Guided by the Alexian Brothers values of compassion and dignity for all, The Harbor is an organization whose purpose is to offer supportive housing to people with HIV/AIDS who were either recently homeless or in danger of becoming homeless.
For over 20 years Alexian Brothers AIDS Ministry has been serving people impacted by HIV/AIDS at our two facilities, Bonaventure House in Chicago, and The Harbor in Waukegan. In the early days of the epidemic, Bonaventure House provided a place where people could come to die with some measure of dignity and love. As the disease evolved and treatments improved, Bonaventure House and The Harbor became places where people come not to die, but to live. The Harbor is now a 24-month transitional living program that is focused on residents becoming independent and self-sufficient. Programs and services are designed to improve resident's physical, spiritual and emotional well-being. We offer a variety of services including case management, recovery services, occupational therapy, spiritual care, and after care.

I did translation work for them and it was very rewarding to lend a hand. I wish I were just a bit closer to be around to help physically.
