Harbor House is a leader across the nation for the establishment of the Paws for Peace Kennel. Persons seeking safety can now bring their furry family members. Pets are family, kids often have their pets as their greatest confidant, pets offer unconditional love to those whose self esteem and self worth have been shattered. This is a VITAL service that they offer. Saving additional lives (of the furry kind) that other shelters had not thought of before. I thank them for their leadership and ability to think outside the box when it comes to improving the lives of those in our community, pets included!!

A woman out there alone with no where to turn. Harbor House has made it known to most women there is no need to be alone. Harbor House has many programs to offer even if you are not ready to get out but to educate yourself when you become ready, help in the court house for those that can be intimidated with legal documents ,outreach services to learn about the program also resources, referals and support groups. Many women are unaware that they are in an abusive relationship Harbor House is willing to help. It's an amazing place to get help information or just someone to help you out..

Harbor house is a necessary and vital agency that helps to educate, and advocate for women and families, who are at risk, regarding the devestating epidemic that is Domestic Violence. As a clinician in th field of mental health, working specifically with women, I have found Harbor House to be an amazingly uplifting source for my clients who struggle with family violence. One client in particular was able to, not only leave her abuser for good, but also walked away with uplifting connections made with the wonderful ladies in the Harbor house support groups.

As a survivor of domestic violence, long time advocate in the movement and former domestic violence center direcctor I feel that I have unique insights into the operations of Harbor House. This is a dymanic organization that is well managed. I am amazed at how far they stretch a dollar, how much the community supports the organization and most especially the creativity and efficacy of their programs. Harbor House is among the best non profits I have ever seen.

As a professional in the field of domestic violence, I know first hand the innovative approach Harbor House is taking to end domestic abuse. The work they are doing from aggressively seeking out those in the most danger to preventing abuse in the first place is inspiring.
