Letter from the Director - Robert Poulston

Greeting from the Director's desk in Little Rock!

We ended the Fourth Quarter and the 2022 year with a bang. We saw the rise of our Reliable working number as it reached 75 clients working. We had an increase at our newest partner, De Wafelbakkers to 50 clients working.

God has been working miracles in Little Rock all year and He continues to show us how mighty He is when we have faith in Him. Nothing is too small for our God. 

We had our annual Christmas Party for the clients and were blessed with donation bags for each and every client to receive for Christmas. We gave out door prizes, gift cards, and an envelope full of cash. The clients were able to enjoy the Christmas season with each other and to learn more about Jesus. We gave out awards to our Sponsors that once again this year were able to help without question or complaint. 

As we close 2022, we look back at all the things that took place for our program. Some were good and some not so good, but when it is all said and done, we were able to reach more men this year and direct them towards Christ then we were able to in the past year. We saw our COVID cases go to basically nil, while our working number came close to an all-time high. 

We are grateful for what the Lord has done for us in 2022 and we are excited about the future things to come in 2023. Stay tuned, our God isn't done with us yet.

Partner of the Quarter - De Wafelbakkers

De Wafelbakkers went out of their comfort zone when they decided to partner with us. They were looking for good workers and knew that we had a track record of producing quality workers.

We started off with 5 clients. As they realized that we WERE reliable, that number grew from 5 to over 50 clients working at their plant. For the last 3 months, we have been sending on average, 10 clients per week. They have stayed loyal to us and they believe in our program.

We believe in them and are so grateful to call them our Partner of the Quarter.

We are so excited to announce Nicholas Higgins as our Staff of the Quarter.

Client of the Quarter

"What has Safe Harbor done for me? In life there are ups and downs, lefts and rights.

Even with the chaos there can be renewed life, hope and peace. Another opportunity at life. Safe Harbor has given me a chance to really get the help that I need, and I know that things will work out for me and that I have potential to be a better person. It has shown me that that people in halfway houses do care. I'm so grateful for being introduced to this program and the opportunities it brings me. Hope and promise of a new way of life, the tools needed in repairing the relationship with my supporting family, friends to share the holidays with, the will to live, hope for the future, and a whole team of staff and clients who genuinely care about you.

I've never had people in recovery, in my life, who have ever made me feel as loved and accepted as Safe Harbor. I will be forever grateful for a better relationship with God and my family, and the willingness of a group of fellow addicts and surrounding community that has made a huge impact in my life.

The fact that Safe Harbor promotes this extensively allowed me to make a big jump in a short amount of time. Safe Harbor has saved my life and forever I will be grateful."
