Welcome to the Statewide Homeless Housing Office!
The role of the Statewide Housing Homeless Office is to serve as a single point of contact for nonprofit and supportive housing providers regarding funding, technical and counseling assistance, data collection, best practice sharing, as well as connect those who are homeless with referrals to our community partners when appropriate.
The Statewide Homeless Housing Office is open to all Alaskans. It is supported by multiple staff within AHFC, and its activities are coordinated by Jennifer Smerud. Contact us at 907-330-8255 (833-330-8255 toll-free outside of Anchorage) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For assistance with AHFC’s rental programs, contact the Public Housing office at (907) 330-6100.
For immediate assistance if you are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, call 2-1-1 or 800-478-2221. It’s the key for connecting you with many resources. The service is available by phone Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm or 24/7 online at www.alaska211.org.
2-1-1 is provided by United Way of Alaska and is free and confidential.
