Dear Mayor Allen:
The Atlanta Planned Parenthood Association was organized in
November 1965 with the main objective to make family planning
education and services available to the 50,000 medically indigent women in the Atlanta area. Prior to that time convenient evening and neighborhood family planning services were
almost nonexistent in Atlanta.
Only through the financial support and encouragement of EOA
was it possible to initiate our program of neighborhood services as early as January 1966 and to expand our services so
that at the present time we have seven family planning clinics
and nine family planning sessions per weekQ Between January
1966 to May 1968 we helped 3,349 new patients obtain family
planning services. This means that more than 3,000 families
have been helped to achieve satisfactory family living.
The executives and personnel of EOA have been most cooperative
in financial matters as well as with helpful advice and suggestions. In our dail y contact with residents of EOA neighborhoods we have found all of the staff at the various EOA
centers deeply concerned about the residents in their area
and unfailingly willing to cooperate in an attempt to be of
service and help,

action agency for Atlanta and Fulton County.
