Mission: California Family Health Council (CFHC) champions and promotes quality sexual + reproductive health care for all.
CFHC achieves its mission through an umbrella of services including clinic support initiatives, advanced clinical research, provider training, patient education, advocacy and consumer awareness. As the administrator of California’s leading Title X (ten) federal family planning program – the nation’s largest Title X system - CFHC funds family planning and reproductive health services for low-income and uninsured clients through nearly 70 health care organizations collectively operating nearly 340 health centers serving nearly one million women, men and teens annually in 38 of California’s 58 counties. CFHC’s Title X provider network includes a broad spectrum of providers including federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), city and county health departments, stand alone family planning health centers, school-based clinics and community or free clinics.
CFHC is also committed to ensuring that access to quality sexual and reproductive health care is protected and expanded throughout health care reform implementation through health reform readiness technical assistance and training for providers, public policy initiatives and developing strategic partnerships.
As a statewide organization, we have office locations in both Northern and Southern California. Our dedicated staff of 70 employees has a wide range of expertise in the field of sexual and reproductive health – as researchers, trainers, policy experts, nurse practitioners, and more. Our entire team is committed to advancing our mission to champion and promote quality sexual and reproductive health care for all. Interested in joining us? Visit our career center.
CFHC was originally incorporated in 1968. CFHC as it is known today was formed in 1997 when it merged with the Los Angeles Regional Family Planning Council (LARFPC). Prior to the merger, LARFPC and CFHC had more than 30 years combined experience supporting the delivery of family planning services throughout California. In 1998, CFHC absorbed Education Programs Associates, a women’s health care training and resource agency.
