The Roots Of Homelessness

By | October 19, 2012 - 12:00 pm

Homelessness affects every community in Alaska, not only the larger cities, and mental health and substance abuse problems mean some of without their own beds have been homeless for a long time. A new idea, spreading across the state, is to provide apartments, even when we can’t solve these root problems. Housing first—homeless shelter with alcohol allowed—is the topic on the next Talk of Alaska.
