The Downtown Hope Center has been in the news lately, and since the first news story there has been a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation about the Downtown Hope Center and the case. Because we are involved in litigation and because of the laws in Anchorage, we cannot speak openly about this matter at this time. We know this is frustrating especially to the Downtown Hope Center’s friends and we are sorry about that. Information about the case is available at https://www.adflegal.org/detailspages/case-details/the-downtown-soup-kitchen-d-b-a-downtown-hope-center-v.-municipality-of-anchorage. As you know from working with us, the Downtown Hope Center endeavors to treat every person with respect and dignity. We hope to continue to do so, serving the men and women of Anchorage who are in need of our help as we have for the last 30 years.
