The Harbor teen shelter has a new kitchen thanks to a $20,000 grant from the Community Foundation of St. Clair County.
Hale Walker, a member of the foundation’s grant committee, said the passion of The Harbor’s program director Sally Currie put its application over the top.
“I believe we can prevent kids from becoming involved in the system,” Currie said. “I don’t want to see kids go through the system.”
The Harbor provides housing, counseling and other services for young people ages nine through 17. The kids may be homeless, on the verge of homelessness, have a bad falling out with a parent or some other issue. The Harbor has room for 10 residents at its 929 Pine St. location, with stays limited to three weeks. About 100 kids per year have gone through The Harbor since it opened in the spring of 1978.
Lisa Fecteau talks to Sue Rutkofske about The Harbor’s mission helping at-risk, runaway, and homeless youth in our community.
Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is a nationally recognized week where people who are able try to bring awareness to people who are homeless and or food insecure and help them.
To go along with the $7,500 that was granted to Comprehensive Youth Services, this year the Community Foundation donated the entire youth home to the organization.
