Increase Your Impact 
Through Monthly Giving

Did you know that a recurring gift of $100 given each month throughout the year can be more impactful than a single gift of $1,200? When you pledge to give a monthly gift, you provide Protected Harbor with an ongoing source of income that can help sustain the programming over time. 

Your monthly gift of any size will help sustain the work we are doing in the lives of our residents. Whether you have a special place in your heart for the ladies' home, want to help the coed residents grow and thrive in their homes, or have a vision for what comes next in this ministry, your gift will make a real and lasting difference. 

Your generosity allows us to act on God's Will as we move forward in our work.  Please prayerfully consider making a monthly gift today!
