Claudia Haines named KBFPC CEO

Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic recently appointed Claudia Haines as Chief Executive Officer, according to a press release on Tuesday. Haines assumes her responsibilities as CEO immediately.

Haines has been a member of the Homer community for more than 20 years and previously served as the Youth Services Librarian at the Homer Public Library.

“I believe in the power of relationships,” said Haines in the release. “I thrive in a collaborative, creative environment, and look forward to working with the KBFPC team and our neighbors in the Southern Kenai Peninsula region to re-envision how we support the health and well-being of youth and adults in our communities.”

Haines earned her Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of Washington and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies from The Evergreen State College. According to the KBFPC release, she is a nationally recognized author and speaker on youth and family support topics and library innovation.

“Claudia is an innovative, collaborative, and thoughtful leader,” KBFPC Board President Amy Woodruff said in the release. “While conducting a nationwide search for our next CEO, we were delighted to discover the most qualified candidate was already a well-respected member of our own community.”

Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic serves Southern Kenai Peninsula residents by providing high-quality, accessible reproductive and preventive health care at a low cost. The clinic also operates the REC Room, a resource and enrichment coop for youth to socialize and participate in activities.
