Planned Parenthood Mar Monte

Mission

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (PPMM) is a trusted resource, providing accessible, compassionate essential health care in our four health centers in the Monterey Bay region. PPMM's mission is to ensure that every individual has the knowledge, opportunity, and freedom to make every child a wanted child and every family a healthy family.

The Big Idea

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (PPMM) is a trusted resource, providing accessible, compassionate, essential health care in their four health centers in the Monterey Bay region. The organization works to ensure that every individual has the knowledge, opportunity and freedom to make every child a wanted child, and every family a healthy family. During Covid-19, they are providing “low-touch” abortion services by utilizing telehealth appointments and curbside medication pickup as part of an innovative effort to provide safe abortion access. PPMM doors have remained open throughout the pandemic to serve patients, many of whom have been hit especially hard by the economic fallout. When these patients need safe, affordable, confidential, quality reproductive health services that they can trust, they know they can come to Planned Parenthood.

For a while, I didn't have health insurance, and I went to a variety of clinics. There's really no comparison with the care that you receive at Mar Monte. Having an abortion is not an easy decision, and when the day came I was pretty upset. At the other clinics, I couldn't make an appointment and I had to take an entire day off work. But at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, I felt cared for and respected. PPMM is quality health care, compassionate, a safe haven, and a trusted community resource.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.

The 2020 Campaign begins November 12.
