Homeless camps in Anchorage

The issue of homelessness and camping in Anchorage has become a major problem. Why has it gotten so bad? Why are people living in these camps? Who are they? What role does alcohol, drugs, and mental health play? What can we do to help solve it? These are the questions we hope to answer by making a short documentary about the issue. Check out our video below.

My side of the story, because I have been homeless. I have seen what people do when someone gives money to these people. Another thing is if they are high or drunk BFS turns them away. Not only that but people don’t want to live with the bed bugs at BFS. Anymore questions I will answer, just ask and I will tell you.
