What is Family Planning?
Family Planning is a New York State Department of Health-funded program that focuses on reducing the incidence of maternal and infant mortality and unintended pregnancy caused by racial, ethnic, and economic disparities in underserved populations. Family Planning provides accessible, confidential, and affordable reproductive health care services to adolescents, women, and men that are low-income individuals and those without health insurance to avoid unintended pregnancy or achieve intended pregnancies.
Family Planning Program
At the Community Health Center of Buffalo, Inc. (CHCB), we offer caring, non-judgmental, and confidential family planning services to low-income teens, women, men, and LGBTQ+ at our Buffalo and Niagara Falls locations. Our expert clinicians are dedicated to educating our patients and providing quality comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services, and preventive services in a patient-centered atmosphere.

We offer a Family Planning Benefit Program for those without health insurance to reduce barriers to care. We respect and protect the dignity of ALL patients. All services are voluntary, and no referrals are required. Individuals under the age of 18 years old can get confidential testing and treatment for STI’s including HIV and birth control without parent and/or guardian consent.
