The ASYMCA of Alaska believes that all service members and their families deserve support, enrichment, recognition, security, independence, and opportunities to improve their family bond, family resiliency, and health/wellness. To aid in our efforts, we provide over 20 programs and services designed to directly address the needs of our military and their families as identified by military leadership. This arsenal of programs help to alleviate stress, assist with life challenges, and increase the morale and welfare of our nation’s heroes, enabling them to better focus on their mission of service.
Support our current critical Operation.
Help the ASYMCA of Alaska strengthen our military families this #GivingTuesday.
On Saturday, February 17, 2018, the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska will be hosting their 41st Annual Salute to the Military—a formal banquet that celebrates the accomplishments of 12 outstanding military service members, ranked E6 or below. Each branch of military service, including active duty, guard, and reserves, selects one exceptional Alaskan service member who has exemplified integrity and service before self throughout their military careers.
Registration for this event is currently open.

This program provides children of deployed service members a quilt (for age 6 and under) or standard-size pillow case (age 7 and older) with pictures of the deployed service member and the family. This program is designed to comfort and help children during the deployment. We have wonderful volunteer quilters who meet once-a-month to sew these quilts and pillow cases.
