Good health is vital in a young person’s overall development. It allows youth to focus on learning and building confidence in their lives. That’s why Covenant House Alaska offers a variety of free health services.

Upon admission, all youth complete a health history form and receive a basic check-up from our staff nurse practitioner. A comprehensive medical care plan is then developed and integrated into the youth’s case plan, ensuring their health is a priority during their stay.

Services available to youth include:

  • Evaluation and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries
  • Physicals for work, school and special programs
  • Immunizations
  • PPDs (tuberculosis skin tests)
  • Assistance with applying for Medicaid or Denali Kid Care
  • Referrals for community health services
  • Access to Mental Health Clinicians
     

Clinic hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information, contact Covenant House Alaska's nurse practitioner at 907- 339-4249.
