Greatest news!!!

Alaska Family Health and Birth Center has been awarded a $25,000 grant to install a generator for the building! This grant was awarded by Rasmuson Foundation and we could not be more appreciative and honored!

Two winters ago, there was a power outage in our neighborhood that lasted 3 days. This meant that we could not help families with their birth in the building but instead were able to attend them in their home. While we are amazed at the adaptability of families, we endeavored to have a way to keep the birth center fully functioning in the event of a power outage. This generator will power the whole building including three birth rooms, laundry room, lab, and clinic side! It will ensure that our building is safe and protected from the elements.

We are grateful Rasmuson Foundation has given this gift to our non profit organization!
