Welcome

Thank you unnamed (7)for exploring our ministry.  The heartbeat of Safe Harbor is meeting women where they are in their need, helping them experience the great love that Christ has for them through His people, walking with them on their journey to a whole and productive life.

The beauty of this ministry is that we often have the opportunity to develop deep relationships with our guests, gaining the trust that is essential for us to have a credible voice in their troubled lives. Life change most effectively takes place in relationships like these.

Supporting Safe Harbor through your prayers, volunteer service, and financial donations makes these life-changing relationships and supportive programming possible. We offer our deep gratitude to those who partner with us in this exciting work, and we invite you to call or come by to find out more about the work of “anchoring lives to Christ.”

Debbie Haynes, Founder/Program Director

The annual point-in-time count of the country’s homeless population in January of 2014, suggests there are 578,424 homeless people in the US. Just over 30 percent of those were un-sheltered, living on the street or in parks, cars, or abandoned buildings.

NC MDDDSAS says that  on average, in North Carolina more than 700,000 people (male and female) age 12 or older report being addicted to alcohol, other drugs, or both. Dependence on alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs is a complex and costly chronic illness. Even though treatment works, nearly 90% of people who abuse or depend on alcohol or illicit drugs never seek treatment.

National Overdose Deaths—  From 2001 to 2013 there was a 5-fold increase in the total number of deaths (both male and female) from Heroin. 

Abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs is costly to our Nation, exacting more than $700 billion annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity and health care.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, approximately 50 percent of individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness are affected by substance abuse. About 37 percent of individuals with alcoholism and 53 percent of individuals with drug addictions have at least one serious mental illness.
