Family Planning

What is Family Planning?

Family Planning is a public, non–profit organization that provides reproductive health care, contraceptive methods and counseling services to men and women in Laramie County and surrounding areas.

The Cheyenne–Laramie County Health Department and a group of local volunteer physicians established Family Planning in 1967.

*In response to the continued spread of COVID-19, and due to the increase in cases it is necessary to begin social distancing. March 24, 2020. Effective immediately, Family Planning Clinic will implement the following:

  • These services will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7AM to 6PM:
