Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry's goals include:

1. Support and empower children, teens, and adults who are struggling with everyday mental health issues/problems.

2. Support and strengthen couples and families who are struggling with challenging circumstances and experiences, such as a loss of a loved one, relationship problems, and trauma.

3. Create and sustain safe and conducive spaces for populations in need to meet, connect, learn, and build trusting support networks with peers facing similar challenges.

4. Support and empower students who are struggling in grades K-12 to become more confident and independent learners.

5. Support and empower parents to use effective strategies and skills in order to foster stronger and healthier youth.

6. Ensure all community members have access to needed mental health and educational programs and services regardless of financial resources.

Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry accomplishes these goals by:

1. Increasing community awareness of the organization and the availability of mental health and educational programs and services locally through outreach to schools, churches, social media networks, and neighborhoods/communities.

2. Strengthening core programs and services by adding new specialities and components (e.g., play therapy counseling for young children).

3. Creating new therapeutic support groups (e.g., group for parents of children with ADHD) and expanding existing support groups (e.g., group for single mothers and their children) based on local needs and demands for programs and services.

4. Providing community educational presentations and workshops addressing parenting and mental health issues and strategies.

5. Targeting program/service expansions at local communities that are under-resourced and/or isolated from existing offerings by gaps in transportation and affordability.

6. Growing sliding-scale programs for clients who are uninsured, under-insured, or facing significant financial hardships through grants, special events, and other charitable contributions.

Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry is a team of licensed and experienced professionals committed to serving community members and families of all faiths and backgrounds. Our approach integrates emotional, relational, and spiritual healing with a focus on building stronger families and healthier communities.

Our mental health services are provided by Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists. Our academic services are provided by certified teachers, experienced classroom educators and skilled volunteers.

Since 1966, Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry has supported mental health and educational needs in our community.

Each year Anchorpoint delivers 7,600+ counseling sessions, 1,200+ tutoring/mentoring hours, and 70+ therapeutic support group sessions and workshops. Anchorpoint's continued growth is fueled in part by charitably funded programs serving community members who are uninsured, under-insured, or under-resourced. Grants and donations are used to help subsidize more than 3,300 individual, family, and group counseling sessions as well as all tutoring/mentoring sessions annually. Anchorpoint is continuously exploring new opportunities and partnerships to enhance programs/services and extend its reach/impacts to communities and population groups in need.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
