The Harbor is a day center providing people experiencing homelessness a safe place to go for respite, comfort, and access to amenities normally found in a loving home. The Harbor exists to make connections between people and services, provide access to amenities, and provide a warm meal, a shower, and a place to enjoy a conversation with friends. The congregations of the Greater Williamsburg Outreach Mission have donated the food and supplies, and their dedicated volunteers cook and serve the meals, coordinate the showers, and visit with guests.
