Nationwide, nearly 700,000 children are victims of abuse & neglect every year. Whether the abuse is emotional, neglect, physical or sexual, the scars can last a lifetime without mental health assistance.

In Alaska, 1 in 10 children are identified as potential victims of abuse and neglect.  At Denali Family Services, our mission is to support these children and their families through individualized, community-based mental health services.

Why DFS?

If you want to make a difference in the world, you can do that by partnering with us to change a child’s life.

The future of our country depends on the mental health and strength of our young people. Whenever children are emotionally and mentally healthy, communities are stronger.

At that time, the agency operated as an outpatient psychological and psychiatric provider with a child protection visitation program. By 1996, the agency provided wrap-around services for the “severely emotionally disturbed” (SED).
