Hope Harbor Heroes

Give monthly to Hope Harbor! We could meet our monthly budget if we had 300 monthly donors of $10 or more. (One time major gifts are also always greatly appreciated.) There are many definitions of what a hero is, but a Hope Harbor Hero is dedicated to providing safe and stable housing for women and children recovering from domestic abuse. Anyone can be a hero simply by committing to a monthly or one time donation. By making this commitment, our heroes are ensuring that we are able to provide life skills classes, case management, counseling, education, bible studies, and hope to the women and children living in our home. Help us bring hope and healing to Lincoln County and Mescalero!
