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

They created hand-made cards and wrote words of thanks and encouragement for protecting us all during the COVID-19 epidemic. Here is a picture of our friends and protectors at Southeast Georgia Health System after receiving the cards from Safe Harbor. KEEP THE MASKS ON! ... See MoreSee Less
