What we do
The Kenai Peninsula Community Care Center was founded in 1973 to provide shelter for homeless youth. Through the years we expanded to provide residential care and treatment to youth. In 2022, we sold the residential facility to focus on our Therapeutic Foster Care program which provides supports to families and youth in a therapeutic home environment.
Every child needs and deserves to grow up safe and protected from abuse and neglect. Our caring foster parents offer children support and stability when they need it most. KPCCC specializes in treatment foster care for children and adolescents that need extra support as they learn about life. We partner with our foster parents/homes to provide trauma informed care, parent support and therapeutic mentoring, to maintain children in a least restrictive, yet most appropriate level of care.
Kenai Peninsula Community Care Center is supported by the State of Alaska and is accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA).
