Located on the island of North Haven, one of the Fox Islands in Midcoast Maine, Southern Harbor House was founded on the belief that elders should remain part of their community.
We seek to create a comfortable, safe and nurturing environment for community elders who would otherwise be displaced from their island homes in the absence of caregiving resources.
