The heartbeat of Hope Harbor is Connection. We utilize Trust-Based Relationship Intervention (TBRI) and other evidence-based practices as we walk with children and families on their journey toward healing. Our foundation, and our history, are tied to the importance of faith and family. Since 1947, Hope Harbor (formerly Turley Children's Home) has been a place where committed donors offer hurting families connection to God and other people. Cottage life is home-like, warm, and safe. Our Residential Life Specialists (house parents) are trained professionals who provide a positive environment for children, and offer the opportunity to try new patterns and behaviors. Our Academy features low student:teacher ratios, the opportunity to connect with teachers, and learn to love learning again, or even for the first time. Our counseling services are provided by licensed mental health professionals, and are evidence-based; our counseling staff are also TBRI practitioners. Every child participates in individual, group, and family counseling. Our program is deeply rooted in family work. We believe the connection to family is among the most important connections in life, and is the foundation of growth and healing. Children do not participate in our program alone-- every family commits to walking this path together, leading to change for the entire family. The first step in our process is to complete the online application, and we will walk with you through the process of determining if our program is the best fit for your family.
"God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in times of trouble." -Psalm 46:1
Don’t live with the pain, struggle, and feelings of failure one second longer than you have to. Envision your family around you, getting along, sharing thoughts, feelings and plans for the future and truly enjoying the time you spend together. God created families. He knew we needed support to cope with the hard things that happen to us. The journey is hard, but it is worth it. Start your family's healing journey today.
HEALING BEGINS WITH YOU!
