Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Safe Harbor of Memphis! As we come to the end of the fourth quarter at Safe Harbor of Memphis, I am proud to say that we house 62 residents and have 50 working full time jobs at our various partners. Over the past year we have housed 263, graduated 64, and baptized 28.

This last quarter has truly been a blessing and humbling to see how many donors/organizations have donated and poured into our men to ensure they have the best Holiday Season possible. We could not have done it without you! 

I would like to thank Pastor Mark Fisher and Oasis Worship Center for supplying Thanksgiving Dinner for 2 Safe Harbor locations! Your generous donation supplied over 160 meals to the men of Safe Harbor!
I would also like to thank Pastors Roy & Trina Ewing from Threefold Cord Marriage & Family Ministries and their congregation for taking the time and money to supply, and cook, an entire Thanksgiving meal for Safe Harbor of Memphis on Thanksgiving day, and then again on Christmas! 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Paul Garner

Safe Harbor of Memphis proudly announces AFCO Industries as our partner of the quarter. We started a partnership back with AFCO Industries on December 07, 2020. 

AFCO Industries, a 100% employee owned company was founded in 1946, and is one of the nations leading building products manufacturers. With plants in Olive Branch, MS, AFCO is a vertically integrated producer of aluminum, plastic, and fiber glass products. The company's products can be found in the home centers, lumber yards, and distributors nation-wide. Many of the best known pre-hung entry door systems include AFCO weather-strip. AFCO is also a leading provider of fabricated aluminum components for other manufacturers with services that include extruding, machining, welding, precision cutting, punching, and power coating. 

AFCO currently employees 8 of our men, with another 4 in the process of being hired. We would not be able to do what we do without the dedication, support and job opportunities provided to our clients without AFCO. 

We hope that our relationship will continue throughout the years with growth in trust, reliability, and keeping them happy as ALL of AFCO management treats our men no different then any other AFCO family member. I can truly say AFCO has been a blessing to our men. 
This quarters staff spotlight goes to Suzanne Green. Suzanne has been with the ministry just over a year. She has worked her way up from graduating the women's program, to van driver, and now Admissions Coordinator. 

She leads her department with hard work and dedication. There is no one that is more dedicated in seeing our clients succeed. It has been a true honor to work with such a hardworking and caring individual. 
Congratulations to our graduates; Jerome Bell, Adam Johnson, Dominick Pegues, Tyrone Whitten, John Floyd, Nicholes Callahan, & Trevanno Stewart!

I am so very grateful for Safe Harbor of Memphis. It has been like a refuge for me. I have gotten a second chance at life. It has been a very special place for me to take what I call a spiritual timeout. Time to get closer to God, time to evaluate myself, time to work on all the things that I have acquired to make me the negative person that I has become. I have gotten a chance to learn and apply certain knowledge and applications to change me into a positive and productive citizen as well as a better Christian.

The key to Safe Harbor, to me, is mindset. You have to have the right mind set to allow God to help you. So that he can bless you, change you. 

THANK YOU SHM for allowing me another chance. 
Congratulations to our graduates; Keith Ridgeway, James Forrest, & Richard Snyder!
Happy October Birthday to Jerome Bell, Nicholes Callahan, Herman Carr, & Harry Wilson!

Our largest fundraiser for each year is coming up. Our original date for our event was Jan 15 - 17, 2021, but due to the current Covid restrictions in Tennessee we have had to change our event date.

Our new date is March 19 - 21, 2021. We are excited that we are still able to have this event, even if we did have to change the date. It may be in our favor to have a little warmer weather in March!

We have contestants from all over the United States planning to compete at our event. Last year we even had a contestant all the way from Canada! We are excited to see how much we are able to raise this year for Safe Harbor.

If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please contact our Director to let him know that you would like to have more information on our sponsorship packages.
