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.

While Anchorage Children's Home does obtain federal and state funding through grants and contracts to serve at-risk and abused, neglected and abandoned children; these funding sources frequently require private matching funds and do not provide enough support to pay for the total cost of essential services. The generous financial support by our community partners and 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 Anchorage Children’s Home Foundation which provides the private funds necessary to effectively run the programs of Anchorage Children’s Home.
