Complex Care provides support for medically fragile individuals experiencing homelessness.
Our Complex Care Facility
Located at 303 West Fireweed Lane in Anchorage, Alaska, the Complex Care facility can serve up to 83 guests at any one time. It provides a private, stable place for guests to stay while they complete assessments and are connected to benefits and resources to support their path toward permanent housing.
Complex Care exists to meet a specific need growing in our community – homelessness among our medically fragile and elderly neighbors. It offers a level of tailored support, using research-backed approaches like Trauma-Informed Care and Critical Time Intervention to care for high-need individuals. This program is just one piece of a greater network of services needed in Anchorage, but it will be an important element in building a homelessness response system that has compassion and equity at the core of its values.
Made Possible Through Collaboration
Complex Care is a community effort, made possible by the financial support of the following organizations:
- Calista Corporation
- Chugach Alaska Corporation
- Doyon, Limited
- The Municipality of Anchorage
- Providence Health & Services
- Rasmuson Foundation
- Weidner Apartment Homes
With the support of our funders, the building was purchased by a newly created entity called Ship Creek Community Assets II (formerly the Sockeye Inn), and CSS is proud to operate the facility and provide the services. We’re able to care for guests with specialized needs, including seniors and medically fragile individuals, in this new non-congregate project.
Complex Care continues the specialized shelter approach happening throughout our homelessness response system, resulting in positive outcomes for our entire community and all our guests.
