Harbor Is

Harbor is a private non-profit agency that was created in 1984 with $500 and a donated phone line.  Over 30 years later we are still committed to serving women and children in Johnston County.  Harbor is funded by United Way of the Greater Triangle Agency, State Grants, Federal Grants, Grants from Johnston County and townships within the County.  In addition to those funds and the profit generated by Pizazz we rely heavily on donations and support from our community.  Through these resources we have been able to assist thousands of families achieve independence.
