Cradle to Career Anchorage is a community-driven initiative supported by United Way of Anchorage which aims to ensure Anchorage’s children and youth are safe, healthy, and nurtured by family and community, and thrive at every stage of development. The initiative provides resources, connections, and community to eliminate disparate outcomes for Anchorage families, especially those furthest from opportunity, so that every child may reach their full potential.
