Please support me my 17th consecutive Anchor House Ride for Runaways and the 44th anniversary of the ride!

The real reason I do this ride every year is because of the mission. Anchor House is helping kids, who live right here in our neighborhoods and who attend our schools. It's also the reason I am honored and proud to serve on both the Anchor House Board of Directors and the Anchor House Foundation Board.

When the Ride for Runaways began more than 40 years ago, it was a way of raising funds for Anchor House to continue its work and raise awareness of that work. Today the ride raises more than a third of the organization’s annual operating costs. Anchor House, which started as a shelter for runaway and abused children in Trenton, has provided a safe harbor for kids with nowhere else to go since 1978. Since then, with the support of the community and the ever-increasing need to help our kids, Anchor House has expanded their programs.

Today Anchor House is a multi-service agency for runaway, homeless, abused, and at-risk youth and their families. Anchor House has committed its efforts to providing comprehensive, life-saving assistance to our most vulnerable population. Anchor House provides a continuum of care for children, youth and young adults between the ages of 12 through 21 who have suffered abuse, neglect, and/or homelessness.
Its services include:
*Anchor House Shelter - an emergency shelter for young people ages 12-17
*The Anchorage - a transitional living program for ages 18-21
*Anchor Link - community outreach for children and youths ages 6-21
*Anchor Line - permanent Apartment Program works with homeless young adults ages 18-21.
*Connecting Youth Program - helps youth ages 14-17 build a support system so they have life-long connections within the community.


As a board member, I can attest that Anchor House is a very well-run organization with very low overhead. The $ raised truly goes to help the kids. Any donation is very much appreciated. Thank you for your support.
