New Day Center Clients Say:


The New Day Program has changed my life

The New Day program has changed my life because of the fellowship and Bible study.  I have grown and have been more in tune with my self because of the structure. I’velearned how to deal with different situations in life.  I feel I have a closer walk with Jesus.  I can function better in life with the tools I have learned and I am very thankful!  L.S.


Today, I thank God for allowing me to see another day I thank HIM for my strength and my health although I may not be where I wanna be but I am NOT where I used to be and it was ONLY through HIS grace and HIS mercy and HIS love for me that I am here today.  This is why I continue.   Thank you God!  L.W.



Angel’s Story

homeless lady

 A place to go for healing all those broken tiny pieces.

For I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me drink.  I was a stranger and you invited me into your home.  I was naked and you gave me clothing.  I was sick and you cared for me.  I was in prison and you visited me…Matthew 25:35

Storms have come and storms have gone, a place to go and spend the day. A place to go and learn your way.  A place to go and talk and share, to show others that you care.  A place to go for healing all those broken tiny pieces.   This is what Safe Harbor is to me…….

One Saturday night, I slept on the street.

My name is Belinda, I began my journey in July 2014. I felt I had disappointed God. I needed to come home to Hickory,NC and start over.  When I got here I had no where to live.  One Saturday night I slept on the street.  Sunday morning, I felt God’s leading to go to the square in downtown Hickory. When I arrived, a ministry was there taking about Safe Harbor Rescue Mission.

When I came to Safe Harbor, Amy Marie began case management with me.   That’s when the windows of mercy started opening up.  Thank God for Safe Harbor, the New Day center and the women there.  They helped me realize that I still have a work for the Heavenly Father and that He is not finished with me yet!  I now have my own apartment and the employees of Klingspor who heard about me through Safe Harbor helped me furnish it.   Thanks be to God!  Belinda M-03/02/20015

I live in a homeless shelter, but Monday-Friday I come here for the spiritual support 


 Safe Harbor is a very organized and Christian based ministry.  The thing I like best about coming here is the learning of the Bible. Bible study is made to be a fun activity by Amy Marie (New Day Center Director). The knowledge of all the volunteers in settings we have are great. I live in a homeless shelter, but Monday-Friday I come here for the spiritual support and knowledge that we receive here at the day shelter. We cook for each other and go on field trips in which we continue to learn and grow in our spirituality. Thank you Safe Harbor for the spiritual and loving ladies here!!- T.G. 10/07/2013
