Letter from the Director - Eric Alexander


Greetings from SHLR,

We are thankful for God's settled Word in Heaven, we at SHLR establishes Phillipians 4:13 We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!!! For where we are weak, He makes us strong. Because God doesn't give us a spirit of fear, but of Love, Power, and a sound mind! The challenges of this year have been enough to convince one to "throw in the towel", but we know that Jesus is our source and our help, He is indeed our very present help. There have been so many obstacles and conditions that could easily cause the most seasoned team member or client to just "call it quits". But we have come this far by faith and faith alone will see us through! This continued pandemic and new variant cause many to be waivered and not sure of what direction to go. But we know that God orders our footsteps and lights our path!

Just like our other locations, LR is experiencing the issues that cause a client to not believe in the Power of Jesus, like substance abuse for the past or present, broken families and dreams, the difficulty of embracing hope, and unsure of how to get on the right track. We have been personalizing our position with the clients we serve, meaning, making their struggles our struggles, their tears our tears, their failures our failures. How are we doing this? By being sincere during our one-on-one sessions and giving them our complete attention and concern, by sharing our personal stories of deliverance and redemption and willingness to assist in their road to "change".

It is so rewarding to see the gleam in our client's eyes, as they strive to get their lives on the right track, get reunited with their families and kids, achieve their career goals and get their finances in order, and become the men that God has called them to be!

As we prepare for the Fall season, our numbers are increasing, and with that comes coverage and staffing issues. Our goal for the ministry is always our #1 priority, "Reaching the lowest, thru the Power of the Highest", How? Helping them to "Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference".

Though we are having staffing challenges, we as a team are preparing to finish the year strong! And praying and expecting a great start to a new year, for we know that God has great things in store for those that love Him.

May the Peace of God keep you! Pastor Eric Alexander

Partner of the Quarter - Southern Glazers

Image September 24_ 2021 10_20_52 AM.jpg

Southern Glazers decided to take a leap of faith with us. They had never used a program like ours before and wanted to give our clients an opportunity to be successful. In the last quarter they have employed over 20 clients and now have a consistent 20 clients at their plant. They are a true blessing to Safe Harbor of Little Rock and all the clients that have an opportunity to work there. Their dedication doesn’t stop at employment. They also participate in our outings and cook outs and show us that they are committed to our partnership as much as we are to theirs.

Client of the Quarter - Steven Duck

I was in Tucker unit wondering what or how I was going to make it when I got out. I have been a Christian for many years, but everyone knows to you drift away until tribulation comes on you. The past year I was shot, then arrested and put back in prison. So naturally I turned back to God and studied hard every day. His word really came upon me and I asked him for a place to give me a chance. Next thing I know Safe Harbor accepted me and it has been a blessing since I got here. God is GREAT.
