11. Anchor Home For Boys in Texas – United States
A preacher named Lester Roloff created boarding schools for young boys and girls. The one for boys was named Anchor home. They were forced out of Texas when the police wanted to inspect the school and some claim that they exist today after being forced to run from Montana too.
Teenagers living at the Anchor home do know about paddling. Corporal punishment was their breakfast. Isolation rooms with loudspeakers running 24/7 prayers was their lunch. Leftovers from good people in the neighborhood became their dinner. The school work was church inspired and difficult to get credits for if they wanted to study after they were released.
Lester Roloff died when his plane crashed. Riding with him was a lot of young girls who traveled with him and sang for those who wanted to hear him talk. It is not known if they provided other services to him. After his death many of the employees started their own schools inspired by his teaching. Unfortunately many are still in existence.
