At Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT), we believe every child can grow up safe, happy and able to achieve their dreams. We work toward that by generating funds and committing resources across the state to prevent child abuse and neglect.
Alaska currently has one of the nation’s highest rates (per capita) of child abuse and neglect. Research shows this type of trauma has far-reaching negative effects that stretch far into adulthood, and also carries a hefty economic toll.
We believe we can prevent child abuse and neglect, and help children develop the tools to be resilient in life, by supporting and strengthening families and communities. Learn more on our website.
