Hope Harbor Celebrates 20 Years of Service

Posted: Updated:

This week, Hope Harbor is kicking off their 20th year serving Grand Island and surrounding communities.

The organization works to help women, children and families get what they need to succeed on their own.

"Hope Harbor seeks to not only give the homeless a place to sleep, and food to eat, but to teach the life skills necessary to become self-sufficient," Melissa DeLaet, Executive Director said. "We provide intensive case management, tailored to each individual or family's needs and experiences."

Originally known as the Community Humanitarian Resource Center, the name was changed to Hope Harbor in 2004. They offer various programs to suit the needs of those seeking help at the shelter.

"We [case managers] are able to connect our residents with the various community resources that they need and that are available to them" explained Sadie Nielsen, Case Management Program manager. "We have programs in place to continue to serve the needs of the homeless and near homeless of this fine community."
