Increasing Access to Birth Control

A Step Ahead Foundation offers women in Memphis and Shelby County free long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) to prevent unplanned pregnancies.

A Step Ahead Foundation empowers women to reach their life goals by eliminating barriers to voluntary, long-acting, reversible birth control through educational programming, services, and funding.

The organization strives to improve educational, economic, and health outcomes for women by providing access to the most effective reversible methods of birth control. Preventing unplanned pregnancy encourages educational and career opportunities, reduces economic strain, and leads to lower infant mortality and positive future pregnancy outcomes.
