Bring the Kids Home – Youth in Transition Project
The Bring the Kids Home initiative was designed to address and reduce the number of Alaska children being treated and institutionalized out of state. The Youth in Transition Project aims to assist youth/young adult’s transition into the community from residential psychiatric care. The ACMHS Bring the Kids Home staff coordinate with other service providers in Anchorage to identify resources that can be used to assist youth in transition to have the level of services and supports necessary to assure reduced institutionalization and increased community tenure. This program operates supported housing for up to four transitional aged youth at any one time.
This program is funded, in part by Bring the Kids Home funds provided by the Alaska Mental Health Trust.
