VOA stands ready to continue supporting youth and families in Alaska.

COVID-19 FAQ

Thanks to some intense mobilization and collaboration across the organization, as of March 21st, all outpatient, early intervention, and prevention services have been migrated to telehealth delivery via Zoom or phone. We stand ready to continue serving the community with no disruption to services, nor any reduction in our availability to support youth and families during this time. 

Our team at VOA is called to support the most vulnerable youth in our community. In the face of community crisis, we remain committed to stay connected and provide support to all who need us. Addressing feelings of growing anxiety and isolation are essential to ensuring vulnerable lives are protected. 


Are you a current VOA youth or family who needs assistance? Contact us at (907) 279-9640 to talk with our team today.

New to VOA and need to access our services and supports? Contact us at (907) 279-9640 to get set-up with an assessment.

We are currently offering online Family Support Groups for members of the public. If you find yourself seeking an opportunity to connect, engage, and receive support, join us on Zoom. Information and links for scheduled groups can be found on our Facebook page.
