There are many opportunities to partner with The Harbor, either individually or as a small group.

Sponsor a Young Adult Orphan

$150 / month will support a full-time resident, providing food, education, healthcare, clothes, transportation, school supplies, household supplies, and toiletries.

Sponsor a National Staff Member

$450 / month will support a staff member. You will give a Russian Christian with professional expertise – in social work, psychology, education, or pastoring – a chance to use their skills in ministry. While many have the desire to work full-time in ministry, most can’t afford to feed their families on a typical ministry salary. But ministry done by foreigners – who often have plenty of resources – is not nearly as effective as that done by nationals. So we desire to equip nationals with the resources necessary to sustain a family while also thriving in full-time ministry.

Help Develop the Vocational Training Center

Donations designated for the VTC will go towards training orphans in The Harbor and other regional orphanages in one of five professions: carpentry, ceramics/pottery, computer programming, cosmetology, or sewing/upholstery.

If you specialize in one of these professions and would like to teach a seminar at The Harbor, email

Help Create an Endowment Fund

Thanks to the local Russian “Potanin Fund” in 2021, The Harbor will be opening an endowment fund in Russia. This fund will not only provide the longevity and sustainability to The Harbor operation for many years to come, but we will also be using it as a way to support new Harbor models across Russia, so The Harbor will open an internal grant program that will support such future models.
