Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ

It has been the most trying 1st Quarter in SHLR history, it seems like, with all the COVID protocols and vaccines being offered. It is a challenge to stay optimistic with the working numbers moving at a snails pace, But we are gearing up for a hit all at once. We are seeking GOD's direction as we enter into the Charles Capps " God's Creative Power" insights lead by our Founder Pastor Gregory Newcomb. The staff is enjoying the reading of the passages in staff meeting and in the Chapel services. Battle in the Saddle was a blast!! This year we enjoyed helping with the event, the clients continue to talk about how much they liked the event. We are looking forward to new partners in April and our numbers going up.
Our Director, Pastor Eric Alexander, shares his story on the Mindset Mastery Podcast.
Safe Harbor of Tipton County is set to open June 1, 2021. Our new facility is located on a 20 acre campus, which was built in 1905 as Dunlap Orphanage. One of the founders of the orphanage said that they wanted to build a place to see little hands discover what God has for them. We are proud to continue that vision as an orphanage, the only difference is the hands are bigger!

We will be able to house 74 men in our Safe Harbor of Tipton County Program and 16 women in our Fresh Start Program at the new property in Brighton, TN. This campus will also house our Administrative Offices. We are so excited to be able to expand to this beautiful location and continue the work of Safe Harbor that was started over 25 years ago.

​We want to continue to shine the Light of Jesus into the darkness of this world to see these now bigger hands discover the freedom and life God has for them! God’s ways are higher than our ways; His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. It’s overwhelming to think back to every step He ordered for this moment. We give Him glory, Amen!

Working with Calvin and Bryan has been an easy and enjoyable process over the last quarter. We look forward to continuing this partnership over the many years to come. 
"I have spent most of my adult life incarcerated behind drugs and theft. I am 42 years old and I have never had my own place. The night Pastor Eric accepted me into admission to Safe Harbor of Little Rock I had been out on the streets of downtown Little Rock sleeping in the trash dumpster in front of Regions Bank. It was so cold that night I had to crawl in to the dumpster to stay warm. At 4:30 AM the truck came to empty it I was almost dumped and smashed with the rest of the garbage. I knew change or death lie ahead. All I know is I am something good because God don’t make no junk. I got to accept change and embrace it. Now I have a good job, a good work ethic and I’m living a better life."
Congrats to our graduates - Bobby Martin, Jarrod Vaughan, Quincy Hamilton, Robert Smith, Randall Lewis, William Madison, Jimmy Jerome, & Harold Parks!
