A Step Ahead Foundation of Middle Tennessee

A Step Ahead Foundation of Middle Tennessee hopes to improve educational, economic, and health outcomes for women and their children in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Jenny Matthews, Executive Director of A Step Ahead Foundation of Middle Tennessee, who highlights the nonprofit organization’s mission and efforts to prevent unplanned pregnancies by providing education about and access to free long-acting reversible contraception (LARC).

During the interview, Jenny shares some of their history and growth over the last seven years, how they have served more than 2,500 clients with their free healthcare services over that time period, how they have expanded to now serve 29 counties, how they partner with organizations in the community that work with women who may want to know about their free resources, and how their call center helps women navigate the process. She discusses the benefits of being able to plan a family, and how educational, economic, and health outcomes are improved for families. Jenny also talks about how the community can support their efforts and get involved.

Our mission is to prevent unplanned pregnancies by providing education about and access to free long-acting reversible contraception (LARC).  When people can plan their families, we know educational, economic, and health outcomes are improved for families. We remove barriers to LARC and have a call center that helps women navigate the process. We cover a well woman exam, STI testing, the cost of the device, removal at any time. The client never receives a bill. The only requirement to participate in our program is that the client be a resident or student in one of the 29 counties we serve.
