Having a safe home is fundamental for emotional and physical wellbeing. The annual point in time homelessness count for Alaska has for years revealed that about 2000 people across the state, do not have their own home. This includes families with children, teenagers, veterans and others. Is it possible to get to zero? Ending homelessness in Alaska is our discussion, on the next Talk of Alaska.

HOST: Lori Townsend

  • Jasmine Khan, Executive Director, Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness
