Our Philosophy of Leadership
We believe in healing here, and we believe that transforming unjust social structures from the bottom up is entirely possible. At Chaplains on the Harbor, we look to support leadership among the people who are struggling most in this county—people who have been locked up, thrown out, and often forgotten by those in power.
We truly believe that everyone can be a leader on some level, no matter where they are at. We also provide staff leadership opportunities for a core group of people in our base who have managed to work through some of their own healing and stabilize.
In a community with limited resources and a lot of instability, supportive employment is a game-changer in building the long-term leadership of directly-impacted people.
