Abstract
To show the changes over time of the rapidly increasing homeless population, the Municipality of Anchorage conducted a survey in 1992. This survey replicated Kelso et al. (1978). 310 homeless individuals were interviewed across 9 sites. Sampling was proportionately stratified by sex and location. There were no significant differences across the two studies in marital status, gender, employment status, and substance abuse. There were recent increases in the number of whites, blacks, number of recent arrivals, use of agencies for shelter rather than residential hotels, and low income. Therefore, the current homeless population is more mobile, poorer, and more dependent upon social agencies.

Over a three-month period, the Special Committee developed a framework with local leaders that recognize and work within Anchorage?s rich multi-cultural community.

Abstract
The new state of Alaska hopes to announce the completion of its first state mental hospital sometime in 1960. The six-and-a-half-million-dollar structure, to be built in two stages, will be located four miles from the center of the city of Anchorage. Its function will be to serve as an integral part of the total mental health program in which the social forces in the community will be utilized to the maximum by means of mental health clinics where early treatment will be instituted and hospitalization prevented.
