Today's Harbor for Children Programs

For 75 years, Today's Harbor for Children has served as a safe haven for abused and neglected children throughout the southeast Texas region. The Harbor serves children who are rescued from unsafe and unhealthy living environments due to their caregivers' dangerous behavioral issues. Children at the Harbor live in family-style cottages with trained house or foster parents, who along with our staff, connect them with the individualized resources they need to recover and thrive.

The Harbor provides a consistent, small group environment for children that empowers them to overcome self-destructive patterns of behavior, break cycles of abuse, and develop social skills. Promoting self-motivated behaviors both academically and socially that emphasize perseverance, leadership, self-confidence, and communication is also encouraged.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
