Mission Statement

The mission of Choosing Our Roots is to ensure that all queer youth and young adults in Alaska have access to safe homes, supportive communities, and opportunities to thrive. To learn more about our community host home model, check out our website.


Choosing Our Roots provides participants with more than just shelter: COR assists queer youth and young adults, ages 13 to 24, by building supportive, long-term relationships with volunteer Host Home families.

In addition to providing safe homes and bringing together new families, COR coordinates with community partners to provide wrap-around services and build a network of support for its participants.

COR is currently offering services in the MatSu Valley and Anchorage areas; however, COR’s strategic vision includes expansion to hub communities throughout Alaska so that all queer, Alaskan youth can have the supportive relationships and communities they need to thrive.

The next generation of Alaska’s queer leaders can already be found on COR’s Board of Directors and in its steering committees.
