Programs: Residents of Harbor House benefit from the structure of living in a disciplined family environment.

Academics are addressed through available in-house high school; junior high and high school equivalency courses while the girls remain enrolled in their current school (if any). They are also taught life skills like cooking and food management, housekeeping, laundry and clothing care, and budgeting.

Counseling takes place moment-by-moment and attempts to teach the girls to make decisions based on how they positively affect others (using Biblical principles).

Depending on the girl's plan for her baby, she is either involved in preparation for parenting ("Baby Bootie Camp," Lamaze breathing, parenting classes) or preparation for adoption (pre- and post-adoption counseling, and adoptive family selection and relationship building).

Mission:
Harbor House is a non-denominational Christian outreach that provides housing to pregnant girls ages 10 to 19. The girls live with house parents in a family setting that employs Biblical principles of love, counsel and discipline. The programming is intended to help them to make mature and informed decisions for themselves and their future as well as for their baby. While living in the home they continue their high school education, take part in church activities and Bible studies that are directed toward youth, and work on developing parenting and independent living skills.
