
Two Mainers who played a central role in our creation, David and Sherry Huber, went on to advocate for reproductive freedom as members of the Maine Legislature. Myrna Daigle opened the first family planning clinic in Aroostook County and Mabel Sine Wadsworth started the first family planning clinic in Maine to offer contraceptives.
We are building a future where everyone has the human right to bodily autonomy, and the resources and freedom to control their sexual and reproductive lives in safe and sustainable communities.
All people should have the means and information to control their sexual and reproductive lives, regardless of where they live or how much money they have.
We work to create a system of laws and education that supports access to a full range of sexual and reproductive health care.
We believe that diversity allows us to best serve our patients and communities, and that a culture of inclusion invites authentic voices and unique perspectives to contribute to our organization. Working in partnership to reshape our systems to be more inclusive and equitable ensures we can best serve the needs of our communities. Read our Equity Statement here.
We work with individuals and partner with organizations to achieve our vision.
