Harbour House Family Center is an emergency shelter located in a residential area of New Bedford, MA with accommodation for sixteen families.
Families are referred to their family center through the Department of Housing and Community Development.
While at Harbour House families receive a wide array of services including but not limited to case management, housing search assistance, educational groups etc.
As a family center, it is primarily children that are affected by homelessness and we strive to maintain an atmosphere of support, encouragement and caring.
Education is key in a child's growth and development and the recent opening of a childcare facility on site through NorthStar Learning Centers has given families the opportunity to receive early education and care services.
School-age children receive tutoring/mentoring services twice weekly through their School on Wheels program.
