How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
In 1983, a small group of community members saw a need for accurate, affordable reproductive health education in Homer, and they joined together to make it happen by launching KBFPC. Their legacy continues today supported by an ever-growing community of loyal KBFPC supporters. Over the past year, generosity through individual donations have helped us serve every person who came through our doors seeking confidential clinical services, access to cancer screenings, or healthy activities and education for youth – regardless of ability to pay.
Our Clinic provides the latest in quality reproductive health care services in a warm and supportive environment. We offer access to preventive reproductive health care, including: Well Woman Visits, contraception consultations & supplies, preconception and infertility consultations, STD testing and treatment, clinical breast exams & mammogram referrals, pregnancy options counselling and vasectomies. We also provide on-site rapid HIV + HCV testing at The Exchange, Homer's syringe access program. While we bill Medicaid and private insurance, most of our service fees are on a low-cost sliding fee scale, and services are provided regardless of an individual's ability to pay.
Advocates with our Community Health Outreach Program connect with individuals at their homes and community events to aid families in overcoming barriers to health care access. With your support we’ve help individuals register for no-cost breast and cervical cancer screenings, apply for health insurance or Medicaid, and address other challenges that hinder keeping healthcare appointments such as lack of transportation and childcare.
Through the R.E.C. Room (youth Resource & Enrichment Co-op), we’ve provided teens with a safe space to socialize after school and access healthy alternative activities and education programs at no cost. During the last academic year 900+ teens participated in our KPBSD Board approved, in-school Peer-taught health education services; and our workshops on cooking, music production, suicide prevention, poetry, and resiliency. Since 2017 the "Rainbow Army", a youth lead LGBTQ + Ally support group, calls the REC Room home.
None of this would have been possible without commitment and generosity from individual community members like yourself. We need your kindness now to help us sustain these efforts in the year ahead.
Thank you for your generosity.
