Family Assistance Foundation

ATIA is now a partner of the Family Assistance Foundation (FAF). The Family Assistance Foundation’s mission is to support and improve business and industry responses to emergencies and disasters. ATIA members can now access their network to coordinate and mobilize resources during a crisis.

Additionally, ATIA members now have access to training programs provided by FAF. This will allow us to grow the number of responders in Alaska should a crisis or emergency situation arise.


ATIA will host the 3rd Annual Family Assistance Foundation Human Services Response (TM) training in Juneau, Alaska on March 27-28, 2018. This two-day training will provide attendees with knowledge and skills necessary for assisting anyone who may be impacted by an incident/accident involving their company, as well as taking care of their own health and family connections during a time of crisis.Thank you to our sponsors: Alaska Railroad, Explore Fairbanks, John Hall's Alaska Cruises and Tours, and Alaska Coach Tours.

“I had a guest suffer the loss of her husband while traveling in rural Alaska. This meant she would be alone in Anchorage trying to make arrangements while grieving and in shock and being miles from her family. These types of situations are a reality to some of our Alaska visitors. I am so relieved and pleased that we now have the resources of the Family Assistance Foundation available to us through ATIA. Especially for those of us offering Alaskan Experiences in rural Alaska, we now have peace of mind knowing we have a network of trained industry professionals to ensure our guests are taken care of in difficult times.”
