Letter from the Director - Paul Garner


I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. As the Director of Safe Harbor of Erin, I wanted to take a moment to reach out and express my heartfelt gratitude to the City of Erin/Houston County.

First and foremost, I want to extend my appreciation for the incredible donations you have blessed this ministry with. Not just money or tangible things but your time and kind words.

Your support has made a significant impact on our mission, and we are incredibly grateful for your belief in our work.

With the help of Mayor Brake and the Houston County commission we are currently constructing a family area that will help our clients bond and mend broken families. This area will include a pavilion, grills, picnic tables and a play ground for their kids!

Once again, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Houston County and its residents for your kindness and generosity. Your donations will make a significant difference in the lives of many.

With sincere appreciation,

Paul Garner

We had a beautiful time at Wells Creek Sunday and the guys really enjoyed being able to swim.

So glad that God saw fit to make the ground at Calvary level. No matter your past or your present it’s open to all!

Thankful for Mr. Mark Blackmon for coming and speaking to the guys Sunday night!

Thank you to Gayle from Paris who came to Safe Harbor with his wife and grilled about 150 chickens and provided an Easter feast to our guys here in Erin. We are so thankful for the blessings you gave us!

Partner of the Quarter - xxx

Safe Harbor of Erin, is blessed to have Tennessee Bun, Crown Bakeries as a partner. In the second quarter of 2023 TN. Bun has employed an average of 24-25 of our clients. 

They are a tremendous asset to a Reliable Coordinator. They work with our men in order for them to achieve what they need to before they can leave the program. Their, and our, desire is for all the clients that work there to roll over and be full time Bun employees. That offers our men fresh out of the program a steady place of employment that some of them have never had before.

We look forward to continue growth with Crown Bakeries in the near future.

Staff of the Quarter - Gary Kenney

I am thrilled to take a moment to celebrate the hard work of a devoted servant of God, Pastor Gary Kenny. He has touched the lives of countless individuals and has been a source of inspiration, guidance, and encouragement to not only our clients but also our staff.

Throughout his tenure at Safe Harbor of Erin Pastor Kenny has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to spreading the love of Christ and fostering a spirit of unity, compassion, and faith within our organization. He has tirelessly dedicated his time, energy, and talents to serving the needs of others and leading us closer to God.

Pastor Kenny has been a beacon of hope and a source of spiritual nourishment for us. His sermons have consistently challenged us to grow in our faith, to seek a deeper relationship with God, and to live out the teachings of Jesus in our daily lives.

In addition to his impactful preaching, Pastor Kenny has demonstrated a genuine love and concern for each and every one of us. He has been a compassionate listener, a faithful counselor, and a source of support during the various seasons of our lives. His presence and care have helped us navigate through difficult times and celebrate moments of joy, always pointing us towards the hope found in Christ.

I want to express my deepest gratitude for his dedicated service, unwavering faith, and the profound impact he has made on everyone here.

It is my honor and privilege to announce Pastor Gary Kenny as Safe Harbor of Erin’s Staff of the Quarter.

With gratitude and love,

Paul Garner
