shelter & transitional housing for homeless youth
Homelessness is hard, no matter where you come from. But for youth struggling to get by in the suburbs, lack of public transportation, stigma, and few resources deepen an already difficult situation. Where do you go and who do you ask for help when your community doesn't recognize your struggles?
The Harbour is a 501(c)3 organization providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, and supportive services to homeless youth ages 12-21 in the north and northwest Chicago suburbs. We are committed to offering services rooted in the belief that youth must have their basic needs met before they can begin to build a promising future for themselves.
For over 40 years, The Harbour has been there to offer safe, stable housing to these youth and provide parenting that may be absent in their own lives. Thousands of youth have passed through our doors who were deflected from homelessness and are now living independently.
