Welcome from the Executive Director:
For 43 years, Anchor House has expanded its territory to impact the lives of children and youth ages birth to 21. What began in 1978, as a need to shelter young people who had runaway has now been expanded to not only provide a shelter but emergency respite care for younger children, a long term placement for our youth aging out of the foster care system, apartment living and street outreach services. The doors of Anchor House have remained opened and our program services have been increased because of the dedicated support of the community. If this is your first ride or you are a veteran rider, we want you to know how invaluable your support is to us — how much our kids so desperately need your support in their lives. You are part of a solution — a solution to help children who are hurting and in need, a solution to stabilize families and a solution to help our young people transition successfully into adulthood. While you are riding or walking, know that your challenge is with a cause and for a purpose — to make a difference in the lives of our children. Thank you for your commitment to helping our kids! ~Kim McNear
