Needs & Wishes

Each day we are faced with the needs & wishes of the youth in our care. While we strive to provide all we can, we cannot do everything we want. We truly need your help to help us with this great journey we are on to make our community better and to help the lives of these deserving youth.

Please review our various program's Needs & Wishes below. Even one item can make a big difference and allow us to do more for them. Thank you!

While Anchorage Children's Home does obtain federal and state funding through grants and contracts to serve at-risk and abused, neglected and abandoned children; these funding sources frequently require private matching funds and do not provide enough support to pay for the total cost of essential services. The generous financial support by our community partners and private individuals is critical to our ability to continue to be an Anchor for today's children and strengthen tomorrow's families. We need your help through financial support to the Anchorage Children’s Home Foundation which provides the private funds necessary to effectively run the programs of Anchorage Children’s Home.
