About Us

Our Three-Pronged Approach

Family Tree Clinic is committed to sexual and reproductive health care access. We work toward this goal every day through our clinic services, community education program and services for the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing community.

We Put you First

We work hard to keep our services affordable, accessible and confidential. Staff are committed to involving you in the decision-making process, making sure you get all your questions answered and your needs met. We put you first.

We are Committed to Education

We are dedicated to education as a tool for prevention. Family Tree Clinic offers comprehensive outreach education services around the metro and statewide. Our community education department focuses on teaching comprehensive sexuality education classes in schools, community settings, colleges, and to groups in correctional facilities. We also have a health education department that serves the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing community, either in a classroom setting or one-on-one.

We Fight for Family Planning

We are leaders in the reproductive and sexual health care field. We champion sexuality education and advocate for reproductive and sexual rights at the legislative level, including a woman’s right to choose. We are committed to strong partnerships in the community and determined to thrive in our social and political environment. We offer the best practices at prices within your reach.

A History of Service

Family Tree Clinic was founded by Macalester College students and teachers, health professionals and community leaders in 1971. Their goal was to serve the thousands of teens and adults in the area neglected by the traditional health care system. From the beginning our founders based their philosophy of care on the needs of the community, including maintaining a volunteer Board of Directors. Many of those who serve on our board are patients, community members and health care professionals. Our Board of Directors and founders brought a unique perspective to the field of family planning health care – they put an emphasis on education and outreach.

Today, in addition to our clinical services, Family Tree Clinic is proud to offer community education programs, education services for the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing, rewarding volunteer opportunities, and a strong focus on accessibility. We work to keep our services accessible, confidential and affordable and to stay involved in the community. Family Tree Clinic is now the largest provider of reproductive health care in Ramsey County. To this day addressing the needs of the community is our biggest inspiration and goal.
