Denali Family Services serves children who require intensive behavioral health care services, their families and also individuals. Denali Family Services offers individual, family and group psychotherapy services in combination with intensive care coordination and rehabilitative services. The majority of the consumers served are children who experience mental illness. We are expanding our services to include adults that experience mental health issues. Denali Family Services serves an average of 200 consumers each month in Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Valley areas.
DFS maintains an active foster care program, licensing treatment foster homes, placing children in those homes and working in partnership with the foster parents and the DFS clinical staff to ensure the child is making progress toward his/her treatment goals. The foster care program accepts a number of placements of children in OCS custody who are returning to Alaska after receiving residential treatment in the Lower 48.
Finally, DFS operates a therapeutic pre-school, “Little Steps.” The goal of this program is to provide a safe structured environment where children may work on developing social competency.
