Ocean's Harbor House Youth Shelter
2455 Windsor Ave
Toms River, NJ - 08753
Ocean's Harbor House is a safe haven for youth, ages 10-21 who have run away, are homeless or have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Our organization is committed to providing quality services that respond to the growing and changing needs of youth and HD Fundraiser families in the Jersey Shore region. We are joined in our commitment by a variety of partners and friends who provide financial support through grants and donations, those who volunteer their services and skills, and those who help fill our Wish Lists by donating food, clothing, furnishings, and office supplies. This collaboration throughout the years has enabled Ocean's Harbor House to become a strong voice for the needs of troubled youth and families. This also allows us to provide all our services free and confidential.
The shelter has twelve (12) beds to house youth up to the age of 19. In addition to providing emergency shelter placement, Harbor House provides home-cooked meals, clothing, counseling, case management, recreation, transportation and medical services. Primary and residential counselors assume proactive roles in stabilizing the children upon admission. Further, the shelter operates a 24-hour hotline, with drop-in services to help identify the most appropriate agency and/or community services that the youth or family needs.
