F.A.I.T.H (Finding Alternatives In Treating Homelessness) 

The FAITH (Finding Alternatives In Treating Homelessness) Program is innovative in its approach to the care and rehabilitation of homeless veterans because of its focus on sustained employment as the means to end hopelessness. The program utilizes a case management approach which directly assists homeless veterans, as well as provides critical linkages to a variety of supportive services available in the Fairbanks and outlying communities. It focuses on meaningful job placements to help with job retention and includes follow up efforts to ensure that those who find employment and housing have the resources they need to avoid returning to homelessness.
