Our rich philanthropic history started in the 1950’s. That passion continues to drive our active community partnerships that provide support for more Valley residents trying to make ends meet.
As Valley residents, we are known for pioneer spirit and passion to serve our community. We will continuously work to help bridge social and financial gaps by facilitating relationships, that assist serving more residents, and connect their needs with resources.
We have expanded our positive social footprint in the Mat-Su Borough by helping low-come and homeless individuals and families improve their housing situations.

Valley Charities, Inc. and our agency partners help prevent those situations from occurring through HUD and State Grant awards.
