Programs

hl art 040The mandate of Harbour Light is to increase client awareness and understanding of their problems, and to assist clients in building the skills they need to create new opportunities. We aim to empower our clients by treating them with dignity, respect and empathy, while offering a diverse slate of programs to help meet their needs.

Our programs are managed and operated by compassionate, caring staff with a keen investment in helping clients to achieve their goals successfully. Over 50% of our staff are in recovery from addiction themselves, and many are alumni of our program.
