Celebrating 35 years of changed lives

Everyone has the right to live in the community of their choice.

That’s why we’re here. Our services help with developing independence, learning new skills and living in the community of one’s choice.

We serve individuals with developmental disabilities, adults with physical disabilities, elders, very young children who are developmentally delayed or at risk, and children with behavioral health needs.

We are a nonprofit human service organization, and have served southern southeast Alaska for over 30 years.

For families of children aged birth to three years with developmental delays or who are “at risk” of developing delays.

Comprehensive mental health services for children and their families in the home and community.

For individuals with developmental disabilities and seniors who require assistance to remain in their community of choice and with achieving their life goals.

2021 Annual Sock Drive

Thank you to all who donated and worked hard this holiday season to make our Holiday Sock Drive a success!

With your support we have continued to make a difference in the lives of children, seniors, and adults with disabilities. In total we were able to serve 200 individuals throughout our programs in Ketchikan and on Prince of Wales Island. The donations received, truly brightened the days of those in our community. From cash contributions to donated clothing, hand-knitted hats and homemade cookies, each of these items brought joy to those in need. We are grateful for your partnership.
