Through December 14, Main Street Theater is collecting unwrapped presents for children ages 5 – 18 to give to Today’s Harbor so that all children may have Happy Holidays! We hope you will bring a gift with you when you come see The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

Today’s Harbor For Children is a residential community for youth. With more than 70 years of experience providing resources, support and guidance to kids in crisis, this organization is a changemaker and advocate for abused and neglected children throughout the southeast Texas region. The Harbor houses up to 64 children in 8 cottages licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services in a seaside campus in La Porte, Texas.

Today’s Harbor for Children’s unique approach utilizes placefamily structure and choice to act as a force of change in addressing all facets of abuse and neglect. These three key elements empower children to overcome self-destructive patterns, break cycles of abuse, develop social skills, learn responsibility and ultimately take back their own life path, becoming our next generation of neighbors, coworkers, friends and families.

The average age of a child living at the Harbor is 10 to 12 years, with approximately 50 percent boys and 50 percent girls. The average length of stay is two to three years; however, some children may spend their entire childhood at Today’s Harbor for Children. Each year they provide residential care for over 100 children. Since its inception, thousands of children have called Today’s Harbor for Children their home.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Herdman kids are the most horrible children imaginable.  They are disrespectful, they lie, they even smoke cigars.  When they show up at church one Sunday and decide to participate in the annual Christmas pageant, everyone is worried.  But when the Herdmans collide with the Pageant, the true spirit of Christmas is revealed!
