Who We Are

At the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska, we recognize the challenges of military life, especially in a remote area like Alaska. That’s why we’re devoted to nurturing the well-being of Alaska’s military community, regardless of their branch of service or duty status. We support our troops by connecting military families from installations all over Alaska with free and low-cost programs and services designed to help make military life easier. With two offices on Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson in the Anchorage area, and a satellite office on Ft. Wainwright in interior Alaska, we are well positioned to serve those who serve our country.
