Parent Resources

Alaska Parent Line

While Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) is not a direct service provider, we are a link to connect parents, families, caregivers and the community at large with the resources needed to protect Alaska’s children and strengthen Alaska’s families.
 
Anyone caring for a child can call the Alaska Parent Line and talk with an early childhood development specialist who can provide individualized child development information, discipline suggestions, or other appropriate supports.

The Parent Line is a support line around parenting techniques and child development issues. We do not provide ongoing counseling; however, we will provide referrals to other appropriate agencies if callers are in the midst of a crisis or need more comprehensive social service assistance.

Contact the Alaska Parent Line by calling 2-1-1 or visiting www.alaska211.org.
