our program

Hope Harbor offers an immersive family reconciliation program designed to give your family the tools and support you need to navigate the storm, so you can enjoy peace and hope in your home. Hope Harbor serves adolescents and their families in our comprehensive residential program which is built on a foundation of faith and excellence.


  • Cottage Life: Six youth live with each of our Residential Life Specialist couples. The cottage life is structured, consistent, trauma-responsive and faith-based. Our Growing in Character model encourages character development while providing opportunities to practice new skills and develop new patterns of behavior. Residents work through our self-paced Growing in Character model over a period of nine months to two years.


  • Hope Harbor Academy: All residents attend Hope Harbor Academy, our high quality accredited on-site school. Hope Harbor Academy provides responsive individualized instruction with low teacher:student ratios, allowing our residents the opportunity to remedy academic deficits with our certified teachers.


  • Quality Counseling: All residents participate in individual, group and family counseling provided by our highly trained staff of Licensed Professional Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists. Our consistent in-depth counseling allows residents to successfully work through past difficulties and current struggles while gaining the skills needed to navigate life and relationships. All interventions at Hope Harbor are evidence based. Counseling is directed toward individual and family successes with the ultimate goal of family reconciliation.


  • Intentional Hope: During the resident's time with us, parents/guardians remain actively involved with regular USPS mail, phone calls, and pass time, and remain responsible meeting their child’s medical and personal needs. Simultaneously, parents/guardians participate in family counseling, parent workshops and our Intentional Hope program. Intentional Hope is the family’s part of the work, an intensive program addressing parenting, family dynamics, vision development, and creating new patterns, which helps prepare the home environment for a successful reconciliation.


  • Aftercare: Hope Harbor offers an Aftercare program for all of our graduates. We keep in touch for three years after graduation, and longer if the family desires, to track outcomes and offer case management and counseling as needed.
