Alliance for Young Families

The Tikahtnu Tribal Alliance for Young Families provides a variety of resources and services for expecting and/or parenting youth under the age of 24.

Through a partnership with Knik Tribal Council, we offer three different opportunities, depending on eligibility:

Outreach Activities bring together CITC, Knik Tribal Council, and a host of other youth-focused organizations to promote our program to the community through cultural activities, wellness activities, and activities that allow participants to expand their knowledge and apply it in real-life situations.

Eligibility

Outreach Activities are open to all youth up to age 24 who reside in the Anchorage/Mat-Su area.

Resource Events allow people to connect with community programs to open the doors to educational and wellness goals. These services include:

  • referrals to other agencies
  • peer navigator support
  • ability to identify and navigate resources in the community

We also have a downloadable Resource Guide available for young families in Anchorage, Eagle River, and Mat-Su.

Eligibility

Resource Events are for youth up to age 24 who are pregnant/expecting or parenting, even if they don’t have custody of their child.

Case Management offers support from Parent Navigators who offer:

  • educational services
  • employment referrals and placements
  • financial assistance
  • child care
  • wellness opportunities

Eligibility

This program is for eligible low-income Alaska Native and Native American pregnant and parenting youth up to age 24 residing in the Anchorage/Mat-Su area, whether they have custody of their child or not.
