About Harbor House
Founded in 1973 and still changing Lives…
WELCOME FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, Ann R. Fisher
Welcome to Harbor House, where you get to help change the world, one person at a time.
I would like to welcome you to the Harbor House team where we believe in hope that teamwork, mutual respect, integrity, personal accountability, humility, and compassionate care that we all rise by lifting others.
Maybe you have found our website seeking addiction treatment for yourself or someone you love.
Maybe you are looking for a new employment opportunity.
Either way, at Harbor House, we all work together to offer individuals hope for recovery to improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential in health, home, purpose, and community.
Harbor House exists to help people who are unable to help themselves when they enter our doorway. Our clients come to us in active addiction, and they need genuine compassionate care and unconditional acceptance delivered in a non-judgmental, healing atmosphere. It is our responsibility to provide our clients with information and opportunity to practice a new way of living as they take their first steps on the pathway to lifelong recovery one day at a time.
Each one of us, regardless of our position at Harbor House, plays a critical role in laying the foundation of that pathway to recovery. For our collective mission to succeed, we all must show up, do our part to the best of our ability, and support one another for the good of the Harbor House community.
I welcome you to become a part of the change you wish to see in the world. Be that beacon of light that leads others from the darkness of addiction to the Sunlight of the Spirit.
Welcome to Harbor House where hope lives.
