Letter from the Director - Eric Alexander
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Safe Harbor Little Rock staff would like to thank everyone for their continued support and passion for the success of this ministry, To God be the Glory!!

It is with great pleasure that I’d like to report that souls are being saved in this season, and lives are being transformed. Each Sunday clients are rushing to the altar to rededicate their lives to Christ.

We are honored that Christ will use us to further His mission and ministry. We are so preparing and excited about the upcoming revival that kicks off Oct 14th thru 18th, we know that it will be a life changing event at every location. Every year we have ministers lining up to preach and the Safe Harbor revival is sure to be a life transforming experience.

Graduation for the month of September has been the most clients at one time (5), we are grateful for our clients commitment to the completion of their programming. It’s an honor to work with men who want to make a difference in their own lives, as well as the lives of others.

Many positive things have happened over the past 3 months at Safe Harbor of Little Rock, we have 3 new van drivers that are doing a very good job and has become an vital part of our team. We have for the past months been involved in remodeling and improvements around the facility, and our clients are always eager to pitch in. Our Acc annual inspection is just around the corner and our team is committed to excellent results.

The Holidays are at our door step and we are in the process of planning holiday activities, we want our clients to experience a memorable holiday season.
 
Blessing and Honor, to the only true and wise God,
                                                                                                                                                 We give thanks and praises, now and forever.
                                                                                                                                                 Pastor Eric Alexander

Doing our Godly duty as we shared testimonies and and praised god among the people this weekend!
Spotlight Staff Member - Robert Poulston, Reliable Coordinator
Robert has had a very productive Quarter, driving many hours when short on drivers, as well as being instrumental in getting our numbers up. Robert puts his heart and soul into his commitment to serve our clients and partners.
Partner of the Quarter - Linen King
Safe Harbor of Little Rock would like to proudly present Linen King as our named Partner of the Quarter. Just earlier this year we had entered into partnership with Linen King. We started off small and the rolled all the way to having thirty people employed full time there at this present time. The jobs made available to the clients in our program are so many, that we had to reach out to clients in other programs around the Little Rock area. This is known as our Faithworks Outreach Program.

Linen King's number one principle is stated "honor God in all activities". That aligns itself with our values as well and seems to be one of the reasons why we have such good synergy with their company.

Thank you Linen King! We hope to have many more years of successful partnership with you.

“First I want to thank God for sending me to Safe Harbor, it is such a good place to work, worship and recover. I was lost like on the sea the tides throwing me in all different directions but there is a God and He decided that Safe Harbor was the place for me to be. I went there, the staff was great. They helped me in ways that I never thought and it it let me know that a person can care for others. They gave me food, a job, and helped me get closer to God. What more could I ask for. Just want to thank the staff of Safe Harbor Little Rock for really helping me to move on to the next part of my life and thanking God for putting them in my life.
Forever grateful, Jason Crone”

“Safe Harbor has truly been a Blessing. Allowing individuals the opportunity to obtain employment while becoming familiar with society. Also we are involved in classes to talk about different aspects of living a sober life. We are able to recieve assistance with clothing upon the program, Safe Harbor is truly a blessing and helps convicted individuals re-enter life with the different tools you need.”

"So Rob came to me and said "I need you to write a one page testimony" and without hesitation I said ok. And here is why I do all they ask with no hesitation.
I grew up in prison and on the needle. Until recently I had been shooting dope for 25 years. I was a loser. A nobody with no hope for the future. Life sucked and I sucked at it. I hadn't worked for years. I have never been anything in anybody's eyes but a needle junkie.
Now I am doing better than I ever have my entire life. My body is in better shape than its ever been. I have been working and they love me at work. There isn't a day I go to work somebody isn't praising me, telling me how great I am. For the first time in my life I am somebody. I am wanted and needed and it feels good. I have a chance for a future that I never dreamed I could.
Today I am spiritually, physically, and emotionally ok and for that I am forever thankful to Safe Harbor, to God and to all of you that kept me on square."
Upcoming Event - Fall Revival 2019

Client Testimony - Kevin Davidson
My name is Kevin Davidson. I was born in Hebrew Springs, AR. I was born an addict baby. I have five brothers and three sisters. My life was good until I graduated school and started hanging around with the wrong people, and the life of drugs came into play. Soon after that I ended up in prison, as my life was crumbling fast. I was released from prison in 2019 and paroled out to Safe Harbor of Little Rock. Thanks to the meetings and the staff I started to see a big change in myself. As I go forward with God, I know now that drugs needs to be far away from my mind. I have a great job, I'm clean and sober, and God is most important to me. I will always remember my past, but I will never go back. Safe Harbor, thank you for this chance. God Bless. - Kevin Davidson
Labor Day 2019
Great BBQ we had for Labor Day thanks to our kitchen manager Steven Allen!!!
Ice Cream is the remedy!
It's so hot outside! So we stayed inside and had: waffle cones, ice cream, bananas, chocolate syrup, caramel, butterscotch, nuts, sprinkles and cherries.
Having an ice cream social is definitely trending this summer in Little Rock!!
