History of Safe Harbor

Send this page to a friend Email envolope
In 1991 a need to serve the homeless population that was not served elsewhere
was recognized. Safe Harbor began operating on the 2nd floor of The Salvation
Army at 212 N Roosevelt Street during the winter months. Residents would pull
out cots at 10:00PM every night and put them away at 7:00 AM.

When The Salvation Army Corps moved in 1995, Safe Harbor took over the entire
building adding meals, showers and laundry services for the residents. In 1997 Safe
Harbor expanded the hours to 5:00 PM to 8:00 AM year round and added case managers to the staff. Safe Harbor now operates 24 hours a day for those residents who work second and third shifts jobs.
