Thousands of people experience homelessness on any given day in Anchorage. We shelter more than 250 of these people every day. Brother Francis Shelter, Clare House, and Complex Care 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 toward permanent stability.

How We Shelter Our Neighbors

Case Management Services

Homeless Family Services and Supportive 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, and more.

A Story of Hope Through Veteran Services


St. Francis House Food Pantry provides hunger relief to over 90 families each day. One of the largest food pantries in Anchorage and a leader in the anti-hunger network, St. Francis House Food Pantry provides a 2-day emergency supply of food to anyone in need.

How We Feed Our Neighboors


Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services is the resettlement agency for the state of Alaska. We provide refugees with resources as they settle in Anchorage—connecting them with jobs and weaving them into the fabric of the community. 

How We Provide Opportunity

Disability Services

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.
