Provide-a-Home Program

The Provide-a-Home Program includes two categories of homes: Youth Shelters for 18-24 year-olds and Host Homes which can also accommodate minors.

Youth Shelters

Harbor Hope Center of Washington currently operates two youth shelters providing emergency housing for youth, 18-24. Each youth shelter includes six beds in a home environment.


Trained Youth Advisors provide supervision, leadership, and education to residents. The goal is to transition youth into stable, independent living.


All youth entering the program receive a drug assessment and attend a weekly group support meeting. They also receive the book, 90 Days to Success, and read and review one chapter each week.


It costs approximately $2,000 per month to provide 24/7 care for each youth at the shelters. Your donation will make a meaningful difference in their lives.

Host Home

The Host Home Program serves youth ages 16-24 who are experiencing homelessness. It matches them with an individual or family willing to provide a home and other support.


A typical host home is a private home with a compassionate person or family who wants to make a difference in the life of a young person. An extensive intake procedure and background check is conducted on all host home providers and candidates to assure a safe environment for the student and host(s).


Training is provided to Host Home providers to assist them in integrating students into the family. Harbor Hope Center of Washington closely follows State of Washington guidelines for host home programs.
