• Clark Family makes huge impact

    Since 2005, the Clarks have made a huge impact through volunteering with Children's Harbor. From working at the Thrift Store to volunteer boating to helping with logistics at the Christmas Market and Selwood Clay Shoot to cooking meals for campers, they have done it all and been a huge help to the organization in every endeavor.

  • Cinderella Ballerina Ball

    “A dream is a wish your heart makes” and we want to make the dream of attending a Ballerina Ball with Cinderella a reality for seriously-ill little girls. For two short hours we want to erase their daily struggles with their illness and give them and their parents treasured memories.
    Your tax deductible donation will be such a precious gift and will make many dreams come true.

  • Summer Camps

    Help us bring the joy of summer camp to more kids by making a donation. Your gift of any amount helps give these seriously ill kids an experience of a lifetime! Recent donor Andrew LaBarbera said after he made his camp support gift, "Children's Harbor presented the need and made it easy for me to decide to help. The picture was clear, these kids deserve a fun-filled and relaxing retreat away from the daily struggles a chronic illness brings."
