brother-francis-shelter-imageBrother Francis Shelter, a program of Catholic Social Services, is an emergency shelter for men and women in Anchorage without a home. We serve the homeless with dignity, care, compassion and with an emphasis on moving our guests toward self-sufficiency.

Most of our shelter guests want to transition out of homelessness, and our staff is trained and ready to provide them with every opportunity to do so. We offer our guests access to a variety of different programs and services.
