This Year's Project: Reproductive and Sexual Health

About Our Organization

Family Health Services is a non-profit healthcare organization that serves people in Beatrice, Tecumseh, and all of Southeast Nebraska.  Your donation helps patients get reproductive healthcare on an income-based sliding fee basis. More than half of the 1,500 patients that Family Health Services cares for every year are uninsured or underinsured which qualifies them for free or reduced-price services. The clinic also accepts most private insurance, Medicaid, and Every Woman Matters. Our caring and comprehensive providers offer preventative health exams, cervical cancer screening (PAP test), breast cancer screening, sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, all contraceptive methods (including emergency contraception), pregnancy testing, and colposcopy procedures. We believe all of our neighbors should have access to reproductive and sexual healthcare regardless of ability to pay.  

Another critical part of our programming is our outreach and sexual health education reaching 3,000 individuals every year.  We partner with lots of other organizations to provide informative reproductive and sexual health programs in a professional and non-judgmental way. Family planning promotes the well-being of families and responsible behavior, prevents unintended pregnancies through education and contraceptive services, and allows for planning and timing of pregnancies.

Current Project: Reproductive and Sexual Health

Your donation of $50 would provide a year's worth of birth control for a reproductive-aged woman or a full range of sexually transmitted infection testing for a woman or man.

Past Projects

  • Cardiochek machine and operational support

    Project Details

    FHSI is raising money this year to purchase a Cardiocheck machine for our satellite clinics that serve Beatrice. This machine tests cholesterol and blood glucose with a simple finger stick blood sample.  Screening blood pressure, cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels are important aspects of a thorough preventative health exam.  Early detection of hypertension (high blood pressure), hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), and diabetes (high blood sugar) is important for preventing adverse outcomes such heart disease, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and many other complications of these conditions. Heart disease alone is the number one cause of death in the U.S.  At FHSI we don't just focus on family planning services, but want to provide an important screening service for our clients to encourage good health and prevent disease. 

    We would use any additional money raised this year for operational support of our outreach program.  We desire to incease our outreach efforts to reach new clientele in Gage county. We serve adolescents and adults up to age 64, but reaching the different age groups regarding our services can be a challenge. We have found marketing methods to have changed significantly with the advent of social media. Youth don't read a newspaper, listen to the radio or watch TV like older clientele.  We are developing more social media marketing to reach the adolescents and young adults in the area. 

    Please consider helping our organization with our fundraising projects for the year.  Thank you for supporting our mission to "assist residents of Southeast Nebraska in obtaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families"!
