The Arc of Anchorage


The Arc of Anchorage helps Alaskans who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities or mental illness achieve lives of dignity and independence as valued members of our community. We offer a full array of services that cover the lifespan of the people we serve. In consultation with our staff, families choose the services that best meet their needs.

Stone Soup Group (SSG)

(907) 561-3701
Toll Free: (877) 786-7327

The SSG is a statewide 501(c)3 non-profit that provides information, support, training and resources to assist families caring for children with special needs. SSG is staffed almost entirely by parents or family members of a child with special needs, so they know the journey and are better able to help other families navigate through what is often an overwhelming and confusing process following a diagnosis or, at times of transition later down the road.
