The Alaska Center for Resource Families seeks to provide support, information and training to all of Alaska’s resource families (foster, adoptive, relative caretakers and guardianship families). We are dedicated to working in partnership with OCS, Tribes, and others involved in foster care and adoption. Our program welcomes all prospective parents regardless of race, age, sex, marital status, religious beliefs, physical disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
