Flags of Awareness
Colorful, red, blue, yellow hand written flags frayed by the wind flying at base camp each with a message of hope, love, forgiveness, respect, and honor. Each hand written by men, young boys and teens, and all send the same message, which is domestic abuse must stop.
Alaska has the highest rate of domestic violence nationally and the Mat-Su Borough the highest rate in Alaska. The Winds of Awareness Project carries a very powerful message; stop the violence now.
Sunshine Clinic also facilitates the "Women and Children in Crisis" funds which is made possible by generous donations from the annual Bachelor's Society Auction. This fund is in place to provide medical assistance, shelter, transportation and other services to aid women in children who may be victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or find themselves in other types of crises. To access the funds please call and ask to speak with the Patient Advocate or speak with a provider, nurse or admin staff member.
