OC Rescue Mission’s Hope Harbor Rip Tide Program

The program is designated as a safe haven for teen boys who are at risk of homelessness, unsafe living environments, or criminalization

Hope Harbor Rip Tide

Orange County Rescue Mission has recently announced that its Hope Harbor Rip Tide Program is now open. The program is designated to act as a safe haven for at risk teen boys who may be experiencing homelessness, unsafe living environments, or criminalization, among other life altering experiences.

According to Jim Palmer, President of the Orange County Rescue Mission, the program accepts teen boys between the ages of 12 to 17 who have experienced challenging situations that can include substance abuse, mental health issues, abuse, bullying, gang exposure, and even suicidal ideation.

The organization has been actively working to keep at-risk teens safe and off the streets since 1985. In fact, for the last 18 years, it was focused on serving teen girls and the existing home was recently rebranded from Laurel House to Hope Harbor Sea Glass.

The program, which provides live-in House Parents with full-time supervision of the teens, offers individual and family counseling, mental health care treatment and referrals, academic support, drug and alcohol prevention education, and life enrichment experiences focused on college readiness and independent living skills.
