June 17, 2022
Anchorage, AK – The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) was brought into the Facilitated Workgroup in December ’21 to provide subject matter expertise in implementing the Mass Care Exit Strategy. The Complex Care Facility for medically fragile individuals and the Workforce and Supportive Housing at the GuestHouse are planks of the exit strategy that ACEH successfully implemented and continues to support. Communication and compromise are necessary for any meaningful facilitation and ACEH will continue to work with service providers and other entities dedicated to serving people experiencing homelessness with dignity, respect, and compassion.

About the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness
The mission of the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness is to provide dynamic leadership in making homelessness rare, brief, and one time. As the lead for the Anchorage Continuum of Care, ACEH seeks to promote communitywide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts to quickly rehouse individuals and families experiencing homelessness while minimizing trauma and dislocation; promote access to services needed by individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and optimize self-sufficiency.
Housing First is a proven approach, applicable across all elements of systems for ending homelessness, in which people experiencing homelessness are connected to permanent housing swiftly and with few to no treatment preconditions, behavioral contingencies, or other barriers.
This program was initiated to meet the need of the over 300 unsheltered individuals and families in the Anchorage area.
Thank you to Alaska CF and community members for making this program possible.
The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness is soliciting proposals from qualified organizations that are pursuing solutions to family homelessness in the Municipality of Anchorage.
