Chaplains on the Harbor

Chaplains on the Harbor is a ministry of presence in Grays Harbor County, Washington, a developing worshiping congregation, and a faith-based center for rural leadership development in the movement to end poverty. We seek to affirm the dignity and worth of people living in Grays Harbor and to seek for a better life for a community struggling with deep poverty. We open in two locations as a community center, we host a popular education program called The School of Hard Knocks, we offer support to homeless encampments around the county, and we do regular jail ministry.
