How You can help
It is the central belief of Anchorage Cares that generosity better serves panhandlers when directed towards the agencies that assist these individuals. Real change – not spare change – is the best way to help out panhandlers.
Below is a list of some of the agencies providing real change in people’s lives. These partners in the Anchorage Cares program work to make a real difference in people’s lives, and all provide opportunities to help by volunteering or contributing.
