Harbor House hopes to contribute to the building of a just community where all people are included. It sees all human beings as worthy of its time and its efforts. It offers referrals, resources, case management, and a hand-up for those who are struggling. Its goal is to help all people in our community find hope, gainful employment, affordable housing, and a sense of personal well-being. The needs in our community are great and the gap between the comfortable and the working poor has never been so wide. Housing costs soar and minimum wage remains insignificant in the face of such costs, making it almost impossible for some families and individuals to make a real living.
Harbor House has been formed to address the needs of the Conejo Valley community. The houses of faith guide Harbor House with wisdom. Local donations are used for local needs. It has a deep desire to serve the poor and knows them by name.
"I believe that homelessness is the human rights issue of our time. I believe our children's children will read about this issue in their history books, and I want to be able to answer honestly when they ask me, "What did you do?" -Diane Cortes, Exec. Dir. of Harbor House
