Name: Anchor Canadian Reformed Association for the Handicapped
Services: Supporting adults with developmental disabilities, physical, social, emotional and mental impairment.
Focus group: Individuals with disabilities in the Reformed Christian Churches
The basis of the organization is Holy Scripture, as summarized in the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dort.
The Anchor Association serves adults with a developmental disability. At this moment we serve 34 residents who reside in 5 group homes in southern Ontario. Our support comes mainly from the Canadian Reformed and United Reformed churches, combined with membership fees and corporate donations. We are not funded by the provincial government which allows us to maintain our identity as Reformed, Christian Homes. Admission to our homes is restricted to families from the supporting churches as outlined in the by-laws.
Most of our residents are employed on a part time basis in the community, others volunteer, and others yet are kept busy within the homes. We rely on many volunteers to enrich the lives of our residents and we covet the support and prayers of the communion of saints. Each resident also has unique gifts with which to serve God. Together we serve one another and provide for those who are in need of support.
