Dear Friends of Harbor House,
“I believe in the sun even when it is not shining, I believe in love even when I cannot feel it, I believe in God even when he is silent.”
This is the first thing you see when you enter our Pi House. These words were found carved into the cellar wall of a concentration camp at the end of World War II in Cologne Germany.
As you know, we at Harbor House are in the midst of a wonderful new endeavor for the benefit of young men who are aging out of foster care. The excitement around this home is palpable at the moment.
In America today there are over 440,000 children living in foster care. In California there are over 60,000. The trauma that these children experience in the midst of growing up is heartbreaking. The opportunity to make a small dent in these devastating numbers is a gift for which I am extremely grateful.
This beautiful house is only possible because of the generosity of so many of you.
We hope you share the joy and excitement we feel at the hope of this home for young men who need a caring and nurturing home in which to learn some of life’s most important lessons around successful, independent living. We ask you to join with us in asking God’s blessings on this project and on the young people it will serve.
