THE COALITION IN THE COMMUNITY
The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) is a convener around preventing and ending homelessness. ACEH is the lead agency for the Anchorage Continuum of Care, jointly oversees the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) with the statewide Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness, and works to implement the Anchorage community plan to end homelessness Anchored Home. ACEH was formed in 2004, originally named the Anchorage Coalition on Homelessness, and is the only local network of businesses, non-profits, and community members focused on the prevention and elimination of homelessness in Anchorage. ACEH became an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2012 and became its own fiscal agent in July 2013, at that time changing to the current name of the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness. Currently, over 50 organizations are actively engaged in the coalition.
