Downtown Hope Center provides services to the homeless of Anchorage.

We are open 7 days a week providing the only single women's shelter in Anchorage. Women are provided with a healthy warm dinner provided daily by our Culinary Arts students. The women are offered a chance to join Feed Me Hope Bakery to learn a marketable job skill.
