Alaska Center for Resource Families

A project of Northwest Resource Associates


At the Alaska Center for Resource Families, our mission is to provide support and training to all of Alaska’s resource families (foster, adoptive, relative caretakers and guardianship families) in order to strengthen them and enhance current skills, while developing 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.
