Homes

We make many transitions in life. Normally we finish our schooling, seek employment and at some point in our lives, we leave our parental homes. For parents who have a child with a disability, these transitions can be very difficult, especially to know when it is time for a child to move out of the house. The Lord has blessed the Anchor Association and five group homes could be opened. This allows parents of our supporting churches to have peace of mind when guiding their child to the next phase in their life.

While many agencies stress ‘independence’ the focus of the Anchor Association is ‘interdependence’. Our lives can easily deteriorate without support and interaction with others. Our homes focus on guidance, structure and stability. Motivation is often a key ingredient. We believe that it is vital to keep our residents involved within the local church. We also want our residents to be an integral part of the community.

Enrolment in our homes is open to children of parents, relatives and guardians who are members of the Association. Any other enrolment is subject to the review and approval of the board of directors of the Association. Applicants will have reached the age of eighteen. As a small organization we have limitations. Admission to our homes will depend on availability and suitability as each new resident affects the well-being of others within a home.

A prime care community residence, located in Beamsville, ON. Residents receive 24/7 support in activities of daily living. The home opened its doors in 1986, supporting eight residents with a variety of needs.

Although things change from time to time, some of our residents currently work in various positions, at locations such as, car dealerships, food delivery trucks, paper routes, and in greenhouses . Some residents stay at home. We try to provide as much activity as possible, from morning bible study, crafts, men society, band, workshop, catechism, Bible class, bowling, swimming, story hour, library visits, helping with chores etc.

Our staff constantly look for new avenues to keep the residents active. Although there is variety in levels of ability, the residents get along well and complement each other. One of the residents uses a wheelchair and therefore we have a wheelchair van.

We provide staffing 24/7. We have two staff on, day and night. We also heavily depend on volunteers for evening programs and outings.
