Shelter

Safe Harbor is a residential shelter for abused women and their children. The primary objective of this facility is to provide a supportive shelter experience for the family to establish its own healthy living environment. As a Health Department program, it provides mental health services and drug treatment, as well as prevention and parenting education.

A significant aspect of the shelter experience for children includes a respite from observing violence in their own homes. The time spent in shelter can illustrate how a peaceful, non-threatening environment encourages a healthier resolution for conflict.
