Our Goals

How We Work

We utilize the Collective Impact Framework to guide our work of changing the systems that impact children and families in the Mat-Su Borough. The framework calls for multiple organizations or entities from different sectors to champion a common agenda, shared measurement, alignment of effort, and continuous communication. Mat-Su Health Foundation serves as the backbone organization by providing dedicated staff and infrastructure to support the work of the collective.

Who We Are

We are a cross-sector collaborative of organizations, individuals, funders, and state agencies that support healthy, resilient families in Mat-Su. The Steering Committee guides the priorities and strategic work of the collective, with input from the Youth Leadership Council. The collective is also supported by the backbone organization, Mat-Su Health Foundation, and staff dedicated solely to moving forward the work of R.O.C.K. Mat-Su.
