Six Rivers Planned Parenthood (formerly the Planned Parenthood Association of Humboldt County) was incorporated in May, 1975 and was located at a building on E Street in Henderson Center.


From May 1976, Six Rivers PP offered a family planning clinic as well as daily pregnancy testing and counseling. Services also included treatment of sexually transmitted disease as well as urinary tract infections. In September 1977 they started their Education Department with federal family planning funding. They hired an Information & Education Director and two health educators who taught a 5 to 15 day family life sex education course in local high schools. They also began training high school teachers to take over the teaching so we could introduce programs in the junior high schools. From 1979-1982, a sexuality education program was developed for the disabled. The 1980s saw the development of young adult and parent education programs. August 1978 saw the beginning of Six Rivers PP's vasectomy program which offers education and counseling by trained, male volunteers at our facility. The operation itself was performed by local physicians in their offices.[1]
