Support to help you focus on your health

For military parents, it can often be difficult to focus on their own health and well-being when their attention is divided between their care provider and their children. The ASYMCA Children's Waiting Room (ACWR) is a free program that provides a safe, nurturing environment for children while their parents attend medical appointments at the JBER Hospital, the Bassett Army Community Hospital on Ft. Wainwright, or the Eielson Clinic Campus.

The ASYMCA is deeply committed to providing an affordable, safe, nurturing, and fun environment for our children. We welcome you to call us to ask questions or to schedule a visit. Within all of our programs, you will find a strong emphasis on the core values of the ASYMCA: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
