About Us

Big picture thinking. Real world results.

AccessMatters (formerly Family Planning Council) innovates, empowers, and works to equalize access to sexual and reproductive health care for teens and adults in need. Through our unique abilities to engage and empower even the hardest-to-reach populations, we are closing the gap between those with access to sexual and reproductive health and those without…for over 40 years we’ve been trailblazers.

Transforming conversations about why access matters.

As fearless advocates for sexual and reproductive health, we galvanize stakeholders and policymakers regionally and nationally to de-stigmatize sexual and reproductive health. We are committed to raising the flag of sexual and reproductive health in each community where we work, to make it a public health priority, and a core component of primary care.

Not just experts. Experienced.

For more than 40 years, our organization has been working to successfully eliminate economic, social, cultural, and geographic barriers to care for more than 200,000 people annually in southeastern Pennsylvania and beyond.

Seeing the big picture.

Our relationships with a vast spectrum of health care providers and strategic partners–from leading academic institutions to community organizations–gives us the ability to identify opportunities and solutions where others do not. Not only does this unique and powerful perspective enhance all our partner support services, but it also guides our advocacy and community engagement.
