How Our Values Inform Our Work

We pursue and promote equal access to reproductive healthcare with a culturally sensitive approach for all Kentuckians.
We seek to provide spaces for discourse for consumers, citizens, legislators, social service and healthcare consumers, and social service and healthcare providers.
Through Kentucky Support Network ("The Network"), we offer information and practical support such as transportation, language access, and information to people seeking abortion services in Kentucky.
KHJN believes in YOU calling the shots on your healthcare. We share information with individuals on how to make informed decisions as well as train professionals on how to keep you at the center of the work.
We recognize that it's hard to be a woman. It's hard to be trans* in Kentucky. We know that change won't happen overnight. Together, if we stay in this work for the long-haul, we will realize a new Kentucky.
