Carry the Cure plans to vist every village in Alaska with its "Committed to Life" suicide prevention program by the year 2020. So far, we've visited about a third of the villages in Alaska. In the villages we have visited, there has been a zero occurance of suicides among the students that have participated in our program. Please help by praying, giving and going. Your partnership can make all the difference.
Each outreach costs between $3,000 and $35,000 depending on the size of team, the length of the trip and the distance from our home base in Palmer, AK.
