"Anchor House is a Christian residence for boys that seeks to provide reconciliation, social assimilation, and independence to promote a brighter future."
Anchor House Ministries is a non-profit organization that offers a Christian residence for boys in crisis. The goal of AH is to provide youth centered treatment in a normalized environment. All residents receive a comprehensive assessment from a Mental Health Provider and an assessment of their life skills, behavior and education needs by our Behavioral Health Technicians. These assessments guide the treatment team in developing a plan that will provide each boy with life skills training, behavior planning, an educational plan, and practical community experience. The philosophy of Anchor House is that all treatment should be client driven. This means that we endeavor to enable young men to manage their own behavior, make sound life choices and positive decisions in preparation for reunion with their family, or independence and self-sufficiency. Anchor House believes that if all parties involved, caseworkers, guardians, Anchor House staff, and outside service providers, work together to empower and guide the youth, then that youth will receive the best possible service and outcomes from our program.
