Virtual: MY 5K
According to a new report, Washington State’s rise in homelessness outpaced the nation’s. Harbor Hope Center is addressing the crisis by providing housing, mentoring, transportation, food and clothing to students and families in crisis. Be part of the solution by participating in your own 5K.
Pick your favorite outdoor spot—your street, the Cushman trail or along the waterfront—chart your course, run or walk the 5K (3.1 miles/6,250 steps) and let the community know you are standing up for students and families experiencing homelessness. Show your support by wearing your t-shirt on your run/walk and sharing a photo on social media tagging @harborhopecenter. The benefit of a virtual race – you can run at your own pace, on your own time. While the race officially opens 5/1 – you can choose any day that works best with your schedule. Harbor Hope Center will be sharing pictures on social media throughout the month of the event.
Youth homelessness is a growing crisis.
Harbor Hope Center is a private, non-profit organization established to serve individuals and families experiencing homelessness, poverty, hunger, broken homes, drug and alcohol-related problems.
We were created to fill the funding gap that existed between the larger cities of Tacoma and Bremerton in the Gig Harbor and Peninsula area. Our goal is to create a safety network that assists in meeting the growing economic, physical and emotional needs through our five pillars: host home program, mentoring program, food, clothing and transportation assistance.
Harbor Hope Center operates two fully-staffed Care Homes that provide transitional housing for male and female high school and middle school students who are experiencing homelessness.Your support of Harbor Hope Center positively impacts the lives of students and families in Gig Harbor and the Peninsula.
We need your immediate support to pay for housing and program expenses, operate our weekly mentoring, parenting, transportation and other urgent services and more beds for homeless and at-risk students.
