Anchor House Converts Former Trenton Rectory into Shelter for Teens and Young Adults

"An old rectory once owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Trenton has been transformed into a long-term shelter for runaway, abused and neglected teens and young adults who have aged out of the foster system," according to Krystal Knapp of Planet Princeton.

"Anchor House, the Trenton-based non-profit that serves children and teens in the greater Mercer county area and raised a large portion of its funds through an annual 500-mile charity bike ride called the Anchor House Ride for Runaways, has converted the former Saint Peters and Paul rectory on Centre Street into a transitional living facility serving young people who would otherwise be homeless.

The building has been renovated extensively, and will provide housing for up to a dozen teens and young adults, double the number of people the Anchor House program called 'The Anchorage' currently serves."
