About Montana Family Planning

Montana Family Planning (MFP), a federal Title X program administered by the private nonprofit organization, Bridgercare, champions access to culturally sensitive, quality, sexual and reproductive health education, and services for every individual. The mission is achieved in two primary ways: through advocacy to break down systemic policy barriers that decrease health equity and impede access to services; and by improving quality services through programming. MFP is proud to support systems of care throughout Montana in delivering patient-centered reproductive healthcare to all those who seek services. Our programming is focused on removing cost barriers, specifically for the uninsured, and supporting family planning health centers through quality training, analysis, and collaboration.
