We understand that it’s not your fault, and the world when you are unprepared is indeed dark, cold and loud.

Harbor House, an IRS certified 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, staffed by caring experts, provides you with more than shelter. We freely give you the full, individualized support you need to begin your healthy, happy and ultimately successful life’s journey.

Through generous community donations and involvement, Harbor House provides life assistance for homeless youth or those living in troubled circumstances. Please explore our site and contact us with any questions.
