Anchor House is in the process of opening Anchor House-Angel Division, a transitional living center for women who have been through treatment and need a safe environment in which to live.
The organization’s new facility is located in Obion County and is being opened in the same location as an established assisted living dwelling, which currently has space for two additional elderly residents.
The Angel House will need bunk beds; single bed bedding; pillows; women’s robes; used or new clothing for women; food items; a van to transport residents to meetings; funds and assistance with sanding, painting and finishing three rooms in the home, completing underpinning and adding two toilets; and help in moving some large items into the home.
