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.
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.
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
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.
