Homeless in Ketchikan

What I would like to know is what agency can help those who've been homeless and living from couch to couch with their children? There are people like me who have gone through the agencies here in town for help in getting an overpriced apartment only to get kicked out a couple months later. What can Ketchikan do to help all the families that need the help now in getting an apartment or housing?

There are many families that cannot keep their apartments or housing because there is a lack of help. Yes, there are a few agencies that are there - but don't help. There are a number of families getting housing then shortly having to abandon them due to lack of help. The number of homeless families is increasing every year. When families go homeless, there are not any options to finding a place to stay.
