Health Quarters was established in 1971 as a 501c3 non-profit, specializing in sexual and reproductive health care that meets the needs of those who are disadvantaged by their income or age. Your financial support can help us continue our mission to care for clients who may not be able to pay for insurance or seek medical care on their own.
The contributions of our sponsors have supported Health Quarters in the following ways:
- Preventing 2,120 unintended pregnancies
- Preventing 720 abortions
- Providing low or no cost care for individuals with incomes below the federal poverty level; Ensuring adolescents receive health care that is based on their own income because they are often unable to draw on family resources or insurance while obtaining confidential care.
- Serving clients without insurance coverage and consistently delivering the full package of services needed to promote effective and consistent contraceptive use.
- Saved the state net $18,435,480
*Facts from FY 2015
For every $1 invested in publicly funded family planning services, $7 on Medicaid and other public expenditures is saved.

Since 1971, we have served hundreds of thousands of Massachusetts residents through our own licensed clinics and partnerships with community health centers and University Health systems. With the generous support of donors like you, we have been able to ensure that thousands of women, men, and teens get access to the information and services they need to make informed and responsible decisions about their bodies, sexuality, and lives.
