Fairbanks Youth Advocates

Fairbanks Youth Advocates believes that providing assistance at critical times in the lives of young people is vital to their present and future well being, ultimately contributing to the stability and long-term health of our community. We seek to facilitate at-risk youth during life transitions. Foundational in this effort is ensuring young kids have a safe place to stay when they find themselves without a home.

Our services are available for ALL youth aged 12-18 youth regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, gender, disability, religion, or sexual orientation. We respect and honor the human dignity of all people. Under no circumstances is it required or expected that an individual believes a certain way to access or receive services.
