Find out how you can get involved with Harbor House and support a survivor of domestic abuse.
When our neighbors in Central Florida decide to flee domestic violence, they face possible injury or death. During this dangerous time, Harbor House makes it possible for survivors to choose safe housing instead of the streets. Because survivors face life or death emergencies, Harbor House never turns anyone away.
During the last 18 months, Harbor House has housed an average of 147 women and children each night . . . with only 51 bunk beds available. That means we have 45 survivors sleeping on cots, air mattresses, and sofas, with no privacy, no private bathroom, and no dignity.
That’s why we’re building a new home. Where every survivor will have their own bed behind a locked bedroom door . . . the privacy & dignity that any one of us would need to heal.
Not only will the new home save lives here in Central Florida, the new home’s design plans will be shared with other domestic abuse organizations to help save lives throughout Florida, the U.S., and the world.
You can save a life by helping build the new home at Harbor House. Some ways your gift will help protect survivors:
$1,000 sponsors one bed, so a child can be tucked into bed safe and sound with new linens the family can take
with them when they leave.
$500 gives the gift of freedom, so a survivor can open the door to new beginnings.
$250 helps purchase commercial-grade refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, and microwaves.
$150 helps buy heavy duty washers and dryers.
$100 sponsors a window pane, which will let the sun shine in on survivors and light the way into their new lives.
Gift of cash, or Wal-Mart gift cards, of any amount help fill the new shared pantry with shelving, a fridge,
a freezer, food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, etc.
