In 2003, a group of dedicated foster care youth and alumni from across Alaska came together to share their issues and form a Youth Advisory Board. In 2004, the group adopted the name Facing Foster Care in Alaska (FFCA). FFCA is dedicated to sustaining a statewide organization that will continue to work towards supporting foster youth and improving the foster care system.

FFCA has touched the lives of hundreds of youth and alumni across Alaska and the U.S. FFCA members have worked to improve the foster care system on both a state and national level through partnerships with state and private agencies, and youth alumni networks. Recent accomplishments:

  • Developed a policy agenda with issues that were introduced in state legislation in the House and Senate.
  • Hosted a rally around foster care reform.
  • Launched the FosterWear Program.
  • FFCA has become nationally recognized as members have traveled throughout the country to present at various conferences, and even met with members of congress.
  • Developed a statewide network of youth and alumni across Alaska.
