  • Mission:
  • Mission: Alaska Attachment & Bonding Associates mission is to support healthy family attachments and bonds through education, training and advocacy.

    Vision: Alaska Attachment & Bonding Associates is committed to healthy attachments and bonds for all Alaska children and families.

  • History:
  • . History: In late 1997 two mothers (parents) came together to discuss the difficulties each was having in parenting children who had been labeled as having attachment disorders. The idea came about when the mothers decided to use their respective knowledge and resources. One mother came from an educational background while the other mother came from a correctional planning of exercise/crafts/recreation of prison populations. They decided to form an organization where other parents with similar problems and experiences could come and find the much-needed help to cope with these difficult children.
    Soon other interested individuals came together and a Board of Directors was established. All board members volunteered their time and talents toward the effort. AABA’s vision statement, mission statement, policies and procedures were adopted. On January 12, 1998, Alaska Attachment & Bonding Associates (AABA) became the organizations official name with a 501 (c) 3 status. AABA is comprised of volunteers, professionals and families who come to care for children through kinship care, adoption, guardianship and foster care. We are the only family driven organization of its type in Alaska
