Help for the
Over 1,000 people are living homeless in Anchorage. We shelter more than 150 of these people every day. Brother Francis Shelter and Clare House are more than just emergency shelters for adults and families. Homeless Family Services case managers work around the clock to help people transition out of homelessness and experience renewed potential with dignity and respect.
Case Management Services
Homeless Family Services case managers provide trauma informed care and critical time intervention to clients. This is done through initiatives like Supportive Services for Veteran Families, Flourishing Families, Path to Independence and more.
St. Francis House Food Pantry provides hunger relief to over 100 families each day. One of the largest food pantries in Anchorage and a leader in the anti-hunger movement, St. Francis House Food Pantry provides a 2-day emergency supply of food to anyone in need.
Of the refugees we resettle, 79% are off public assistance after one year. Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services is the resettlement agency for the state of Alaska. We provide refugees with helpful resources as they settle in Anchorage—connecting them with jobs and weaving them into the fabric of the community.
The challenges of caring for a loved one with developmental disabilities are great, but Family Disability Services exists to ensure they are not insurmountable. We provide a range of developmental disability resources and trained respite providers who work with people in their homes and out in the community.
