Community Programs Locations

Maley Center

Also known as our Community Programs building, the Maley Center is the administrative hub for our Therapeutic Treatment Homes, Home-Based, and AK Child C.A.R.E.S programs. The Maley Center is located on the East side of town in an urban area with dedicated parking for our employees and visiting families and public transportation access. Our Community Programs provide services to families and youth ages 3 to 21 through Intensive/Case Management, Activity (Skill-building) Therapy, and Clinical Services. These services can be accessed in our administrative building or in the community, whichever is most convenient and / or best meets the needs of the families and youth we serve. Our Activity Therapy wing houses a fully stocked play room, snack area, a technology center, and sensory room. The Maley Center also serves as our central licensing site for our Therapeutic Treatment Homes, which can be found in various locations in the greater Anchorage area.

Daybreak / Matsutani Center

AK Child & Family’s most recent addition to its service buildings, the Daybreak/Matsutani Center is located on the South side of town off of Abbott Road near our flagship campus, the Jesse Lee Campus. This building provides additional space for Activity Therapy services, and is outfitted with a full commercial kitchen as well as spaces for music, art, sensory, and play. Daybreak/ Matsutani Center also provides space for AK Child & Family’s board to meet, for our Spiritual Life Department to provide services, as well as for a variety of community functions.

Therapeutic Treatment Homes

Therapeutic Treatment Homes are located throughout our community to support the diverse needs of the youth in our care. Homes may host between one and five youth, and may provide temporary therapeutic respite care for other youth. Therapeutic Treatment Homes are state licensed homes that have contracted with AK Child & Family to specialize in Therapeutic intervention-based placement, and vary in style and size. Homes may be condominiums, apartments, family homes, or located in a multiplex. The size and style of the home impacts the number of youth who can receive services within that home. The homes are inspected annually to meet state guidelines for health and safety, and have at least a monthly visit by our AK Child & Family Licensing Supervisor staff. 

Therapeutic Parents work with youth on a daily basis to meet the goals of their treatment plans. Therapeutic Parents receive extensive, ongoing training including MANDT certification, CPR certification, Pressley Ridge Therapeutic Treatment Home Training, as well as needs-specific trainings to effectively support youth with a variety of treatment concerns. Twenty-five annual training hours are required for single parent households; 35 annual training hours for 2-parent households. Tailored trainings are provided to meet and nurture the needs of youth receiving services within the home.
