Volunteers of America is a national, nonprofit, spiritually based organization providing local human service programs and creating opportunities for individual and community involvement.
In Alaska, Volunteers of America offers one-on-one help to six thousand Alaskans each year. We are locally governed and have provided compassionate and ethical service since 1981, when we first opened our doors to troubled teens at the ARCH residential facility in Eagle River. Since then, we have expanded to offer a wide array of services in many different programs offering help to young children, adolescents, families, and the elderly. Each program and service focuses on helping and healing the individual as a whole person -- body, mind, and spirit.
