Overview

Mission Statement

Tapestry Health is dedicated to being a leader in providing high quality, cutting-edge, non-judgmental health services and advocacy for disenfranchised and underserved populations, with an emphasis on women and youth.

Background Statement

Tapestry Health has delivered family planning and reproductive health services throughout western Massachusetts for almost four decades. By combining compassionate health care with the most recent advances in medical practice, we ensure that people can get the care that they deserve, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or income.

Founded as the Family Planning Council of Massachusetts in 1973, Tapestry Health remains the only non-profit organization in the region to offer family planning and reproductive health care to often marginalized individuals, such as young people, women living in poverty, recent immigrants, uninsured and underinsured persons,injection drug users,the homeless, and men and women with HIV/AIDS, despite their ability to pay.

Today, Tapestry Health continues to expand in the number of people that we serve and range of services that we provide. From introducing HIV/AIDS services to western Massachusetts in 1990, to operating the only needle exchange in Massachusetts west of Cambridge,to giving free nutritional food to families in Springfield, to being the sole family planning agency to offer state insurance enrollment, we remain committed to working on the cutting-edge of public health through innovative and effective intervention programs. 

We have sites in Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin, and Berkshire Counties, comprising a diverse region of rural farmlands, suburban neighborhoods, and urban centers. We will strive to meet each and every need until all people have access to family planning and reproductive health services, we halt the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and all children are wanted and able to grow and thrive in stable, healthy families.

Tapestry Health employs dedicated, caring, and skilled professionals who are qualified to meet the various needs of our community. Our team includes clinicians, counselors, case managers,outreach workers,community health educators, nutritionists, and administrative operations staff. Whether through a career, internship or donation, you can join us in making a difference!


Impact Statement

In the last year (as of June 30, 2012) Tapestry Health has provided 180 Gardasil shots (HPV vaccine), 4300 packs of birth control pills, 150 IUDs, 1750 doses of Plan B, 775 Depo Provera shots, 1000 Nuva rings, and 4700 HIV tests, serving a total of 10,017 people. We hope to reach more people each year.

Needs Statement

We need to raise $175,000 in private dollars each fiscal year in order to continue to provide services at the rate that we do currently.

CEO Statement

Leslie Tarr Laurie founded Tapestry Health (formerly the Family Planning Council of Western Massachusetts) in 1973 and remains the President and Chief Executive Officer today.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
