a day at the cove

The Cove is an activity center located in the heart of Harbor House Ministries. This building provides the space and equipment needed to best help each person build upon individual skills and enrich his or her daily life.

Our Cove program for adults with severe physical and mental impairments includes activities and therapies designed to increase or maintain mobility, communication, and independence.  

While each day at the Cove is unique for every individual, a typical day begins with devotions and worship together.   Then, we split into different groups.  While one person goes out for coffee with a friend, another is working on range of motion in the swimming pool, and a third person is taking a bike ride, or working on the computer.

Each person, with the help of family and friends, sets the goals he/she would like to work toward.  Every activity at the Cove is designed to support those goals.  Progress toward each goal is documented and measured so the individual can recognize his/her success.

"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me."

- JOHN 9:2-4a
