Sea Glass Girls Home

Hope Harbor’s Sea Glass is an award-winning, family-centered, six-bed home nestled in a cozy, residential neighborhood. The home serves teen girls, ages 12-17, who are at risk of running away, homelessness, criminalization, or human trafficking.

Who We Serve

The teens in our home have experienced challenging life situations, sometimes including substance abuse, mental health issues, abuse, bullying, eating disorders, and even suicidal ideation.

"Just as beautiful sea glass emerges from shards of broken glass that is tossed by the sea, it is our hope that these teen girls will find beauty and resilience through their brokenness at Hope Harbor."

More than temporary relief, these teen girls 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.
