CHALLENGE #14 - 2019

Anchorage, Alaska


In 1976, a group of determined Anchorage women decided to address their concerns about domestic violence in the community.  Hard work and persistence resulted in the creation of a safe home for battered women and their children in August 1977.  Initially, the shelter provided only temporary, emergency refuge where victims could escape abuse and have time to consider their options for the future.  In 1983, AWAIC opened the doors of its present facility which includes a 52-bed shelter.  It is the largest domestic violence safe shelter in Alaska. 

“Our goal is to teach people to live and love without violence”.
