Our Mission

The Alaska Center for FASD works to reduce alcohol-exposed pregnancies, promotes successful outcomes for affected individuals and families, and is the catalyst for creating FASD-informed communities of care.

Our Vision

All communities recognize Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) as preventable birth defects, and simultaneously recognize and honor the inherent human value of individuals living with brain-based differences, to create healthier, more successful life experiences for all Alaskans.

Our Goals

  • Be a statewide, sustainable resource for credible information and advocacy about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)
  • Advocate for systems that better recognize and support individuals and families affected by FASD across the lifespan
  • Pursue a cultural shift that eliminates stigma and celebrates and supports individuals and families through peer-inclusive community engagement
  • Show evidence of Center productivity
  • Support efforts to prevent alcohol exposure during pregnancy
