Waitlists and Program Updates

Every month, VOA Alaska sends out a referral partner newsletter containing the information below. If you would like to be added to that email list, please send a message to djtyson@voaak.org.

VOA Alaska accepts outside agency assessments. Our Rapid Response team specializes in crisis intervention for youth and young adults ages 12-24. The team, which includes mental health clinicians and peer support specialists, additionally provides free consultations to parents, caregivers, and youth-serving professionals.

If a program has a waitlist, no problem! We provide interim services, including connection with a clinician, peer support specialists, and group counseling.
