Providence Alaska House is a Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) project designed to address the needs of elders with significant health conditions who are experiencing homelessness.
Located at 4900 Eagle St. in Anchorage, this project is the first phase of a multi-year development. This first phase consists of a single three-story residential building containing 50 studio units, including a residential manager’s unit.
The building has a support space for social services such as case management consult rooms. Additional spaces include a reception area, administrative and service provider offices, exam rooms, and a computer lab area. A common laundry area and common gathering spaces will also be included for residents in the building.
Future development phases contemplated on the 4-acre parcel owned by Providence include a similar 50-unit PSH building, outdoor amenity spaces for residents, and parking. Total development budget for this first phase 50-unit PSH project is $15.1 million.
In addition to creating supportive housing, the project creates new partnerships between Anchorage’s three major hospitals by coordinating housing placements for homeless seniors who rely on frequent hospitalizations for health care and social supports.
