The state of Alaska Senior and Disability mission is to promote health, wellbeing and safety for individuals with disabilities, seniors and vulnerable adults by facilitating access to quality services and supports that foster independence, personal choice and dignity.
Stone Soup Group is a nonprofit organization created 1992 by parents of children with disabilities, healthcare providers and social workers who shared a common vision for interconnected, collaborative, family-driven assistance for Alaskan families of children with special needs.
ALSC was established in 1967 as a private, nonprofit law firm. Our mission is to provide high quality civil legal services to low income and disadvantaged people and communities to protect their safety, their health and promote family stability. We are dedicated to bridging the statewide gap between those who need civil legal help and those who are able to get it. We have an unwavering and longstanding commitment to assuring that Alaska’s rural communities have access to the justice system. Through advocacy, education, collaboration and litigation we empower individuals, protect fundamental rights, strengthen communities, create opportunities and achieve justice.
