About Us

The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to provide dynamic leadership in making homelessness rare, brief, and one-time. We believe that every Alaskan deserves a roof over their head, a place to put down anchor and feel safe with their loved ones. Our core values are respect, dignity, equity, and compassion.

Our History

The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) began in 2004 as a grassroots collaboration between homeless service providers who recognized the need for a community strategy and response to end homelessness in Anchorage.

Since its creation, ACEH has grown in partnership with the larger community, establishing 501c(3) status in 2012, becoming its own fiscal agent in July 2013, and expanding its membership to include individuals and organizations across the city. ACEH remains the only Anchorage convener of community members, businesses, and providers in Anchorage working towards the shared goal of making homelessness rare, brief, and one-time.

Housing Definitions: Knowing the Terms
