Lauren at HoMie

Lauren had a great time today with Nick and Ellen from HoMie. This amazing social enterprise use their profits to support young people experiencing homelessness or hardship. There may be some exciting times ahead as we continue to talk about how Anchor and Homie can work together to connect young people and fabulous learning and working opportunities.

Youth Development Services

Due to Anchor’s ongoing growth we have recently separated our former “Child, Youth & Family” team in to two. We are excited to see our “Child and Family Services”, and “Youth Development Services” teams continuing their amazing work throughout our community (along with our “Housing Support Services”, and “Corporate Services” teams, of course!).
For all of our clients, stakeholders and volunteers, not much will change. All of our staff will continue to be awesome, and Case Managers will remain the same. But now we have welcomed a fourth manager to ensure that all of our programs continue to proudly serve our community.

Scoresby Magpies

As the footy season wraps up for another year, we’d love to give one last shout out to our friends at the Scoresby FC! Not only were we the grateful recipients of a donation from their recent Trivia Night, but the club also offers ongoing opportunities to our Foster Carer families. Earlier this year, their initiative to encourage more kids in care arrangements to become a Magpie, was recognised with a community award from Knox City Council. Congrats and thank you to everyone at the club!
