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 have be established. This allows parents of our supporting churches to have peace of mind when guiding their child to the next phase in their life.

Our homes provide guidance, structure and stability to our residents. While many agencies stress ‘independence’, the focus of the Anchor Association is ‘interdependence’. Our lives can easily deteriorate without support and interaction with others.  We believe that it is vital to keep our residents involved within the local church, and 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.

Anchor Home

Our first home opened its doors in 1986, and is located in Grimsby, Ontario. The home supports eight residents. Although there is a variety in levels of ability, the residents get along well and complement each other.  Our residents receive 24/7 support in activities of daily living. Respite Care is used on a regular basis.

We try to provide as much activity as possible, such as Bible study, crafts, music band, workshop, catechism, bowling, swimming, story hour, library visits, and helping with chores. We cherish the vounteers who help with these programs and outings. Our staff constantly look for new avenues to keep the residents active.

Although things change from time to time, some of our residents work or volunteer at car dealerships, greenhouses and with paper routes.

Twin Oaks

This home was opened in July of 2002 and named after its location on Twin Oaks Crescent in Burlington, Ontario. The home is meant to support three individuals;    zoning restrictions in this city prohibited us from attracting additional residents. They receive the guidance of a mature couple or manager in a homelike atmosphere.

These residents are quite independent, filling their days with employment or volunteer work.
