    Alaska Children's Services began as an orphanage in Unalaska in 1890. Known as the Jesse Lee Home, this Methodist-sponsored program served hundreds of Alaskan children until 1925, when it moved to larger facilities in Seward. The Jesse Lee Home provided the basic necessities of food and shelter, as well as love, caring, nurturing, job skills training, and encouragement toward self-reliance. After suffering severe damage from the Good Friday earthquake of 1964, the Jesse Lee Home moved from Seward to its current location in Anchorage and began the transition from orphanage to treatment center. less
