Joni’s Story

A former foster care youth, Joni* was homeless and living in her car until it got towed. Joni began couch surfing and finally thought she could stay at a friend’s house, but the friend’s mental health issues forced her to find a safe place to live. Joni ended up at the Anchorage Transitional Living Program and credits the program with helping her get back on her feet, become stable, learn how to budget, and start college.

According to Joni, “Anchorage was not a HOUSE, it was a HOME. In 2008 I lost my mother and the staff was there for me 1000%. They were not only support at home, they attended my mom’s funeral and people I grew up with my whole life were not even there to support me….I am blessed beyond words to be a part of Anchor House.” Joni transitioned to the Anchor Line Apartment Program, graduated from college, continues with steady employment and now wants to get her master’s in social work. She would like to run a nonprofit for homeless mothers and their children who may have medical issues that prevent them from receiving services from other agencies.
