Safe Harbour’s mission is to provide families with an alternative to family violence. We offer safety, encouragement and support. Safe Harbour provides shelter, counseling, advocacy, support groups and community awareness education.
Some of our families arrive with just the clothes they had on when they had to flee their home. We hope that Safe Harbour is their new beginning, as we provide for all of their needs while in shelter. Our goal is to create a safe place for families to stay by providing a confidential shelter and a supportive living environment that allows domestic violence victims to make informed choices about their future.
When someone calls Safe Harbour, we can help in many ways. We offer crisis counseling and referrals to other area services as necessary. If someone is seeking shelter, we determine their needs and help them decide if shelter is the right alternative. Sometimes, just talking to one of our trained caregivers gives the victim a new perspective to make decisions about their future. Our legal advocates will accompany them through proceedings in Court and our support groups always welcome new members who want to change the direction of their lives. Education about domestic violence is critical to helping our clients make informed decisions about their lives.
