Island Reproductive Health Initiative

The Island Reproductive Health Initiative is very grateful to the Orcas High School Class of 2013 for selecting our project as one of the local nonprofit services to receive funding from the Orcas Island Community Foundation Youth Grant awards.

The $500 grant to the IRHI Fund will enable three or four young adult or teen patients to visit any one of our local medical clinics and receive the reproductive and sexual health care they need, which they otherwise could not afford. We thank OICF and the class of 2013 for this support, especially since many more patients seek our help during the summer.
