Mission

We are located in Claremore, OK. Our donors provide the tools and support needed to help children and families affected by traumatic events heal and more forward in life. We are honored to heal families with you.

Notes from the nonprofit

Hope Harbor is a trauma-responsive family services program built on a foundation of faith and excellence. Hope Harbor’s program is unique in being Christ-centered, evidence-based, and comprehensively aimed at healing children and families affected by traumatic events. The primary need we have identified at this time is a need for programs which not only care for children, but also work intensively with parents in order to assist the entire family in making changes that will result in a healthy family environment. The program is designed to address this need. Our donors are the backbone of our mission. When you donate to Hope Harbor you provide the tools and support these families need to move forward.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Families come to Hope Harbor for many reasons, but generally families seek placement when they are tired, discouraged and seeking hope. They've tried individual counseling, family counseling, and the other resources available in their community but their child continues to make poor choices and struggle. They need something less than a hospital, but more than their family home.

Hope Harbor

Hope Harbor is here to help children and families by giving them the tools and support they need to move forward in life. Hope Harbor serves adolescents and their families in our comprehensive residential program which is built on a foundation of faith and excellence.

Cottage Life: Six youth live with each of our Residential Life Specialist couples. The cottage life is structured, consistent, trauma-responsive and faith-based. Our Growing in Character model encourages character development while providing opportunities to practice new skills and develop new patterns of behavior. Residents work through our self-paced Growing in Character model over a period of nine months to two years.

Hope Harbor Academy: All residents attend Hope Harbor Academy, our high quality accredited on-site school. Hope Harbor Academy provides responsive individualized instruction with low teacher:student ratios, allowing our residents the opportunity to remedy academic deficits with our certified teachers.

Quality Counseling: All residents participate in individual, group and family counseling provided by our highly trained staff of Licensed Professional Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists. Our consistent in-depth counseling allows residents to successfully work through past difficulties and current struggles while gaining the skills needed to navigate life and relationships. All interventions at Hope Harbor are evidence based. Counseling is directed toward individual and family successes with the ultimate goal of family reconciliation.

Intentional Hope: During the resident's time with us, parents/guardians remain actively involved with regular USPS mail, phone calls, and pass time, and remain responsible meeting their child’s medical and personal needs. Simultaneously, parents/guardians participate in family counseling, parent workshops and our Intentional Hope program. Intentional Hope is the family’s part of the work, an intensive program addressing parenting, family dynamics, vision development, and creating new patterns, which helps prepare the home environment for a successful reconciliation.

Aftercare: Hope Harbor offers an Aftercare program for all of our graduates. We keep in touch for three years after graduation, and longer if the family desires, to track outcomes and offer case management and counseling as needed.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Hope Harbor serves families with children ages 12-17 who have experienced traumatic events or adverse childhood experiences and who are making poor choices which negatively impact their personal and family lives. They do not present a current risk of harm to self or others, are not currently in withdrawal from substances, are not actively psychotic, and are able to function in our family-like cottage environment. The child and family must be willing to actively participate in our program with the goal of reconciliation. We are able to work with families who have OJA or OKDHS involvement.

Hope Harbor offers an immersive family reconciliation program designed to give your family the tools and support you need to navigate the storm, so you can enjoy peace and hope in your home. Hope Harbor serves adolescents and their families in our comprehensive residential program which is built on a foundation of faith and excellence.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.), Paper surveys, Suggestion box/email,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    We recently added a parent step-program that couples nicely with our resident step-program after hearing how much the parents enjoyed being more involved and learning more skills to build positive relationships with their children during the time at Hope Harbor. Our goal is to reconcile families so now our program encompasses that dream even more by having the parents be involved as much as possible and in positive ways. We have found that it brought our entire program to a higher level of customer service and increased our ability to help build lasting results.
