What is Eagle Crest?
The Salvation Army's Eagle Crest is a Transitional Housing Program that provides low-cost lodging for up to 76 guests in single, shared, or dormitory rooms. Eagle Crest offers a safe, alcohol and substance-free living environment for its guests. As the facility is designed to promote an independent lifestyle, guests are responsible for providing and preparing their own meals in the shared kitchen.
The Salvation Army Eagle Crest opened in 1985. Originally a hotel located at the end of Merrill Field the building was moved to make way for runway expansion. The city deeded the former hotel to the Salvation Army in order to meet the need for low-cost, safe lodging in Anchorage.

What our guests say-
"...I just wanted to tell you that during my stay at Eagle Crest, I appreciated the hospitality, friendship and professionalism of you and your staff. When I was there I looked forward to coming "home" because I knew that there would be a smiling face, someone to talk to, and always a hot cup of coffee…. You all helped me through a bad time in my life ...showing me respect throughout my stay in ‘one of the best places I've had the opportunity to lay my head.’..."
