Anchorage looks to eliminate homelessness with help of grant from Amazon CEO

"Anchorage is the most populous city in Alaska, with 294,356 people. Of that population, about 92 families are in the city’s homelessness system at a given time, Aquino told local news station KTUU.

“That number has pretty much stayed the same over the past years,” Aquino told KTUU, as some families have been rehoused while others have become homeless.

Currently, there’s room in the Anchorage rehousing system to serve about 60 families per year."
