Cook Inlet Tribal Council and Covenant House Alaska (CHA) have partnered to increase housing in Anchorage for transitional age youth who are at-risk or homeless.
The partnership will expand CHA’s Rights of Passage transitional living program through the Dena’ina House, a newly renovated residential facility at 750 W. Fifth Avenue in Anchorage.
Through a $2.4 million renovation, the Dena’ina House offers supportive housing for young people seeking independent living through the Rights of Passage program serving homeless youth ages 18-21.
The model requires participants to work with a case manager to craft a “success plan,” and participants are required to hold jobs, pay rent, save money, learn to budget and develop other life skills needed for living independently.
