Thanks to an innovative partnership between Catholic Social Services, Alaska Regional, Providence Alaska Medical Center, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, and SCF, increased health care and respite services are now available at Brother Francis Shelter.
Organizational partnerships are strengths of Southcentral Foundation. The research department has been fortunate to collaborate with customer-owners, Tribal leadership, SCF departments, and clinical services at the SCF’s primary care centers.
Summer break is here and Alaska’s children need your help. On average, nearly 51,000 Alaskan children received free or reduced-price school meals through the USDA National School Lunch Program in school year 2016–2017, while only about 4,700 (9%) participated in the Summer Food Service Program.
Since its inaugural conference in 2011, Southcentral Foundation has welcomed Nuka Conference attendees from all over the world. Conference-goers have visited from 30 U.S. states, six Canadian provinces, and traveled across oceans from places as far as Australia, Great Britain, New Zealand, Scotland, and Singapore to learn about a system of health care shaped by Alaska Native people.
