About Us

Who we are, where we came from and what we do

The Harbor provides intervention, recovery and support to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.

The Harbor is a community agency that has been engaged in this important work for 40 years.  What began in 1976 as a group of women and phone line has evolved into a thriving non-profit at the forefront of providing culturally  responsive services.   We provide services to residents of Clatsop County, and surrounding areas,  over the age of 15, and provide referral to those under 15.  Roughly 5% of Clatsop County residents utilize our services each year.

Our staff members are champions for those affected by intimate partner and sexual violence.  We are ready to listen to each individual’s story and help them navigate to a place of safety.

Through partnerships in the local area, and across Oregon, we are committed to protecting survivors.  Our goal is to break the cycle of violence through education, one on one support, practical assistance and referrals.

The Harbor is advocacy based and offers assistance with all parts of the abuse and freedom process from initial conversations with advocates where your risk is assessed, to medical & legal advocacy, to helping with emergency shelter.  Check out the wealth of information on our website to find the right information and programs for you.
