The mission of the Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) is to improve the status of children in Alaska by generating funds and committing resources to prevent child abuse and neglect. As the statewide leader of child abuse and neglect prevention, ACT has developed statewide and community-level partnerships and secured resources to prevent child maltreatment in Alaska. ACT values family focus, effective solutions, leveraging resources, convening partners and supporting grassroots efforts. ACT fulfills three key roles (1) advocate, (2) convener, and (3) catalyst. As an advocate, ACT strives to actively influence public policy within political, economic and social systems and institutions that help us build a state dedicated to ensuring the safety of Alaskan children. As a convener, ACT fosters relationships across the state that result in forward momentum. As a catalyst, ACT encourages a new culture, methodology and ideas in fighting an epidemic that has plagued Alaska for decades. Together we can prevent child abuse and neglect.
