Tapestry Health provides high quality, non-judgmental health services and advocacy for disenfranchised and underserved populations.
Tapestry Health is dedicated to being a leader in providing high quality, cutting-edge, non-judgmental health services and advocacy for disenfranchised and underserved populations, with an emphasis on women and youth.
Tapestry Health is a locally grown, community-based non-profit in western Massachusetts that offers affordable, high quality care. Our sites provide family planning services, reproductive health exams, STI screenings, HIV counseling and testing, needle exchange, insurance enrollment, outreach efforts, a WIC nutrition program, and much more.
Tapestry Health has delivered family planning and reproductive health services throughout western Massachusetts for almost four decades. By combining compassionate health care with the most recent advances in medical practice, we ensure that people can get the care that they deserve, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or income.
Founded as the Family Planning Council of Western Massachusetts in 1973, Tapestry Health remains the only non-profit organization in the region to offer family planning and reproductive health care to often marginalized individuals, such as young people, women living in poverty, recent immigrants, uninsured and underinsured persons, injection drug users, the homeless, and men and women with HIV/AIDS, despite their ability to pay.
Today, Tapestry Health continues to expand in the number of people that we serve and range of services that we provide. From introducing HIV/AIDS services to western Massachusetts in 1990, to operating the only needle exchanges in Massachusetts west of Cambridge, to giving free nutritional food to families in Springfield, to being the sole family planning agency to offer state insurance enrollment, we remain committed to working on the cutting-edge of public health through innovative and effective intervention programs.
We have sites in Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin, and Berkshire Counties, comprising a diverse region of rural farmlands, suburban neighborhoods, and urban centers. We will strive to meet each and every need until all people have access to family planning and reproductive health services, we halt the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and all children are wanted and able to grow and thrive in stable, healthy families.
