AWARE's 2023 Women of Distinction!

Congratulations to our 2023 Women of Distinction Honorees!

On Saturday, March 4th we celebrated (from left to right) Kate Wolfe, Jennifer Brown, LaRae Jones, & Susan Bell and the inspirational things they have done for people in the Juneau community.  Thank you to everyone who sponsored the event, purchased tickets/tables/ads, and honored these amazing women.  Thank you also to KINY for this article, which summed up the evening!

Join AWARE's Cordova Street Campaign!

AWARE finalized the purchase of two adjacent lots at 201 Cordova St. in November 2020. We are excited to develop seven compact but efficient Single Residence Occupancy units, ~385sq ft. each, to increase independence and safety for survivors in Juneau.

Healthy Relationships

In this group, we explore the elements of a healthy relationship. We develop techniques for boundary setting, assertiveness, realistic goal setting, and decision making. We increase our understanding of abuse, abusive family dynamics, dysfunctional family patterns, and feelings, with an emphasis on anger, fear, anxiety, guilt, and grief.

Nurturing Parenting Program

The Nurturing Parenting Programs work with the whole household to build nurturing skills. Each family gets a plan for support and learning based on their unique needs through a combination of one-on-one sessions with the family, as well as group sessions with other families. By building nurturing skills, we focus on the positive and take concrete steps toward healthier family dynamics. These programs are trauma-informed and evidence-based, with a 35-year track record to back them up. Click here to learn more.

In addition to the services that AWARE provides for all survivors, Spectrum is a support group specifically by and for folks in the LGBTQ2+ community who have experienced trauma.

Haa Tóoch Lichéesh

We believe it is possible

The Haa Tóoch Lichéesh Coalition addresses important social justice issues within our community and works to transform individual, institutional, and systemic inequities needed to eliminate oppression and gender-based violence.

Girls on the Run

At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.

Boys Run I toowú klatseen

Boys Run I toowú klatseen envisions boys and men possessing “strength of spirit.” Through our ten-week program – composed of running, discussion, and culturally based activities that honor Southeast Alaska traditional values – participants will gain the skills they need to build healthy relationships and create a community of respect for self and others.
