Welcome Home

If you've ever been a program participant, volunteer, or staff member at Harbor House, we hope you'll join us on Saturday July 9th for Welcome Home: Harbor House Homecoming! We'll have some outdoor games, tours of Harbor House, and an opportunity to connect with old friends.

This event is free to attend, but dinner will be available for purchase from Portales Taqueria. The owner of Portales Taqueria, Sylvia Del Toro, is a Harbor House alum and will be there cooking up the food! Bring the whole family for a fun summer night with friends.

This will be the culminating event of our 50 Days of Jubilee, which kicked off on May 21st with our Golden Anniversary Celebration. Help us close out these 50 Days with joy and gratitude! To reserve a ticket click here.

Our House to Your Home

On November 7th, we hand-delivered fifty Our House to Your Home boxes to front porches around the Bay Area.

The boxes are filled with activities for families to do at home together as they "travel" to 6 different locations around the world.  Each country highlighted in the box features the immigration story of a child or teen at Harbor House.  Families have an opportunity to read, cook, create, and pray their way through the box to gain a deeper understanding of our families, their cultures, and God's deep love for them.

All fifty boxes "sold out" this first round. We are considering creating a digital version for families to read through. If you didn't get a box, but might like a digital version, let us know!
