Board of Directors

The Board of Directors at Denali Family Services is a compassionate group of professionals and community members with a commitment to the health and safety of Alaska’s children and families. Some have personal or professional experience with the services we provide; others do not. But all have a heart-felt desire to make and keep our communities strong and vibrant through high quality behavioral health care.

Join the Board of Directors!

If you believe in the future of our children, and want to make a difference in your community, consider joining our board of directors. Whatever your experience or background, we are an inclusive organization with an interest in representing all community stakeholders on our board, including those with lived experience, healthcare professionals, members of the business community, members of the faith community, veterans and their families, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and people living across Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley.
