A greater awareness of environmental issues and growing energy costs has Safe Harbor Center increasing initiatives to implement more sustainable practices to reduce its carbon footprint and utility consumption by the end of 2023. As a result, Safe Harbor’s emergency shelter for runaway and homeless, Zach’s Place, recently received a grant from Temple Beth Tefilloh to support the implementation of energy-saving recommendations to increase sustainability and reduce resource consumption.  Through these efforts, Safe Harbor will be able to decrease operating expenses, and redirect those savings into services for the ever-increasing number of children and youth served at Zach’s Place.

A special thank you to Temple Leadership, Carla Bluhm and Dale Tushman, for their extraordinary efforts in securing this funding.
