ABOUT US

Harbor Hope Center is a private, non-profit organization established to serve individuals and families suffering from homelessness, poverty, hunger, broken homes, drug and alcohol-related problems.

We were created to fill the gap in services and funding that occurred in Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula as larger metropolitan neighbors often received most of the funding for social needs.

In the area between these two cities, the same social and economic problems exist. What didn’t exist: a formal social safety network. This disparity is primarily due to overwhelming need in Tacoma and Bremerton and a lack of organized resources to respond to the growing economic, physical and emotional needs of those in the Peninsula.

These areas suffer from the same social problems as larger metropolitan neighbors—poverty, homelessness, hunger, broken homes, the opioid crises and other drug and alcohol-related problems. Harbor Hope Center has been established to fill the service gap.

Harbor Hope Center is an organization of community members who have come together to better the lives of homeless students and families in the greater Gig Harbor and Kitsap Peninsula area. Our goal is to create a safety network that assists in meeting the growing economic, physical and emotional needs through our five pillars: host home program, mentoring program, food, clothing and transportation assistance.

The organization has purchased a home to provide transitional housing for homeless male students. It has staffed the house with a full-time paid resident advisor. It plans to purchase two additional homes, one for female homeless students and one for young, homeless single parent families.

We need your immediate support to pay for housing and program expenses, operate our weekly mentoring, parenting, transportation and other urgent services and more beds for homeless and at-risk students.
