Creating change that improves the lives of Alaskans with disabilities. 

Developmental Disabilities Shared Vision
Alaskans share a vision of a flexible system in which each person directs their own supports, based on their strengths and abilities, toward a meaningful life in their home, their job and their community. Our vision includes supported families, professional staff and services available throughout the state now and into the future. 




The DD Systems Collaborative, a network of organizations and individuals working on Alaska's Shared Vision, are gathering information on the impact of our work. Let your voice be heard!

Alaskans with disabilities deserve respect, and to be equal to everyone else. That means living a full life, free of abuse and neglect. The Governor’s Council on Disabilities & Special Education and the Disability Law Center of Alaska worked together with self-advocates to share this important message.

To report abuse or neglect of a vulnerable Alaskan, call Adult Protective Services at 1-800-478-9996 or file a report online. Watch this important PSA with Jamie Kokoszka and Ian Miner Closed Captions and Open Captions.
