Hope Harbor is a volunteer placement first sought by the teen or the teen's guardian, with the teen part of the entire admission process. Teens involved in the legal system or referred by probation, social services, or other facilities may be considered for admission, with the same family participation requirements.
Placement at Hope Harbor is a commitment on the part of both the teen and the entire family. We are not a quick fix or crisis intervention, and with expected program duration of one year, it is important that each family carefully consider the requirements and expectations of Hope Harbor prior to admission.
Admissions process is generally as follows:
- Initial Inquiry (via email or telephone)
- Telephone Interview between guardian(s) and intake staff
- Submission of Admission Application, Release of Information and Application Fee (click to submit each of these items online)
-Application fee is $150 (applicable to account if placement occurs) and does not guarantee interview or intake.
-Upon review of application, an on-site family interview may be scheduled for parent(s)/guardian(s) and teen. Placement will not occur the day of the interview and interview does not guarantee placement.
Families will be notified within 3 business days of interview as to placement decision.
