Unalaskans Against Sexual Assault & Family Violence is committed to the elimination of family violence, and we believe that everyone deserves to be treated with respect. We believe that Power and Control are at the center of all domestic violence, and that no one deserves to be physically, emotionally, sexually, financially, or spiritually abused. Survivors are never at fault!
*If you believe you are in danger, please call 911!
USAFV has a staff of trained advocates answering our 24 hour crisis line. You can call the crisis line day or night and remain anonymous, and we are here to listen and support you through whatever you may be facing.
USAFV is one of 17 statewide programs that provide services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, including but not limited to: emergency shelter, legal advocacy, food, clothing, education, referrals, and transportation for those at risk of immediate danger.
USAFV advocates can help with filing Protective Orders and provide support to survivors during court hearings and trials if requested.
USAFV can provide confidential, knowledgeable support, for people who are making difficult decisions. We do not advise you what to do because we believe that you know what is best for your own life. We will help you plan for your safety and the safety of your children, no matter what your choices are. We will provide education, resources, advocacy, and referrals, and do our best to answer any questions you may have.
USAFV can also provide referrals for those seeking appropriate representation concerning complex legal matters such as divorce, custody, child support and women’s legal rights. We can assist you with completing applications for subsidized housing, heating assistance, food supplementation, WIC, and other available services.
In some cases, when funding allows, USAFV may be able to help with travel costs if a survivor determines that it is in her the best interest to leave her community.
USAFV has a fantastic library full of resources for personal, family, and community education.
We can also make referrals for more local counseling services.
We are a part of the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault (ANDVSA), and together we hope to make a difference in the lives of our Alaskan neighbors and create safer communities for us all.
Our goal is to assist where wanted, to encourage and support violence-free, safe, and healthy relationships in our beautiful state. We know that hope for a new and healthier way of life can start today.
