Safe Harbor

Safe Harbor supports resilience and fosters hope in the community by empowering individuals and families. Safe Harbor is an all volunteer non-profit agency providing many services to assist children, teens, adults and families healing from trauma. Some of the programs we provide are trauma sensitive play groups, teen groups, community events for educational purposes and social events to bring the community together.We have started a play therapy program and teaching English to adults of all cultures. These programs are all free to our families. Safe Harbor is listed in the national Supervised Visitation Directory. Families and courts utilize Safe Harbor to facilitate supervised parenting time. Included in that program is therapeutic visits, observational visits, and monitored drop-off and pick-up during a custody exchange. Due to the COVID pandemic and the storm Ida many of our families suffered extreme losses; loss of employment, difficulty with school for the children, furniture and personal items lost in the storm. Safe Harbor has provided assistance in these areas so our families did not have to endure additional trauma. We were there for them. At this time, Safe Harbor's major need is financial so we can continue offering services at no cost and providing our families with items of necessity.
