Alaska Baptist Family Services has operated as an outreach ministry of the Alaska Baptist Convention since its inception in 1946. Full time residential care and treatment is offered to children experiencing behavioral and emotional disorders who cannot be served in a less restrictive environment.
ABFS’ mission statement emphasizes the need to incorporate Christ-centered spiritual growth into the clients’ treatment so that the whole child is addressed in the healing and rehabilitation process. Youth are referred to Alaska Baptist Family Services in an effort to keep their care within the state and thus, closer to home and family. This allows the agency to work with the clients to build healthy family relationships so that they will be able to return to their families or to be able to go to successful foster care placements.
Thank you for consideration of making a gift to the work of Alaska Baptist Family Services. It’s the “living water” needed to really change lives.
