SCF provides a wide range of health and wellness services for Alaska Native and American Indian people living in Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, and nearby villages. We also provide regional support to residents of 55 rural villages in the Anchorage Service Unit. SCF’s Nuka System of Care is created, managed and owned by Alaska Native people.
