Our Programs

At The Harbor, we’re committed to meeting survivors where they’re at. We believe that there is no one right way to deal with trauma. We are here to provide information so you can make your own informed decisions about what you need and want for yourself. We will be here for you every time, without judgement, no matter what.


Support Groups

The Harbor provides free and confidential support groups throughout the year.  We offer groups for adult survivors of domestic violence, survivors who experienced sexual assault and anyone healing from trauma. Support groups are open to people of all genders. Click here for details on our current groups.

Safety with Technology

There are many important factors to consider when you are dealing with the dynamics of power and control. See this article for information on the potential of being monitored through technology and some ways to increase the safety of your usage.


We believe that we can best serve our clients by building strong community partnerships so that each of the agencies in our community can focus on what they do best and together we work as a team to provide wrap-around services to meet client needs.

Emergency Shelter

We run a confidential shelter program in Clatsop county. The shelter is in a home-like environment and advocates are on hand to support survivors and provide case management. Shelter screenings are available 24/7 through our hotline (503) 325- 5735

Our Impact

The Harbor is about more than just a place to sleep or a shoulder to lean on. It’s about carefully planning with survivors so that they can safely and successfully leave an abusive relationship. It’s about providing holistic support and community that respects the identities, cultures, and goals of each survivor so that they leave shelter with new power and control over their lives. It’s about supporting survivors to be in their element, rebuilding self-love, self-worth, and self-trust.



Individuals Served in 2017

With services like our 24/7 crisis line, in-person advocacy through our drop-in center, legal and criminal justice support, emergency services to meet basic needs like food, shelter and clothing, and support groups to heal among peers.



Years Serving Clatstop County

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.



Calls Responded to

From local law enforcement and health care providers to offer in-person crisis intervention and support for survivors with urgent needs, such as emergency housing when fleeing a domestic violence situation, or accompaniment to the hospital for a forensic examination with a survivor of sexual assault.

April 2017

The advocates at the shelter helped me through some of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go though. They were respectful, gentle and compassionate with me and made me feel like I wasn’t alone.
