A Brief History of Every Body Texas

We were founded in 1977 as the not-for-profit organization known as the Texas Family Planning Association, and later called Women’s Health and Family Planning Association of Texas. In 2020, we rebranded as “Every Body Texas” to reflect a transformation we’ve been driving for years.

For our first 34 years (or so), we were one voice in a chorus of organizations demanding access to high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare. We believed then, as we do now, that all people need access to this care.

Then things changed.

Starting in 2011, the Texas Legislature made sweeping changes to how funding for “family planning” services was allocated—i.e., they slashed funding. Eighty-two clinics closed. Twenty-three organizations that provided key services to low-income people—such as birth control, STI testing and treatment, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and other services—lost critical funding.

The effect was instant and devastating. So our community responded.

After a lengthy application process, Every Body Texas was named the Title X Family Planning Administrator for Texas. We became the organization responsible for distributing these important federal funds—the only federal funds dedicated to family planning care—to clinics across the state.

Our goal was then, as it is now, to ensure that this money is deployed for the greatest possible impact. But Every Body Texas is much more than a funding organization.

We are on the ground—every day—serving as a source of expertise. We form partnerships in healthcare, community leadership, and others. We answer questions. We offer professional consulting and technical training to clinical providers, administrators, and other staff.

We deliver full-throated, clear-voiced advocacy for access to critical healthcare services. Learn more about what we do.

The future of access to sexual and reproductive healthcare is unclear. But whichever way the political winds blow, Every Body Texas will strive—every day—to build a world where anybody who needs care can get it, regardless of their identity or income.

That is why we exist.

Our Vision for the Future

Every day, we work to build a world in which:

Every person in Texas can access high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare and education.

Every person in Texas understands their rights and options for controlling if, when, and how to have a child—and does so on their own terms and on a timeline that is best for them.

Every provider delivers high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare regardless of their client’s income or identity.

Lawmakers are more vocal advocates for the importance of unbiased, affordable sexual and reproductive healthcare and increase funding for relevant programs and services.

Philanthropic organizations fund more programs that expand access to high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare.

What is “Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare,” Anyway?

We use a definition that combines information from the United Nations Population Fund and the World Health Organization.

“Organized efforts to maintain or restore complete physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system—including the ability to have a satisfying and safe sex life, to reproduce, and to decide if, when, and how often to do so.”
