When the first Volunteers of America (VOA) was founded in 1896, the concept of "volunteering" meant serving others as a vocation. While our understanding of the term has evolved, our dedication to serving others has not.
As an Alaskan direct-service non-profit organization, VOA Alaska has focused on serving Alaska’s most vulnerable since 1981. Today, our behavioral health professionals educate and support youth struggling with substance misuse and mental health conditions, while also providing a safe space for healing. Additionally, our public health team is on the front line of prevention, working to strengthen and promote healthy communities.
