Mission Stone Soup Group exists to sustain the health and well-being of Alaskan children with special needs and their families. Through listening to the stories of families, we identify areas of need and work with communities to find solutions. Vision Families statewide will be empowered to make informed decisions that will ensure every child who experiences special needs receives long-term, quality, coordinated care and family support. Core Values Respect - Family Centered- Excellence - Partnership
Stone Soup Group (SSG) is a statewide nonprofit organization created in 1992 by parents of children and youth with disabilities, healthcare providers, and social workers who shared a common vision for interconnected, collaborative, family-driven assistance for other families of children and youth with special needs.
Our name is a nod to the children's fable, in which, after being convinced by a hungry stranger that they can make soup with just a stone, a village of people each decide to contribute their own meats and vegetables, until there is enough balanced, nutritious soup to feed everyone.
This spirit of collaboration and input of varied experience and knowledge is the philosophy behind the work we do at SSG.
SSG works with families of children with special needs from birth up to age 26. Our services are available statewide to help families with medical, disability, mental health, and special education issues. Our programs focus on a specific need and most are at no cost to families.
