NAEH - Implementing a Complex Care Shelter: Opportunities and Lessons Learned

Monday, April 17, 2023
12:00 pm1:30 pm

When COVID-19 forced homeless shelters to reduce capacity, Anchorage providers developed a complex care shelter that was designed for people with serious, chronic conditions and mobility issues. The experience confirmed that smaller, specialized shelters and facilities are the best solution for Anchorage’s homeless response system.
This webinar will share the journey of implementing a complex care shelter. Panelists include:
• Dakota Orm, the Healthcare Integration Director of the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness
• David Rittenberg, Senior Director of Adult Homeless Services with Catholic Social Services-Anchorage
