Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic is a member-supported organization that provides broad access to reproductive health care services and education in a supportive and empowering environment.
The REC Room facilitates healthy relationships, health education, and healthy choices for youth in and around Homer.
We believe that everyone deserves to feel safe and healthy in their body and relationships.
Sharing unbiased and evidence-based information and education empowers individuals to make informed decisions in alignment with their values and experiences.
We acknowledge the relationship between reproductive and sexual health and the Reproductive Justice movement. We support the SisterSong definition of Reproductive Justice as “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”
Our Core Values
Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic was formed in 1983 by an inspired group of volunteers who saw a need for low-cost, informative reproductive healthcare in Homer. From our early days of providing minimal women’s health screenings at our monthly volunteer-run clinic, we have developed into a multi-program agency with comprehensive services available 5 days a week to adults and teens of all genders, backgrounds, and income levels.
Along with expanded Clinic services, our educational outreach evolved into two programs: the REC Room (a youth Resource & Enrichment Co-Op) and the Homer Peer Educators. The REC Room provides a safe afterschool space for teens to foster healthy relationships and make healthy choices. Our Peer Education program is a unique model of teens teaching teens, with local youth trained to visit middle and high schools around the southern Kenai Peninsula to educate students about safe sex and healthy relationships.
