Harbor House 5K Fun Run-Walk and Health Fair

This is an event to help raise funds for our homeless and runaway youth, ages 10-21, throughout Ocean and Monmouth Counties.  Ocean's Harbor House has been around since 1985, providing housing, assistance, and supportive services to youth in need.

The need is great:

  • There are 2.8 million homeless youth throughout the U.S.
  • More than 75% of homeless youth will NOT graduate from high school - we turn this statistic around and enable more than 75% of the young people we serve graduate high school.

Ocean's Harbor House has three main programs (Emergency Youth Shelter, Outreach Program and Transitional Living Program) that reach more than 8,000 young people each year. 

Ocean's Harbor House provides housing to apprximately 145-200 young people each year.

None of this would be possible without your support.  We sincerely appreciate all that you doto assist us in our mission to help the most vulnerable in our nation, our homeless and runaway youth.  THANK YOU!  :-)
