Covenant House Alaska, a lifeline for youth facing homelessness, trafficking, and instability across the state, has announced the addition of David Bullock to its Board of Directors. The accomplished tech entrepreneur and creative visionary joins as the non-profit faces a critical $80,000 funding gap nearing the end of its fiscal year on June 30th.

David Bullock, Founder 907 Agency

Bullock, an Anchorage native known to hundreds of thousands of social media followers as simply @Alaska, was praised by Forbes Magazine as “one of the brightest minds in entertainment marketing.” He founded the creative agency, 907 Agency, in 2017.

“I’m honored to join Covenant House Alaska’s mission of empowering vulnerable youth through unconditional love and support,” said Bullock. “As an Alaskan, I’ve seen firsthand the critical need for services that support young people facing adversity and create opportunities for them to thrive.”

Bullock’s entrepreneurial mindset, creativity, and passion for youth empowerment will provide valuable leadership as Covenant House Alaska expands services to rural areas and evolves its programs. However, funding remains the biggest challenge.

Like many non-profits nationwide, Covenant House Alaska has been hit with increased operating costs coupled with an overall decline in donations amid economic uncertainties. This $80,000 funding crunch puts vital services and support at risk.

“The need for our services has never been greater, but our ability to provide that support is being severely challenged,” said Alison Kear, Chief Executive Officer of Covenant House Alaska. “Every day, we see youth facing unimaginable adversity and trauma walk through our doors seeking refuge, safety, and hope for a better future.”

Covenant House Alaska offers comprehensive residential services, street outreach, job training, education resources, counseling, medical services, legal aid, human trafficking prevention, and more – empowering youth to overcome adversity and transition to independence. Its facilities remain open 24/7 with a policy of unconditional love, absolute respect, and relentless support.

The non-profit is urgently calling on compassionate Alaskans and corporations to help close the $80,000 gap before June 30th and ensure these life-changing services can continue.

“With support from our community, we can keep our doors open and continue being that bridge to hope that changes the trajectory of these young people’s lives,” said Kear. “Every donation makes an incredible difference.”
