On any given night up to 20 youth, ages
10-17 years old, are kept off the streets through our crisis
shelter, Hidle House.
In Hidle, we focus on providing safe
shelter while working with youth to resolve immediate family
problems. Often these youth and their families need short-term
cooling off periods, up to 21 days. Other youth are placed as a
result of abuse, neglect or abandonment for up to 30 days.

private individuals is critical to our ability to continue to be
an Anchor for today's children and strengthen tomorrow's
families. We need your help through financial support to the

Sponsorship gifts are meant to direct funds to specific programs
or needs of interest to the donor. To Anchorage, the intent of
the donor is the key in stewarding designated gifts. Our
development staff members review the needs of the program and
intent of the donor prior to the acceptance of any designated
gift to ensure an appropriate fit.
