Amid Cancer Battle, 'Jeopardy!' Host Alex Trebek and Wife Give to Help Open Homeless Housing

(Facebook/Jeopardy!)

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek isn't letting his fight with cancer stop him from helping those in need.

Trebek and his wife just helped open a housing facility for the homeless near his Hollywood neighborhood.

The newly opened "Alex and Jean Trebek Community Room" will offer temporary housing to 25 women and 60 men trying to get back on their feet.

The Trebeks say homelessness happens to ordinary people facing bad circumstances, and they deserve help, not judgment.

"I'm not one of those people who thinks that we can't deal with the homeless near my house because that's bad," the game show host said. "I don't feel that way. I wish more people would react in a positive way to reaching out and trying to help their fellow member of the community."

The facility will allow the homeless to "become folks who we know are human beings and can feel that humanity again," Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said.

The "Alex and Jean Trebek Community Room" is part of "A Bridge Home" program which was started in 2018.

"Bridge housing" provides a temporary location for people experiencing homelessness to become stable again. And residents who move in must find permanent housing before they leave.
