Serving the Greater Houston Metropolitan Area, Boys & Girls Harbor is a 501(c)(3) non-profit home that welcomes children in need regardless of race, creed, color or financial status. Harbor facilities are licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
Not surprisingly, the perspectives of the children served by Boys & Girls Harbor are varied. Some have known nothing but abuse, others nothing but neglect or abandonment. Boys & Girls Harbor programs and supports are designed to help children and youth from any situation or background, and let them experience the life they deserve – one filled with love and care not hurt and anger.
The true essence of life at the Harbor is children living in a family-style environment with house parents. This sense of security results in positive behavior. This family life also provides the campus with a strong sense of community.
