Introducing Mike Eggleston - New President of Restore One

Your friendship, support and prayers have kept Chris and I afloat as we've sought to see boys and men restored out of the grips of sex trafficking. As you know, the journey of Restore One has not been for the faint of heart and we've continued to see God's faithfulness! No matter how long the Winter, Spring is always on the horizon. Spring is a time for renewal and new beginnings. That has certainly been the theme lately at Restore One and The Anchor House! We feel excited and ready for a new season. We are hiring the remaining staff needed and preparing for final inspections to open The Anchor House. Thank you Jesus! 

Truly, we are grateful for you and we ask that you continue to pray as we prepare to welcome boys into The Anchor House. On Monday, a group of pastors and church friends came to the home to pray over each room. The Spirit was so sweet. As we enter this new season, Chris and I are delighted to announce that our current Board Member, Mike Eggleston, will assume the role of President starting June 1st. Our Board and staff are so excited about Mike's new role. He brings a great deal of experience and leadership to our organization (as noted in his bio below). We put together a short video for you to help you put a face with a name. 

Join us in welcoming him! His email is

Chris and I will continue serving on the Board of Directors and Co-Founders, and will focus our energy on speaking, advocating, training and vision-casting for Restore One. 

Thank you again for your continued support for this very precious mission. Please do not hesitate to call or email with questions about this very important transition - we have been working on it for months to make sure it goes well. 

In Grace and Sincerity,

Anna Marie Smith
