Our Mission Is To End Homelessness In Alaska

The Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness (AKCH2) is a statewide organization working to develop strategies to increase the availability of affordable housing and eliminate homelessness in our great state.

The Coalition began in 1989 and holds meetings on the third Tuesday of each month. The Coalition's annual conference brings together social service providers, housing developers, policymakers, and those experiencing homelessness to network and strategize on how best to fulfill our mission.
