Harbor House provides a safe place for opportunities, resources, and relationships to be shared so that all families in Oakland can flourish.

Since 1972, Harbor House has faithfully served thousands of families through high quality programs that nurture the heart, soul, mind, and body.  We offer after-school tutoring and enrichment, summer day camps, leadership development, spiritual development, food and clothing distribution, economic development opportunities, and English as a Second Language classes.



“The goal of Harbor House is not to give charity, but to empower the people.”
