ABOUT US

The Harborkeepers was founded in 2016 as a non-profit grassroots-based organization with a mission to build equitable and sustainable coastal community resiliency and foster environmental stewardship. These lofty goals require intentional engagement with all stakeholders through meaningful trust-based, relationship-building in community urban spaces where people can thrive equitably. As local residents who live, work and play in the community that we are based in, we leverage everyday meaningful engagement opportunities with environmental programming while building critical partnerships and generating collective advocacy to build coastal resiliency. For us, building social resiliency is just as important as building physical infrastructure that will protect our environment and communities from increasing climate and environmental impacts.
