Exciting News! - May 4, 2022
Anchorage Children’s Home is excited to announce the groundbreaking and new construction of a new Transitional Living Program facility serving homeless youth ages 16-22 in Bay County, FL. Anchorage has operated the program for over 15 years through a federal grant application process. The former building was destroyed by Hurricane Michael in 2018 and since the destruction, Anchorage has rented a facility in the Springfield area to serve the needs of homeless youth as well as pregnant and parenting homeless teenage mothers and their babies.
Anderson Construction was awarded the bid and the new constructed 7-unit facility will be located at Anchorage’s main office on Lisenby Avenue. Anchorage has provided support to Bay County youth and families for over three decades. The Transitional Living Program provides long term safety, security, life skills, education advancement, prenatal care, parenting skills and employment opportunities to homeless, pregnant and parenting youth ages 16-22.
