Our History & Mission

It All Started in 1973

In 1973, a group of local Boulder Valley citizens founded the non-profit health center Boulder Valley Clinic to assure access to counseling and abortion services following the 1973 Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide. Over the following years, the clinic expanded its reproductive and sexual health services and in 1987, the clinic moved to its current location on Valmont Road, and our name was changed to Boulder Valley Women’s Health Center. Over the last decade, best practices in reproductive and sexual health care were transformed by the Reproductive Justice Movement which moves beyond the focus on Women’s Health and Rights and asserts that all people deserve to have the power and resources necessary to make health decisions about their gender, bodies, sexuality, and families for themselves and their communities. Our new name and logo, Boulder Valley Health Center, was adopted in our 50th year (2023) and reflects our commitment- as advocates, community leaders, clinical experts, and educators- to creating a non-profit organization that is inclusive and welcoming to everyone.
