Small and Mighty: Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry
The Pittsburgh Foundation, through its Small and Mighty initiative, awarded $6,760 in 2018 to Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry. Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry, founded in 1966, is a non-denominational nonprofit for individuals and families across northern Allegheny and southern Butler counties.
The Small and Mighty grants program, an outcome of the Foundation’s 100 Percent Pittsburgh organizing principle, which seeks to ensure that Pittsburghers living at or near the federal poverty line are provided opportunities to improve their life prospects by working in the region’s improved economy.
Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry has an annual operating budget of $492,750.
Its mission is to assist residents with gaining access to mental health services and educational resources for both students and families. The grant will help Anchorpoint launch a Single Moms Care group in Bellevue. The group provides a therapeutic and educational space to support the mental health and wellness of 10 to 15 single mothers. The program will also provide family meals and child care.
The Small and Mighty grants program has, as of Dec. 2019, awarded $1.25 million to nonprofit organizations with budgets of less than $600,000.
