Funding Needs

Harbor House Ministries is raising funds for the new Activity Center. This building is a 6,100 square feet and will house a multi-purpose gym for gross motor skills activities, a sensory room, an aqua-therapy room, and an exercise room for balance and range of motion activities.  Harbor House hopes to construct the building 100% debt-free with funds raised in the community, to ensure the organization's long-term sustainability.  By raising funds for capital expenses, all government monies can be focused solely on the care for the individuals.
