About this organization






Anchor House is a Christian residence for boys and girls that seeks to provide reconciliation, social assimilation, and independence to promote a brighter future.


Anchor House Ministries houses up to 30 boys ages 10-18. The 10 acre campus provides a safe setting for their development. Education plans are individualized to allow for each child to reach his best possible potential. Anchor House endeavors to allow each young man to manage his own behavior, make sound life choices and make positive decisions in an effort to return to his own family setting or on to independent living. Barnabas Houses provide the boys, when they reach age 18, a transitional place to live as they prepare for living on their own. Catherine House provides the same service to girls who reach 18 and come out of the foster system.
