Tapestry is rooted in the principles of compassionate, confidential, non-judgmental care for all. Founded in 1973 as the Family Planning Council of Western Massachusetts, the agency has grown over the last four decades to be a leading expert on critical public health issues impacting the region. Today, these services include sexual and reproductive health care, syringe access and disposal, overdose prevention and education, overdose reversal medication access and training, and providing new mothers and their children with nutritional education and support, including 24 hour a day breastfeeding help.
Tapestry was founded to ensure women and teens have access to high-quality, confidential sexual and reproductive health care, regardless of income, race, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We remain focused on this mission while opening our doors to provide the broader community with much needed and often controversial care like HIV testing, birth control, syringe access, and STD testing and treatment. Our committed staff is highly skilled and well trained to provide a culturally competent, compassionate health care experience for all in our communities who need it.
eHealth Initiative looks forward to working with the Tapestry team on supporting the growth of community-based healthcare in the future!
