History – 50 Years of Service…
Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties was founded on April 16, 1965 by a group of local citizens who saw a need for reliable health services in their community.
In the last 50 years, we have expanded to nine health centers across two counties, been recognized as one of the most trusted brands in Orange County, and have won numerous awards for our outstanding health programs. But one thing has always remained the same — you, our supporters, are among our most valuable assets. We firmly believe as a supporter, you are the foundation for the work we do. We would not be able to do this without you. In 1969, this organization served 769 patients. Last year we saw over 111,000 patients. You made this possible.
