Safe Harbor’s 2014 Annual Christmas Fund
Just a glimpse of what your support means to our participants:
“This is the best Christmas in 35 years because this year I received a present.”
- Eddie T., court appointed parolee
“It meant a lot to me. It showed me that the ministry does really care for us and wants the best for us.”
- Gary W., graduates this winter
I want to start off the Christmas season by saying “thank you” for your part in supporting our program this year. Without partners like you who employ our residents, donate regularly, or attend our fundraising events, we would not be able to make a difference in so many lives. I know around this time of year you probably receive a half a dozen letters just like this one asking if you can give so that others can have a blessed Christmas. Receiving a Christmas gift is something many of us from time-to-time can take for granted, myself included. We spend so much time planning, shopping, cleaning, and cooking so that we can create that perfect holiday moment that we often times end up just trying to survive the season.
What if this Christmas we did not engage in the usual rush and stress but instead dove further within our hearts to give to someone who really needs a Christmas gift? Many of the residents at Safe Harbor will not have the opportunity to be with their family or loved ones over the holiday. At Safe Harbor, it is our goal to spread the love of Christ through something so simple as a Christmas present and holiday meal. A donation of $60 will provide a resident with a complete new outfit of blue jeans, a casual dress shirt, socks, underwear and a Christmas meal. Something as simple as a clean pair of socks, pants that fit, and a fresh shirt can be a gateway to further us in our mission to restore broken lives.
This Christmas, give the gift of value to someone who feels forgotten. I pray you’ll consider a generous financial gift to help us finish 2014 making an even bigger impact. Your gift will be greatly appreciated! God bless you!
Together we can make a lasting difference,
Barry E. Bowie , CEO

Letter from the Director – Fall/ Winter 2013
It’s a privilege to offer what we believe is an important life changing ministry. We provide Christian support and recovery for men seeking to regain control of their lives by overcoming substance abuse addictions, becoming gainfully employed, and being renewed through the power of Jesus Christ.
Currently our chaplain Mike Williams, is working very hard to provide all that is available to our students. His effort in working with the Adult Literacy Program has allowed several of the students to obtain their GED diplomas.
This past Sunday, House of Praise Church conducted an evening service for our students. It was a full service with music and their congregation. This was a huge blessing to the men at our ministry.
Lives are being touched and families put back together. Its exciting to be a part of such a great work. You can help boost the morale of the men this Christmas by sending a $60 donation. This generous gift will sponsor four men: each a shirt and a pair of blue jeans and also provide the men with a Christmas party. To show your support mail a check or call 901-382-8106 x216 to make a credit card donation today.
