A Step Ahead Chattanooga provides education, information, and access to birth control to any woman living in our tri-state, eighteen county service area who wants it, for free!

With donations from individuals, companies, and foundations, we make sure that clinical services cost women nothing out-of-pocket. If needed, transportation is covered too. We also provide outreach and education. We believe that all women — not only women of means—should have every chance to reach their education, career, and relationship goals.

Client Testimonials

  • "I love this!! The call was quick and easy and I was connected to the clinic immediately to make an appointment. The clinic I choose was very nice and all the staff was friendly and helpful! I have recommended this to my friends."

  • "This experience was so wonderful and put me at ease! I felt supported from the initial call, and while I didn't need condoms or a ride to the appointment, it meant so much because there was definitely a point in time where I would have needed those badly. Everyone was so sweet, it made me want to volunteer with this program one day."

  • "A Step Ahead Chattanooga is doing the good work of connecting people with clinics to get them the birth control they want. I’m so grateful for the organization. My doc was amazing and very efficient, which helped (my anxiety)."

  • "I used A Step Ahead Chattanooga for my long term birth control. There was no way I could afford it on my insurance alone. From the beginning of the process to the end everyone I interacted with was warm, kind, and helpful. It was a very good experience."
