We are a 12-month residential ministry for women seeking to overcome addiction and other life issues. Located in Crawfordsville, IN, 4 Anchors Women’s Ministries, Inc. was established in September 2019; after transitioning from Half Way Home, Inc., established in May 2014. The co-founders retired in January 2019, at which time the organization was turned over to Dana Cook, Executive Director. In March 2019, Board Members unanimously voted to become a Christ-centered organization and mission.
4 Anchors utilizes Biblically-based teaching and approach to provide a foundation of truth to educate and strengthen women so that they may flourish in spirit, soul, and body.
Those accepted into the women’s ministry are provided with housing, addictions education, life skills, and employment support, counseling, mentoring, and life transformation assistance while being paired into local churches for sustaining support after completion. We will support them in learning how to thrive as women in the various roles and relationships that are important in their lives. Services are provided based on availability and without regard to financial status, insurance, creed, national origin, race, or religion.
At this time, all participants must work to the best of their ability for the duration of the program to cover the current program fees of $180 per week. As we grow, we believe that our ministry will continue to gain support from generous donors so that work will not be a mandatory component for all 12 months. This period of unemployment will allow for a structured and focused time of inner healing and rest as each woman spends time developing an understanding of Biblical truths and their identity in Christ.
We are dedicated to Christian development, discipleship, and fellowship. We partner with the Holy Spirit in the reconciliation of souls, families, and relationships with God, and we exist to serve women struggling with addiction and other life areas that prevent them from walking in their true identity and purpose. We desire to see them thriving in an engaged and meaningful life within their family and community.
