Barrow/North Slope Borough Region
Areas Served: Barrow, North Slope Borough
Regional Services Established: 2001
Number Served: 23
The Barrow/North Slope Borough services are very different from the rest of Hope’s programs. It is the only program at Hope that offers assisted living to elders who do not experience a developmental disability and it is the only area that it offers Personal Care Attendant (PCA) services.
At the request of the North Slope Borough (NSB), Hope ventured into the arena of PCA services in Barrow. In 2004, the NSB transferred the operations of its assisted living home over to Hope, along with the grant funds to operate and provide services to seven elders. In 2008, the NSB built a new facility, which will enable Hope to provide services to up to 12 elders in their home community.
Services Specific to the Region:
Located at the “top of the world,” this regional office is essential to providing services to some of the most remote territory in Alaska. The program’s goal is to be a bridge that keeps people connected to their culture, while receiving services in their community.
Hope is currently the only provider of assisted living services and PCA services in this region.
Each year they participate in and promote the virtual Walk & Roll for Hope to benefit the local program.
