The North Star Community Foundation is 'Passing the Hat' to gain donations to support the FHHC in their mission. The goal of the campaign is $20,000 which will enable two upcoming FHHC events (see below) Through the generosity of the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, Alyeska Pipeline, and Golden Heart Rotary the challenge grant of $10,000 has been established.
Every dollar you donate to the Winter 2017 Pass-The-Hat campaign will be matched by a dollar from the challenge grant.
The Fairbanks Housing and Homeless Coalition (FHHC) is an association of community members and organizations joining forces to eliminate homelessness in the Fairbanks North Star Borough. The 1994 Task Force on Homelessness has grown into a coalition of over 30 agencies providing lifesaving services to Fairbanks’ homeless and at-risk populations that endure the harshest of conditions and a struggling economy. The coalition’s January 2017 Point In Time (PIT) count assessed well over 200 currently homeless individuals in Fairbanks.
