Alaska Center for Resource Families

A project of Northwest Resource Associates

Want to become a foster or adoptive parent?  Call 1-800-478-7307!


Our mission is to provide support and training to Alaska’s resource families (foster, adoptive, relative caretakers and guardianship families) in order to strengthen them, enhance current skills, and develop new ones. We are dedicated to working in collaborative relationships with OCS, Tribes, and others involved in the foster care and adoptive systems.

The Alaska Center for Resource Families seeks to support, encourage, and assist individuals who wish to become foster parents or to adopt through the foster care system.  Our program welcomes all prospective parents regardless of race, age, sex, marital status, religious beliefs, physical disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

What's Happening in Alaska...

Thank You Foster Parents!

Durning National Foster Care Month, we acknowledge all the children and youth who are not able to live with their birth parents or families and wish you love and protection.  We thank all the foster, adoptive, and kinship families who open their homes to children and youth.  We acknowledge the hard work and persistence of the caseworkers,  OCS staff, CASAs and GALS, courts, therapeutic staff, tribes, and attorneys who work in this difficult system.  And to the birth families on their journey to healing and reunification with your children, we wish you success and strength.

Thank You, Foster Parents!
