Opening with just 11 chairs and seven employees, Southcentral Foundation Dental has come a long way since its humble beginnings.
Southcentral Foundation uses customer-owner feedback to support and drive all major decisions. The needs and wants of the people utilizing its services are sought out, heard, and integrated into every decision, structure, and process implemented within SCF.
Southcentral Foundation recognizes that engaged employees are committed to their employers; that when employees are committed, money is saved; and that when money is saved, more funds are available for services to improve the lives of customer-owners.
Alaska is known for many things, including its beautiful landscapes, breathtaking glaciers, and seemingly endless summer days; these things make us proud to be Alaskan.
Just 40 air miles southwest of Anchorage, situated along the west bank of the Cook Inlet, sits the Native Village of Tyonek. In February, the village held a Return of the Light community gathering and invited Southcentral Foundation to join in the celebration.
Valuing people and relationships is a cornerstone to Southcentral Foundation’s success. As a community-minded organization, SCF is proud to serve more than 65,000 Alaska Native and American Indian people in Southcentral Alaska, and partners with other Anchorage nonprofits to serve some of the city’s most vulnerable populations.
