Anchor Canadian Reformed Association for the Handicapped
Supporting adults with developmental disabilities, physical, social, emotional and mental impairment.
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 35 residents who reside in five 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.
Each resident has unique gifts with which to serve God and the community. Some residents help with chores inside the home, while others do volunteer work in the neighbourhood. However, most of our residents are employed on a part-time basis. The residents’ lives are enriched by the many volunteers who take the residents on outings and show their love and support.
