Planned Parenthood will resume operations in Pullman at a temporary health center after an arson attack seriously damaged the nonprofit organization’s office in early September.
The organization will open a temporary center Oct. 12 at 745 N. Grand Ave. #108 in Pullman to provide annual exams, birth control, testing for sexually transmitted infections and other services, Planned Parenthood said in a news release.
Planned Parenthood’s Pullman office was damaged in the early hours of Sept. 4 after an arsonist threw a flammable object through the window. The fire caused serious structural damage and is still under investigation by a federal terrorism task force and the Pullman Police Department. No suspects have been identified.
Reconstruction of the permanent health center will take about four months and is expected to cost Planned Parenthood about $250,000, the release said.
