How to Help

You can help homeless and hurting people find healing and purpose.

When someone experiencing homelessness suffers an injury or illness serious enough to warrant a hospital stay, they face a defining moment. They have likely lost hold of all their belongings and their park bench or tent on the sidewalk may have already been claimed by others.

Being in the hospital is a time filled with fear, pain, and deep loneliness. Getting discharged from the hospital can be even more frightening than being in it. Where will they go? How will they get their wounds clean? Who will take them to their follow-up doctor appointments? When will they be able to stand on their own two feet again?

Most homeless shelters are not equipped to take in people who are still recovering from injuries or illnesses.

Volunteer at Harbor Care!

Even a little time can make a huge impact.

If you have a heart for the homeless and some time to give, we need you. Harbor Care has a variety of different volunteer opportunities to fit your talents, interests, and energy.

You can provide a safe place to recover and save lives.

With your support, we can welcome homeless people who are at the most vulnerable time in their life and give them a safe place to heal.

Your gift provides more than food and shelter.

Our residents are served healthy, medically tailored meals prepared by a professional chef to give them the proper nutrition they need to speed up the healing process.

They sleep comfortably on adjustable hospital beds and utilize ADA-accessible bathrooms and showers.

Every resident receives medical care from our onsite medical clinic partner and is provided with rides to their appointments. We monitor their vital signs daily, safely store their medications, and provide them with reminders to take their medicines.

Let’s get them housed!

In 2023, we were able to find housing for 81% of the residents who completed their full length of stay with us. It’s all about making the right connections. We help each resident make connections through faith, family, and service providers to give them a sense of purpose and stability in their lives. This leads to employment and housing for many of the residents we serve.

We can’t do this without you.

Much of the next level quality of care we provide is not reimbursed by hospitals or Medi-Cal plans. We depend on the support from our community to change the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors.

A gift of $50 will help cover prescription copayments for a needy resident.

A gift of $75 will provide shoes and clothing to someone who comes to us with only the clothes on their backs.

A gift of $100 will go toward the purchase of a bus or plane ticket to reunite a resident with their family.

A gift of $200 will help a resident with a security deposit and household items for their new housing.
