Anchor Point’s desire is to help children, individuals, and families in the greater Clear Lake area to find HOPE amidst some of today’s most challenging situations: raising children with difficult backgrounds, the crisis of an unplanned pregnancy and recovery from sexual abuse and abortion.

We do that through providing:

* Crisis counseling/intervention around a pregnancy
* Confidential pregnancy testing/ultrasound services
* Education and Case Management with our pregnancy center clients
* Recovery groups for post abortion and sexual abuse recovery
* Community education through our Discover Adoption courses
* Our Pathway to Hope camp for families with kids from difficult backgrounds

Our ultimate goal is for each of these individuals to not only survive in this life but to THRIVE
