Emergency shelter and housing support for Youth
The Harbour is a 501(c)3 organization providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, and supportive services to youth aged 12-21 and who are experiencing homelessness 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 45 years, The Harbour has and continues to offer safe, stable housing to our youth in need and provides guidance that may be absent in their lives. Thousands of youth have passed through our doors who were deflected from long-term homelessness and are now living on their own.
