Mazzoni Center is the only health care provider in the Philadelphia region specifically targeting the unique health care needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. It was founded in 1979 as an all-volunteer clinic to serve the needs of sexual minorities in Philadelphia. When the first cases of HIV/AIDS began to appear in the early 1980s, the organization quickly responded, becoming the oldest AIDS service organization in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the fourth-oldest in the nation. As it grew and evolved to meet the needs of our constituents, Mazzoni Center combined HIV/AIDS-related services with a broad continuum of health care and supportive services, which include: outreach, prevention, education, direct medical and care services, psychosocial services, legal services, and support groups. With over 35,000 individuals benefiting annually from our services, we have proven ourselves to be a leader among community-based organizations in the greater Philadelphia area, and have developed a reputation for excellence and innovation in service delivery to our constituents.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading sexual and reproductive health care provider, educator, and advocate, serving millions of women, men, teens, and families in the United States and abroad. For more than 90 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to sex and sexuality, based on respect for each individual’s right to make informed, independent decisions about sex, health, and family planning.
The Reproductive Health Access Project (RHAP) is a national organization that works directly with primary care providers, helping them integrate abortion, contraception, and miscarriage management into their practices so that everyone can receive this essential health care from their own primary care clinicians—such as family physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
