Anchoring Hope of NY, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the charitable purpose of providing opportunities for success and hope for those affected by mental illness and/or addiction and their families through the support and use of unique and unconventional equipment and services. Unconventional treatment and items not covered by insurance are a focus for our organization. Anchoring Hope offers quality of life grants for expenses such as tamper-proof med boxes, emotional support/service animals, treatments, recreational activities, tablet-based monitoring programs that assist with managing medications, and items for daily living. Through these means, Anchoring Hope helps individuals, families, and other stakeholders in New York address the mental health crisis and its devastating effects on our friends, neighbors, and loved ones. Along with assisting people with their health care, we have been working closely with county and state representatives to discuss needed changes related to involuntary psychiatric hospitalizations in the hope of changing the statutory language to include individuals/family choice with regard to a 9:39 facility. We offer Narcan training and kits as we have seen firsthand the effects of this life-saving treatment. Also, we host community activities such as game/craft/paint nights. Near future steps include advocating for/creating additional NAMI and Nar Anon support groups in the local area. Whether it be finding the right support to overcome or finding peace in helping others, Anchoring Hope serves as a mean to heal.
