The Superior based Harbor House Crisis Shelter helps about 400 people every year.

This weekend locals helped them continue that dedication.

“If you’re homeless and you don’t have any other resources, we are that resource for you,” Harbor House Crisis Shelter executive director Barb Certa-Werner said.

A little more than 100 people took part in the faith based organization’s 4th Annual Run/Walk 5k.

Proceeds from the event will go towards utilities and supplies for their shelter and transitional living center.

“It helps us make sure that people feel like the house that we have them staying in is their home,” said Werner. “Having those amenities and all the things that they need there really is significant for them so they feel that they have dignity and respect.”

Since 2001 Harbor House’s mission has been to provide safe shelter, food, educational and career services to women and their children.

“It’s amazing how they care and how they help people in such a short length of time,” Harbor House client Jennifer Judd said. “So it’s just amazing how the love is in that place and how they help people.”
