Changing the Lives of Alaskans
Volunteers of America Alaska has helped Alaska's most vulnerable since 1981. Over the years, our services have grown to include programs that meet the needs of children, adolescents, families and seniors.
Adolescent Treatment Services:
Helping adolescents overcome substance addiction was VOA Alaska's first mission when founded in 1981. The call to help Alaskan adolescents struggling with addiction remains as necessary now as it was back then. VOA Alaska helps over 600 families each year through our residential facility (ARCH) and outpatient program (Assist).
Prevention and Intervention Services:
VOA Alaska's goal is to prevent adolescent substance abuse before it escalates. PRIME For Life provides a 20-hour alternative to suspension program for youth suspended from the Anchorage School District.
Youth Permanent Supportive Housing
VOA Alaska's Permanent Supportive Housing is part of the Anchorage Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project (YHDP), one of ten such pilot projects across the country. This project identifies the most vulnerable individuals experiencing homelessness between the ages of 18-24 years of age and places them into permanent housing with supports.
Volunteers of America Alaska believes housing is a powerful foundation for life, and we are increasing efforts to provide affordable housing throughout the state of Alaska.
The population of families with children being raised by family members who are not the childrens' parents is quickly growing in Alaska. Our Kinship Network Program offers these families a lifeline for support and services.
