AUA believes that all children have the right to a quality education as well as a supportive and safe place to grow and learn. This month we are combining our monthly volunteer mix and mingle with a Back-to-School drive benefiting Boys & Girls Harbor to support this great organization in their mission to provide healthy, comprehensive residential care for children and families in crisis.
Each year the Harbor provides residential care for over 100 children. Since its inception, thousands of children have called the Harbor their home. (more info below)
Kids head back to school Monday, August 28th and AUA is helping get them ready to learn!

About Boys & Girls Harbor
The mission of Boys & Girls Harbor is to provide healthy, comprehensive residential care for children and families in crisis. For children who are experiencing family hardship, neglect, abandonment or abuse, the Harbor provides a family environment in a home setting.
Through its programs, the Harbor strives to help children learn to overcome self-destructive patterns, break cycles of abuse, develop social skills, learn responsibility, and work towards becoming healthy, happy, and productive members of society.
