Our History

Juneau Cooperative Christian Ministry, dba The Glory Hall (TGH) was established in 1982 to alleviate the suffering and prevent the deaths of exposure by people suffering from homelessness, hunger, and alcohol dependence on the streets of Juneau. The facility began as a soup kitchen and soon rented a building space. The existing 247 S. Franklin Street building was constructed in 1994. TGH is open every day of the year 24 hours per day. In addition to core TGH services, TGH board and staff recognized the critical need for permanent supportive housing in Juneau, for individuals struggling with addiction issues. In 2015 TGH took a leadership role in creating the Juneau Housing First Collaborative and now operates 64 units of permanent supportive housing (Forget-Me-Not-Manor) with behavioral and medical services provided by SEARHC. The project has been operating and housing some of Juneau’s most vulnerable citizens since 2017. Phase 3 of Forget-Me-Not-Manor will add an additional 28 units and is planned to break ground in the spring of 2024.

In the summer of 2021, TGH moved its operations to a new facility at 8715 Teal St. The facility contains 43 private sleeping spaces as well as 12 overflow spaces, a dining room, storage for patron belongings, a produce garden and a meeting space that can be used by partner agencies to meet with patrons. Currently, TGH Shelter provides the following services in the community: Emergency night shelter, limited case management, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, snacks and other food assistance, day shelter, laundry, showers, clothing, basic necessities, transportation assistance, social service referrals, ID assistance, community outreach, produce garden, advocacy, volunteer opportunities, Juneau Medical Respite program collaboration, grant administration, and 24/7 staffing.

Juneau Cooperative Christian Ministries dba The Glory Hall and Juneau Housing First Collaborative merged in the summer of 2022 to become Juneau Housing First Collaborative dba The Glory Hall. 

Both the Glory Hall Shelter and Forget-Me-Not Manor are funded based on a mix of federal, state, and local grants as well as the incredibly generous support from our community.
Thank you so much!
