                                The Glory Hall is currently the only source for a meal for many Juneau residents experiencing homelessness, June 25, 2020. Executive Director Mariya Lovishchuk said that this is leading to friction with downtown residents and businesses, and she supports the Juneau Cares program, a program that pays local restaurants to help feed the homeless or food-insecure.

Program to feed hungry, fund restaurants trudging toward reality

The program could inject up to $1 million into local restaurants while feeding the most vulnerable.

 

Hands-on care: Homeless receive haircuts, food, help at community event

More than 200 people experiencing homelessness received care today.
