Empowered T

Ocean’s Harbor House provides shelter, support, and services for vulnerable youth, enabling them to unlock their potential by learning skills that empower them to build successful lives, relationships, and futures.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

At Ocean’s Harbor House we share the anguish and fear that the history of racism has caused. For decades, Ocean’s Harbor House has provided a safe haven for all youth, regardless of race, gender, national origin or sexual orientation. We provide a continuum of care and support to help our youth overcome obstacles and recover from prior challenges. However, we realize that we can and must do more. We condemn acts of racism and will continue to educate, advocate and shed light on the beauty that is diversity, while encouraging others to do the same.

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Every society has its protectors of status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.”

The youth we serve often come to us scarred by different types of trauma, including trauma resulting from racism and discrimination. At Ocean’s Harbor House, we pledge to do our best to stand side-by-side with those who are discriminated against, misunderstood, silenced and mistreated. We ask you to unite with us to make our society a better place for us all. The youth of today and tomorrow need our help to keep them safe and empowered.

Ocean’s Harbor House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that provides more than just shelter. Staffed by caring experts, we freely give youth the individualized support they need to begin their healthy, happy, and ultimately successful life’s journey.

Because of generous community donations, support, and involvement, Ocean’s Harbor House provides life assistance for homeless youth or those living in troubled circumstances.

Your financial contribution is a sound investment in building foundations and futures for our region’s youth. All donations are tax-deductible and help us sustain and expand programs, facilities and staff. Please email us at for how your gift can make a difference.

85% of all contributions go directly to serving our youth.

 Each year groups help us with our wish list for our residential programs. They also assist with clean up projects, holiday decorating projects and other special projects that occur in different seasons. Your group can help keep the spirit of home alive. Contact us for a list of seasonal projects.
