donationsYour donations keep Harbor House open and able to help more survivors of domestic violence and their families. 

Your donations and support are critical to our mission of providing specialized services to survivors of domestic violence in Kankakee and Iroquois Counties. Without your investment in our mission, we could not empower survivors, helping them heal and break their personal cycle of violence. 

You can support Harbor House through monetary donations, fundraisers, including Harbor House in your estate plans, donating items and shopping at our Resale Shoppe, and more!
