Alaska can be a harsh environment, especially for those who are homeless. The recent, severe cold weather has turned difficult conditions into life threatening ones. Many shelters across the state are at max capacity. How are shelter managers and others who work to end homelessness grappling with extreme need for those who are most vulnerable during this extended cold snap? We’ll discuss it on the next Talk of Alaska.
