3rd Avenue Resource & Navigation Center is a place for adults experiencing homelessness to access a full range of services, from short-term needs like a shower or a phone charge, to long-term engagement like case management and employment support. Along with CSS staff, other partner service providers work alongside us and share the facility, so a client at the center can meet with case managers, housing coordinators, or employment specialists all in one location.

Bringing People and Resources Together

For clients on the path to permanent stability, basic needs like a shower, computer access, or transportation often become the barrier that prevents them from meeting service providers and taking steps forward. The 3rd Avenue Resource & Navigation Center eliminates these barriers by providing a walk-up space where clients can both meet basic needs and engage with service providers.

The center meets a long-standing need for our community: a single place to go for help and a seamless resource and referral system that can coordinate between providers and resources across Anchorage.
