Our 2018- 2021 Strategic Plan acknowledges the ongoing need for safe, nurturing homes for children and young people throughout our community.

Anchor is proud to be part of the Brighter Futures program, with our Community Connectors building networks to support young people leaving care.  Our Youth Development and Child & Family teams continue to support local individuals and families, working together to achieve the best outcomes.

We are still seeing a need for carers, with boys aged 10+ being over-represented in those children that can’t be placed in safe homes. If you would like to learn more about how you can help, please check out our website: http://www.anchor.org.au/become-a-carer/

Housing Support strategic goal update

We are now well into our first year of Anchor’s 2018- 2021 Strategic Plan!

Our Tiny Homes Australia project, the Rapid Response program (in conjunction with Yarra Ranges Council) and supporting Stable One, are all examples of our commitment to being a catalyst for the development of housing for vulnerable people.
Our community continues to feel the effects of limited social and affordable housing. We know that more people than ever don’t have a safe and stable place to live.
We’re looking forward to continuing our work with other organisations, businesses and individuals to find solutions to the current housing crisis.

Youth Ambassadors wanted!

Brighter Futures is an exciting initiative supporting young people with an Out-of-Home care experience. We are looking for Youth Ambassadors to share their positive leaving-care stories and help us improve the care system.

Homelessness increasing (2016 Census)

We know that these numbers keep growing. More people than ever are experiencing homelessness.

Victoria’s housing crisis (including a lack of safe, affordable accommodation) and family violence are the top causes of homelessness.
To learn more, check out VincentCare‘s research that helps break down some of the housing challenges facing our communities (https://vincentcare.org.au/…/housing-hom…/about-homelessness).

Tiny Homes launch in 2019

2019 is going to be the year that we launch our Tiny Homes to help address the local housing crisis!

We are receiving great support from a number of businesses, but we still have a way to go to deliver these homes. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to get these homes built sooner, please head to our website: http://www.anchor.org.au/tiny-homes-homeless/
