FOURTH QUARTER NEWS
LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR - GARY KENNEY
Greetings from Safe Harbor of Erin Tennessee, I hope you are all staying healthy and safe. We here at Safe Harbor are doing everything within our power to keep your family and loved ones happy and healthy. Despite the challenges of the year, it has been amazing to see and witness our organization stay focused on our clients, their recovery, and their families. It has been a great honor to help men to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, to graduate our recovery program, and Make a Difference in the world.

As the quarantine requirements continue to impact our world, this last quarter our staff had fun providing exciting/interesting activities our clients. I am also thankful to our local staff here at the facility as they put in an extra effort toward individual care of each client. Their attention our staff has given to the clients living in a quarantine environment contributed to the positive morale of all the men. As the Holidays approached, our corporate partners and local churches contributed to the festive atmosphere that now brings us to the end of another successful year.

We want to say with all our hearts, thank you to all our employment partners, churches, recovery agencies, the Erin local stores and help community. You all have been a part of our success! In this new year we look forward to being of greater service to you all.
 
May God continue to smile upon all that we endeavor to achieve in 2021, Let’s do it together, for the clients we serve, for the families and communities they return to.

With God’s Blessing,
 
Gary T. Kenney
Director

We would like to introduce & welcome our new Assistant Director, Seth Blackmon.

"At the age of 5 I gave my heart to the Lord. Shortly thereafter I felt a longing to help people....whether it was from getting involved in my Christian School or trying to be a witness in my youth group.....I’ve always tried to find The Heartbeat of God. My hunger for lost souls increased when I was privileged to go on a mission trip to Africa. At that point God planted a seed in my heart that continued to grow from that intersection and I realized that God could truly use me. I have been given the opportunity now for even more growth. Through my walk in life, God has put me in a position to nurture that once small seed and continue to grow. I feel at Safe Harbor, that our ultimate goal is to reach people for Christ and that is my heart's true desire. The opportunity that I have here to see people to Christ and also help in the road to recovery is amazing!!
I am truly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful mission!"

STAFF SPOTLIGHT - JEFF ROBERSON
My name is Jeff Roberson. I have been working with Safe Harbor of Erin for six months. I have been in recovery for almost 3 years. I love working with other men in recovery. We all want to be the men God called us to be. I am blessed to be working staff members like George, Mr., Short, Jonathan Morris, Ann, Larry Clinton, Cedric Henderson, Seth Blackmon, and Mr. Gary Kenney.

I never really had a dad, but Mr. Gary Kenney has helped me see things about myself that I never knew. He is a wonderful Director and a man to be around. He explains things so I can understand them. I am saying all of this because all of the staff that I work with deserve this award in my opinion. We all have a heart for the men and strive at getting the job done. I have grown as a leader, man, father, and recovering addict because of these people. I love what we do more than you know!

Thanks,
-You have my heart
Jeff Roberson

CLIENT OF THE QUARTER - CHRIS COZART
"My name is Chris Cozart and I began drinking and using drugs at the age of 12 years old. I come from a Godly family and they attempted to teach me good Godly wisdom, but I rebelled and chose the world instead of living out my life in a Godly manner. I have been through three failed marriages and all had something to do with drugs and alcohol.

On a day in June of 2014 I caught a felony drug charge and was sentenced to 5 years and within a year I was out on parole. During a day I had to report my parole officer drug screened me and I failed. My wife left me because DCS got involved and they were going to take the children. I lost everything and was sent back to jail for a violation. I was given the option to enter a 6 month rehab and I chose Safe Harbor. Since I have been here I have discovered God never left my side and has a calling and a plan for my life. I have job and hope for the future I thank God every day for Safe Harbor of Erin."
