About Us

Teen And Young Adult Health Connection (TAYA) is a non profit reproductive healthcare organization whose mission is to provide teens and young adults with affordable, timely and culturally competent direct clinical care and educational outreach services. Our goal is to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancies, as well as sexually transmitted infections and HIV.

Program Areas

Direct Clinical Care

Quality Care: TAYA serves as a reproductive medical home for patients ages 12-35 by providing a wide range of evidence based clinical services.

Affordable: TAYA works with every patient, regardless of income level or insurance status, to ensure they have access to reproductive healthcare.

Comfortable: TAYA provides a warm environment, where patients feel each staff member respects their individuality and is committed to their wellbeing and overall health outcomes.

Accessible: Appointments are regularly available (including walk-ins) for all services; clinics are easily accessible by car, bus or metro; and all methods of contraception are available for purchase on site.

Integrated Care: Medical staff, case managers and social workers collaborate to ensure continuity of care for each patient, including referrals and access to community resources.

Community Based Education and Outreach

Outreach: TAYA identifies members of the community at greatest risk and actively recruits them through community activities, educational presentations and partnerships with related organizations.

Education: TAYA provides in-clinic and community based educational interventions designed to increase knowledge, build skills and reduce risk to promote positive and responsible reproductive health behaviors.
