Did you know? Over 1,000 people experience homelessness in Anchorage any given night.

You—the Anchorage community—are invited to join Calista Corporation & Subsidiary Employees to donate household items to families and individuals transitioning from homelessness through the Path To Independence program. This provides a path out of homelessness and into a home.

Path To Independence is a pilot program housing individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Anchorage. Calista Corporation is one of many funding partners. The program is organized and operated by Cook Inlet Housing Authority, Weidner Apartment Homes, and Catholic Social Services.

With Calista’s donation match, your simple donation of a toothbrush, a towel, or even a complete basket, will go twice as far in providing a family in Anchorage with the means to get back on their feet and in their own home.
