Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic (KBFPC) is a member-supported organization providing high-quality, low cost reproductive healthcare for women, men and families of the Southern Kenai Peninsula. We offer confidential clinical services for men and women, as well as youth education programs and community health outreach. Our mission is to provide broad access to reproductive health care services and education in a supportive and empowering environment. No one is turned away for inability to pay.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Over 30 years ago, a small community of dedicated volunteers 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 through the compassion of 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.
This year at the Clinic we’ve provided over 1,000 men and women with the latest in quality reproductive health care services in a warm and supportive environment. We’ve administered 834 STD tests, 460 clinical breast exams and 107 mammograms at no cost through our partnerships with South Peninsula Hospital and the Alaska Breast and Cervical Health Check Program.
Advocates with our Women’s Health Outreach Program connected with individuals at their homes and community events to aid families in overcoming barriers to health care access. With your support we’ve helped 480 individuals register for no-cost breast and cervical cancer screenings, apply for health insurance or Medicaid, and address other challenges to 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 230 teens participated in our peer health education program; our in-school health education services; and our workshops on cooking, music production, suicide prevention, poetry, and resiliency. This year we expect twice that number to be involved! In addition, generous donations allowed us to set up a new fund to purchases boots, phones and backpacks for homeless youth.
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 continue these efforts in the year ahead.
Thank you for your generosity.
