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.

Support from our Community








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.

Sponsor gifts to particular programs and are used for identified purposes, such as clothing, recreational activities, books, and resident trips. Anchorage has a wide array of programs and each has a variety of needs on a daily basis. 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.
