Rip Tide Boys Home
Hope Harbor Rip Tide is an exciting, new, family-centered, six-bed home, located in a beautiful, residential neighborhood for teen boys, ages 12-17, who are at risk of running away, homelessness, criminalization, or human trafficking. These teens have experienced challenging situations that can include: substance abuse, mental health issues, abuse, bullying, gang exposure, and even suicidal ideation. More than temporary relief, these teen boys need the opportunity to address the deeper-rooted issues behind their state of crisis and be fully empowered to change the trajectory of their lives. Hope Harbor is the only youth shelter program in Orange County that operates as a Christ-centered, family-based therapy home environment with a good neighbor approach and provides live-in House Parents with full-time supervision of the teens at all times. Each teen receives individual and family counseling, mental health care treatment and referrals, academic support, drug and alcohol prevention education, and life enrichment opportunities focused on college readiness and independent living skills.
