Safe Harbor Treats Children Like Family

Who are we?

Safe Harbor is a home for children in need of a safe, loving environment – a place where they are treated like family. Known as local safe haven for desperate, helpless children who have nowhere else to turn, Safe Harbor is a welcoming sanctuary where children and older youth can escape abuse, torment and neglect.

Safe Harbor offers shelter from the streets and harm’s way, providing immediate aid, counsel and comfort. It is only then that Safe Harbor’s team of professionals can begin to heal wounds that are not as readily seen.  Learn More

Are you in danger? Text 44357 on your smartphone to find the nearest Safe Place site based on your location. If needed, our team will come to that site to pick you up.

Donations are one of the most important means of support for Safe Harbor.
Without valuable contributions of goods and funds from generous people and organizations, Safe Harbor would not be able to help hundreds of children escape violence, abuse and neglect each year. Learn more about donating to Safe Harbor

We are so proud of our recent high school graduates from Glynn Academy. Se'Derrick and Edith have worked tirelessly to achieve their diplomas, and both are preparing to transition from Safe Harbor and begin their college careers.

Edith will be attending Valdosta State University where she will study sociology with a goal to become a licensed therapist. Se'Derrick will be studying Business/Marketing at College of Coastal Georgia with aspirations to own a successful high-end shoe store.

As both will begin their college experience in the upcoming weeks, we need your help to ensure they have the basic needs covered for "college life". We've created an online registry of items Edith and Se'Derrick will need. If you or someone you know can help purchase an item or two from the registry we would be grateful. In the meantime, please join us in congratulating our our 2020 graduates.
