Letter from the Director - Chris Somerville

Greetings from the staff here at Safe Harbor of Bucksnort. We'd like to start off by telling you we appreciate your interest in Safe Harbor of Bucksnort and taking the time to read this newsletter gives us the opportunity to inform you of events and advances at this location.

A lot has changed over the last few months with renovations and upgrades. We would like to announce that in lieu of changes in the world today we have not stopped our primary focus and goal; helping those in need through the power of Christ. In these times, more so than others, there is many souls that need reaching.  

This quarter at Safe Harbor of Bucksnort was filled with many exciting activities. We have started having monthly campfires where guys roast hotdogs and marshmallows, drink hot chocolate, play guitar, and get to enjoy our new game room that is up and running. This gives the opportunity to fellowship with each other in sobriety.

During the upcoming season, we are expecting and believing for a windfall of blessings in the form of upgrades and possible property acquisition. Believe with us as we move forward with our upgrades and continuous efforts in improving Safe Harbor Bucksnort for the betterment of the men in our care. We thank you for being a supporter and would love to hear from you. May God bless and protect your household in these times.


To anyone reading this, if there is someone that you know needing our program, please feel free to call upon us.

Congratulations to our Graduates!

Time to unwind!

Rest is such a vital part of recovery. Without rest we don't have time to pause and reflect. When we are able to relax we give our mind a chance to absorb what we have learned. Recovery is a marathon, not a sprint and giving ourselves a break is one important thing we can do to make sure that we are able to keep going.
