What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

KBFPC subscribes to the following beliefs~
All health care should reflect respect for the dignity, worth, confidentiality, autonomy, and individuality of each human being;
• preventative health is the first priority
• individuals have an active part in their health care; and
• HEALTH is to be considered a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease. (World Health Organization).

To this end our work emphasizes these core values:
· Empowering (respectful)
· Accessible & Inclusive (compassionate)
· Evidence based (progressive, professional)

We empower individuals to choose and succeed on their own path to life-long well-being.
Our programs are developed to:
- allow individuals to decide when and if they start a family (reduce teen and unintended pregnancy)
- remove barriers to preventive health care
- increase knowledge about forming healthy relationships (reduce sexual and partner violence)

Established in 1983 with a volunteer staff Kachemak Family Planning Clinic has gradually grown to be a trusted community organization.
With a staff of 18, including 6 high school students, we have high staff longevity resulting in a dedicated, highly, effective and efficient skilled team.
KBFPC has a proven track record in:
Clinical Services: serving 1,000+ unduplicated individuals each year, and providing preventative reproductive wellness education to many more across the region.
Community Outreach and Barrier Relief: our service area is remote-rural with some locations only accessible by boat or plane, we have systems in place to provide transportation assistance and scheduling navigation for individuals who would otherwise not have access to healthcare.
Youth Programs: Well established in the Kenai Peninsula Borough school district, we are the trusted resource for all things adolescence.
Sustainability: KBFPC occupies two buildings on adjacent City lots. The Clinical Services building is owned outright and the Youth Services/Outreach/Administration building is 10 years in to a 30 year mortgage with affordable payments. We anticipate early pay off.
Our revenue stream is somewhat diverse, including substantial earned income. Having a high percentage of unrestricted funds allows us to be nimble and responsive to mission-based program opportunities and unanticipated challenges.
Governance: KBFPC Board participates in regular educational opportunities from the Foraker Group - an organization that builds nonprofit capacity in Alaska. The Board has a culture of 100% participation and is fully engaged in governance work.

KBFPC has developed a strong set of programs that are inter-linked and mission-rich. We have built a solid infrastructure and respected community presence.

Moving forward we will maintain and update the foundation we have built, continually refining and improving all aspects of operation to reflect best practices.
Upcoming plans include:
- Peer Education Coordinator will become a Sources of Strength trainer, and will then provide this training to educators in the KPB School District.
- Clinical Services will expand to include some diagnostic tests such as colposcopy, serving to further reduce barriers for clients needing this follow up to screening tests
