Anchor House Update - May Edition
Congratulations to Rutgers University Graduate
It's graduation season and Anchor House is so proud of our young adults who are graduating from college. Zena, a past program participant, graduated from Rutgers University in Camden with a bachelor's degree in political science and a minor in video production.

Zena attended college with the support of The Cory Colis,"Big Jim & Zooma" and the Doug McCune Award educational scholarships. These scholarships were created by generous and caring individuals to support Anchor House youth in attaining their post secondary education

Zena is very talented and has helped Anchor House with a few video production projects. Congratulations, Zena, on your accomplishment and hard work and we can't wait to see what you do next!

Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month! Anchor House stands with our youth, young people and the millions of individuals impacted by mental illness. Our team works to help combat stigma associated with mental health challenges by helping individuals seek treatment, talk openly, show compassion and educate others.

If you are following along with us on Facebook you may have seen our Mental Health Matters Initiative highlighting our new Equine Therapy Program funded through the Zonta Club of Trenton/Mercer County. In addition to traditional therapy, we integrate art, music, yoga and other forms of care to strengthen overall well being.

We encourage you to join us in raising your voice to help stand up to stigma. Here are more ways to Fight Mental Health Stigma
