Access Alaska is a private, non-profit, consumer-controlled organization that provides independent living services to people who experience a disability. As an Independent Living Center, our mission is to encourage and promote the total integration of people who experience a disability to live independently in the community of their choice. Through our assistance and support individuals with disabilities can identify and obtain needed services in an effort to maintain their independence as opposed to living in an institution
ACCA is a non-profit agency that has served the Fairbanks community since 1956. It began with a grassroots community effort to assist people needing orthopedic referrals and equipment as well as speech therapy. The agency was known as 'Alaska Crippled Children and Adults' and was associated with the Easter Seals Society. In 1998, the agency adopted a new name, 'Alaska Center for Children and Adults'. Over the years, programs for individuals with disabilities have grown with the Fairbanks community.
At Building Blocks Rehab, we provide Occupational and Physical Therapy to children with disabilities and work to help each child reach his or her fullest potential. We do this by promoting wellness, improving function, and diminishing the effects of the clinical impairments or disability.
We work with a variety of diagnoses including, but not exclusively:
Traumatic Brain Injury
Spinal Cord Injury
Sensory Processing Disorder

Fairbanks North Star Borough School District
The mission of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is to provide an excellent and equitable education in a safe, supportive environment so all students can become productive members of a diverse and changing society.
Any child who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 preceding the beginning of the school year is eligible to attend kindergarten. Children must be 6 years old on or before September 1 to attend first grade. New students need to enroll at the school they will be attending. A copy of the child's birth certificate is required for each pupil entering kindergarten or first grade. All new students must submit proof of immunization before being admitted into school.
EQUAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY
It is the policy of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District to provide a free appropriate public education, for all children to achieve maximum intellectual growth and development without discrimination due to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by local, state, or federal law, except where a bona fide requirement may lawfully disqualify an individual.
The Fairbanks school system is committed to providing and maintaining a learning and working environment in which racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious differences are recognized and valued.
Student learning is at the center of everything we do. High achievement evolves from high expectations and educational opportunities. Quality education requires highly motivated, skilled, supportive teachers, administrators, and support staff. Active partnerships with the family and community support successful student learning. Respect for the diversity and dignity of individuals and groups is essential.

Kuspuk School District: Where all children learn - whatever it takes!
The Resource Center Parents and Children (RCPC) has grown in size, strength, and commitment since 1973, when it was started by a small group of concerned Fairbanks citizens who met as the Fairbanks Child Protection Task Force (FCPTF) to discuss the problems of child abuse and neglect in the Fairbanks community. Over the years our programs and services have varied; however, all have focused on the same mission. The prevention of child abuse and neglect begins with strengthening the family structure, helping parents with parenting skills, and providing a safe place for parents to share and deal with parenting issues. The Resource Center for Parents and Children has been successful due to quality staff, programs and countless volunteers and social service agency partners. To all that have shared in our agency's history, thank you.
