A Roof is a yearlong project from 360 North and KTOO Public Media examining homelessness and affordable housing in Alaska.
No matter where you live, whether it’s Anchorage, a smaller community on the road system, or in the Bush, the cost and availability of housing affects you.
Then there are the thousands of Alaskans who don’t have any place to call home. There are a number of issues that lead to homelessness and trying to understand and explain them will be part of our challenge as we move forward with “The Roof.”
- A man who was shot by a Juneau police officer was medevaced to Seattle and is expected to live. The police, the Department of Law and the Alaska Bureau of Investigation are trying to determine why lethal force was used.
