Doing nothing is not an option

The number of deaths among Anchorage’s homeless population is unacceptable. No fewer than 23 homeless people have been found dead in our parks, forested areas, private lawns, and various other urban locations in just over a year. Anchorage residents, public officials, and social service professionals are debating whether and where to introduce a Housing First facility in Anchorage. Our view is that this is a debate worth having. We as a community need to find a workable solution. It is both the right and fiscally prudent thing to do.
