THIRD QUARTER NEWS
Letter from the Director - Gary Kenney
Thank you for taking the time to read and hear about the great and wonderful things that take place every day at our Safe Harbor Facilities. As the Director of the Erin facility, I consider it a great privilege and honor to serve the communities we service. I realize that God has given us the opportunity to know the great fathers and sons that come here to be reunited with their families after a challenge that life has dealt to them. 

The staff here at this facility are committed to the recovery of each client, and the families that are quietly in the background supporting them. I am excited to be working with such a passionate, caring team.

Congratulations to our new Assistant Director, Matthew Ellis, who will add to the great facility climate and service to the clients during the evening hours. Also to our new Reliable Coordinator, Jeffrey Roberson, who will continue to insure that our clients get employment opportunities. 

The Denver Story

Everyday at Erin in the life the men we serve, many end in stories that inspire for a lifetime. Like Denver Martin; a client who's time here was to end in him returning to finish his term in jail. After his successful completion of all program requirements, consistent progress reports from our admission office, a letter from the Director and Director of Operations, the court resolved to release this client from the program to the freedom of his family. 

As we go into the fall and holiday season, we are preparing to make sure that our clients experience the fun and excitement these times. Please feel free to contact us for any volunteer services, food, or clothing contributions that may help enhance the services we will provide to our clients during the coming seasons.

Many Blessings to you all,

Gary Kenney
Director
Safe Harbor Erin

Fly on Fighter - Pastor Scott Russell
It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Pastor Scott Russell.

Safe Harbor of Erin will forever be impacted by Pastor Scott and his love for our program. While he was battling cancer, he still made it a priority to come to Safe Harbor to hold church services and check on all of us. When COVID impacted visitors coming to our campus he continued to check on the staff & clients. He was truly a man with a Servants Heart. Please be in prayer for his family, his church members, friends, and everyone he impacted. He has won his fight with cancer, and is healed forevermore.

#FlyOnFighter. We love you Pastor Scott

Staff Spotlight - Anna Jones
Ms. Anna Jones joined the Safe Harbor family on June 25, 2020. Our Admissions office was in transition from the excellent work of our outgoing admissions coordinator. Erin had great concern concerning the continuance of that excellence in our admissions office. During the interview process Anna's professionalism and care for servicing people with passion stood out from all the other interviewees. She has jumped in with both feet renewing contacts with our partner agencies. Our clients know we care as a result of her exceptional caring communication in the community and with clients in the facility. Our admission office just received high marks by our Regional Director because of her office procedures. We are privileged to have Ms. Anna Jones on our team.
Client of the Quarter - Anthony Seals
"I first want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for leading me to Safe Harbor, because of Christ alone I am here today. Before I came to Safe Harbor I had a head on collision that almost killed me, after I woke up in the hospital I knew at that very moment my Lord had a plan for me, and it was not drinking alcohol or doing drugs. After I left the hospital I wanted to change and I did that day. I realized God was real and in my life thanks to Safe Harbor staff, the the recovery program, and Christian service. I'm a new person, a better man, clean, sober, and alive. I feel so much more powerful than I ever have. Thanks to God's grace, mercy, and His Holy Spirit leading me to Safe Harbor.
In Jesus Name, I'm blessed.
Anthony Seals"
