Serving the most vulnerable, at their most helpless time.
When most people leave a hospital or acute care center, they have a home to go to and family or friends to help take care of them when they need it. They have rides to follow-up appointments like checkups, lab tests, and physical therapy. They have people to help them along on their journey back to good health.
But on the streets, this support simply does not exist. For people experiencing homelessness, healing fully from an injury or illness is more than a challenge — it can be a life-and-death situation. That’s where Harbor Care Center steps in.
We provide residential care for people who are recovering from illness or injury whose condition would be worsened by living on the streets.
A safe place to land. A perfect place to launch.
Our 30-bed shelter located in Mission Hills, CA is an ideal setting for Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley based patients to recover, while connecting them to vital services and permanent supportive housing.
Real Patients. Real Stories. Real Care.

Join us as we confront homelessness head-on with a compassionate, individual approach. A changed life often begins with a meal! Many of our residents come to us malnourished and haven’t had a good, healthy meal in a long time. Sitting down to a hot meal, made from scratch and served with love, makes them feel right at home.
