Anchor House       Resource ID: 118

     
Category: Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy
Anchor House, Inc. is a multi-service agency for runaway, homeless, abused, and at-risk youth and their families. For the past 35 years, Anchor House has committed its efforts to providing comprehensive, life-saving assistance to our most vulnerable population.

In 1978, a group of concerned citizens founded Anchor House. They used the analogy of a ship dropping its anchor to keep it safe in the storm to visualize the mission of the agency. The anchor is supported by links of its chain, which in turn keep the anchor tied to the ship. The founders understood that life’s circumstances can cause the links of a family’s chain to break down. They created Anchor House as a stabilizing place for runaway, homeless, and abused youth. It is a safe place to rest; wait through the storm while in crisis and a way to move on when the crisis is calmed.
