"I have recently met my niece for the first time and learned that her difficult life was made very much safer and happier by love from Harbor House years ago. Thank you for what you do. Never doubt the value of what your connection to these people means in the short term and the long term as well. Love to you all."
"My name is Anthony. I am a former resident at Harbor House not just once but almost a dozen times. I was one of those teens who was always finding new ways to get in trouble. During my first time staying at the shelter back in 1999, I was jumping up and down on the bed throwing glow sticks or setting off the alarms. Even after all the stuff I did, I always had a safe place to stay. All of the staff genuinely cared about the teens' lives they touched. The staff at Harbor House raised me and helped me become the person I am today. I recently completed my GED and am now enrolled in one of the top tier automotive trade schools in Nashville, Tennessee. I want to thank the staff at Harbor House past - and present - you guys made a huge difference in my life and so many others."
