WeARE-The Clinic (opened October 9, 2017) was founded to help address the lack of reproductive healthcare services for youth and young adults in the Brainerd Lakes Area.  The Clinic offers confidential reproductive healthcare services, education and community outreach services.  WeARE is community-based and committed to serving all youth and young adults in the area.  While The Clinic’s primary audience is underserved youth, no person will be denied needed services based on age, race, gender, sexual orientation, nor the ability to pay.
