What We Do

A Step Ahead Chattanooga’s mission is to remove barriers to contraception through education, outreach, and access to birth control.

Every person has a right to achieve their big goals — at work, at home, in their relationship — but sometimes accessing birth control is harder than it needs to be. We make it easier for you to step ahead and stay ahead.

Who WE serve

Simply put: we believe contraception should be available to anyone who needs it. That’s why we offer FREE preventative birth control services to people living or going to school in our 18-county service area, which spans Southeast Tennessee (Bledsoe, Bradley, Franklin, Grundy, Hamilton, Marion, Meigs, McMinn, Polk, Rhea, and Sequatchie County), Northwest Georgia (Catoosa, Dade, Murray, Walker, and Whitfield County), and Northeast Alabama (DeKalb and Jackson County).

Need a ride or assistance with transportation to your appointment? We take care of that too.
