Our Mission is to improve the foster care system through sharing our experiences, supporting and educating youth and social services and implementing positive change in society as a whole

About Us

Facing Foster Care in Alaska (FFCA) is a group of current foster youth and alumni that has formed to make improvements to the foster care system in Alaska.

Guidelines for FFCA membership -- youth currently in care, age 15 and older, are eligible. Youth must  be willing to participate in the advisory board, and must want to work on improving the foster care system for others. Alumni are those youth ages 18-24 and currently out of care who were in legal out-of-home placement through the Office of Children’s Services sometime during their youth. Members meet quarterly in their regions. Read more

If you are interested in joining us, or know of a youth or alumni who may be interested in joining FFCA, please contact Amanda Metivier at facing_fostercare@yahoo.com or (907) 230-8237.
