Mission

Loving our neighbors, near and far.

Anchor House

St. John’s provides and maintains low-cost housing to long-term medical patients from outside the Houston area. The name “Anchor House” was chosen because St. John’s wanted the apartment to be the patient’s home-away-from-home.

We have completed 8 garden beds and our gardeners are planting summer vegetables. Our group now includes ~15 gardeners. We hope to continue to expand our garden in the near future by adding more garden beds, inviting PCHAS residents to participate and eventually adding a prayer area near the garden. Come and see our garden grow!
