  • Aid in the design an implementation of the Anchorage Mayoral Homeless Initiative

  • Conduct a community needs assessment and service gap analysis for the Anchorage Homeless service agencies

  • Work with a team to develop and implement a program to support agencies in growing their capacity to serve the homeless

The Community of Anchorage

In one word, life in Anchorage is exciting. There are always adventures to be had wherever you go. Anchorage is home to some of the best hiking, skiing, canoeing, fishing and biking in America. At the same time, Anchorage also has a thriving restaurant scene and all the amenities you would typically find in a big city. You will rarely ever be bored during your stay in Anchorage.
