The Need

Everyday we come face to face with teens and families whose hopes and dreams have been crushed by substance abuse, sexual abuse and exploitation, pornography, eating disorders, self-harm, relational aggression, cyber bullying, and much more.

Life seems unsafe,  loveless, confusing, and hopeless. 

Hope Harbor strives to  restore families through a loving, secure, bible-based and Christ-centered residential program.


Hope Harbor began after our founder personally experienced destruction, and ultimately restoration, in her own family.   On the other side of those hopeless days, she realized others needed options to obtain help.   Life-changing options.  Heart-changing options.  Pointing them to the True Healing.  Restoring the whole family.

the impact

Hope Harbor has provided counseling, education, life skills training, spiritual growth opportunities, and parenting classes to over 70 teen girls and families in our residential program since 2004.

We have served over 65 clients in our non-residential program, over 2000 students and teachers in our school presentations, and over 350 young girls through our community camps.  We offer community classes for teens, parents, and local professionals on a variety of topics.


Hope Harbor resets the course of lives as core behavioral patterns and coping mechanisms are significantly altered and families are reconciled. Those involved develop leadership skills and begin to heal past and present hurts. This transformation makes responsible citizens that are able to make a lasting impact on their world. 

By surrounding our teens with unconditional love, training them in the way they should go, and equipping them with the tools they need for success, we provide them with the opportunity for a future with hope.
