Family Planning – Title X

Neighborhood Health Center, 10th Street Clinic is now a Title X-funded family planning service site serving Wayne and surrounding counties.  These important services have not been available in Wayne County since 2015 so we are pleased to fill this gap in our community.

We provide family planning services that include:

  • contraceptive services including various forms of birth control and condoms
  • pregnancy testing and counseling
  • pelvic exams including PAP smears
  • basic infertility services
  • preconception health services
  • sexually transmitted infection (STI/STD) testing and other services

Neighborhood Health Center prioritizes the needs of low-income families and uninsured individuals who might not otherwise have access to family planning services.  Patients do not have to be an established patient in our clinic to qualify for services.  Patients do not have to reside in Wayne County to receive services.

While we always encourage teenagers to talk openly with their parents and/or guardians about their sexual activities and healthcare choices, we are able to provide care that is confidential for minor patients. Costs are determined by the teenager’s income unless a parent or guardian is present.

Where can I find additional resources?

Title X is a federal grant administered at the state level.  In Indiana, Indiana Family Health Council administers the grant.  Their mission is to promote and facilitate family planning and reproductive health services for those in need.

Indiana Family Health Council (IFHC) is a private, not-for-profit organization that funds 31 reproductive health clinics across the state to make healthcare and education available and accessible to all women, men and teens in Indiana, no matter insurance coverage or income level. Of these clinics, 30 are open to the public.

Focusing on our goal of making healthcare education and resources available to all, in 2019, Indiana Family Council sponsored clinics have done the following:

  • provided services to 20,970 patients across 83 of the 92 Indiana counties
  • conducted 9,364 HIV tests
  • tested 77.5 percent of women under the age of 25 for chlamydia
  • distributed 550,000 million condoms across the state of Indiana
  • provided education and counseling resulting in 83.6 percent of women choosing to adopt a moderately or most effective form of contraception
  • Performed 16,199 chlamydia/gonorrhea tests

IFHC’s website is full of information that will be helpful for patients and their families.
