Discover VOA Alaska

Volunteers of America is the charity that always steps forward to help the most vulnerable. For almost 125 years, we have taken on the most difficult tasks to help the most under-served.

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.

Today, VOA Alaska provides a range of services to support the hope, health, and healing of every Alaskan. Our behavioral health professionals educate and support youth struggling with substance misuse and mental health conditions, while also providing a safe space for healing. Our permanent supportive housing team uses an evidence based, housing-first approach to navigate transitional youth to recovery by securing housing and building life skills. Our public health team is on the front line of prevention, working to strengthen and promote healthy communities. Our Kinship Family Program, the most comprehensive program of its kind in Alaska, serves families taking care of relative children.

The rate of youth successfully completing our treatment programs is twice that of the statewide average.
