Safe Harbor is a venue for Co-Ed Recovery and Support Groups.

Safe Harbor's Whole Woman Residential Program is a free year-long residential program for women in recovery that focuses on holistic healing in an intentional Christ-centered community aimed at long-term recovery through connection that empowers women to renew, rebuild and recover.

Safe Harbor's Greenleaf Transitional Housing Program provides low-cost, furnished, clean and safe apartments in a community for women and children looking for structure and support while preparing for successful independent living as they are offered services and taught life skills.

Safe Harbor's Day Center offers a safe place for women and children who are at risk for homelessness to access an array of services through a trained Services Navigator and provides meals, showers, laundry facilities and transportation.

Safe Harbor's On Purpose Classes are designed to help women in our programs and our community discover their purpose in life, their identity in Christ, and experience freedom.
