Alaska Island Community Services was established in Wrangell in 1989 under the original name Wrangell Community Services, and began providing Core Mental Health Services to the Community of Wrangell in 1990. Over the next decade the delivery of services expanded to include Disability and Senior Services. In the late 1990’s we also began offering a rehabilitative wilderness experience for youth and it has continued to blossom into what is now known throughout the northwest as the Crossings Program.
The early 2000’s were good years of growth and prosperity for AICS as additional programs and services became available, including substance abuse treatment and counseling, prevention and public health services and public assistance opportunities to facilitate Medicaid applications and food stamp programs.
In 2004 AICS began offering primary care at the Clinic and obtained competitive grant funding to become a federally qualified health center. In 2007 AICS also began offering Dental Services. Our most recent addition is our Pharmacy Department in 2009. As a federally qualified health center, all of our services are provided on a sliding fee discount scale based on federal guidelines.
On April 1, 2017 Alaska Island Community Services and Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) made their affiliation final. AICS retains its name and will continue providing services as a division of SEARHC.
