Shop at our Thrift Store!

Whether you donate to or buy from Family First Treasures, you’re supporting Alaska Family Services’ clients. For any purchased items, 100% of the net proceeds support our clients. For many clients of our domestic violence and sexual assault shelter, the only option is to start over. To help with this, we make sure that they have full access to donated items at no cost to them.
