Giving Home, Hope and Healing in 2021 and Beyond | You Can Make an Impact
Dear Friend of Anchor House,

These times continue to be difficult for so many. The need for crisis intervention, stable housing and mental health services continues to grow. 

While the past year and a half brought challenges, Anchor House continues to serve our most vulnerable as the only shelter, transitional living and street outreach programs in the Mercer County area.  

Because of your support, after losing his job and being asked to leave his family home, DC found his first apartment through our Safe Housing program. With the support of staff and a case manager he learned life skills such as budgeting and maintained steady employment and positive relationships.
 
“Anchor House made the transition from being homeless to having a place of my own less stressful and for everything they did I’m extremely grateful.”
 
Your support has been life changing not only for DC but to more than 1,000 individuals and families in need. Our programs help youth and their families minimize any trauma occurred and move out of the cycle of homelessness to greater self-sufficiency.

Services are offered at no charge to any youth in need. Anchor House relies on private support to help fill the gap so youth, young people and their families can succeed and thrive.   

Donors like you help change lives. Please consider making a gift if you can to continue to provide home, hope and healing. Visit our NEW website at www.anchorhousenj.org to learn more about our impact and to make a gift.  

Thank you and best wishes for a safe and warm holiday season!
Kim McNear
Executive Director

November is National Runaway Month and National Homeless Youth Awareness Month
Did You Know? According to Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, one in 10 young adults between the ages of 18 and 25, and at least one in 30 adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 experience some form of homelessness over the course of a year. They may be coach surfing, sleeping on the streets, or staying in shelters. 

Anchor House joins organizations across the county in helping to shine the light on the issues runaway and homeless youth face. We work year round to help homeless youth know they are not invisible and help is available. Pictured here is staff wearing green in recognition of National Runaway Month. #NRPM2021

As always, follow us on Facebook for the latest updates. Look for videos from our youth soon as they share what Anchor House means to them!
