A letter from the Director
Bidding Farewell to 2017
I thank God for what is ahead of us, with great expectations for 2018.

2017 allotted untold opportunities to provide leadership and spiritual guidance to many men. We plan to continue this journey throughout 2018. We are striving to expand and expatiate, all while introducing new classes and material in an effort to open new doors and lead our students down new avenues.

I thank the Lord for blessing us to see a brand new year. With continual prayer, I hope to make 2018 a prosperous and successful year.
Pastor Charles Sims
Labor of Love
We want to thank Cole Ministries for their labor of love during the season of giving. The men were provided a wonderful meal.

They were also able to enjoy some fun, fellowship and received much needed gifts.
Partner of the Quarter - Medegen Medical Products
We at Safe Harbor of Memphis would like to honor Medegen Medical Products as the Partner of the Quarter. Medegen is a new partner and since we teamed up in mid October 2017, things have been great. Our students work in the production area of the plant assuring the quality of the product. We also have a few students working in the warehouse as forklift operators.

This job is a great opportunity for the students & going to a permanent employee with them is looking promising in the future.

We at Safe Harbor are extremely grateful for the new relationship with Medegen Medical Products.
Student Testimony
Blessing is the word that comes to mind when I think of the wonderful opportunities Safe Harbor of Memphis has given me.

Upon my arrival, I admittedly felt skeptical about completing the duration of my parole here at Safe Harbor. However, my skepticism quickly vanished. The warmhearted staff provided a clean slate atmosphere by overlooking my troubled past. By supplying me with a God-filled environment, a place to continue and perfect my passion and great support, I quickly advanced from a culinary student volunteer to Kitchen Manager.

I thank Safe Harbor of Memphis for enabling me to succeed with God's guidance.
Battle in the Saddle Tunica, MS
Paul Battle Arena
Jan 19 - 21, 2018

Each year Safe Harbor produces a 3 day barrel race, Battle in the Saddle. The money raised from the event helps to provide for Safe Harbor and its participants, as well as maintenance on our facilities. We wouldn't be able to see this event through without the help from our sponsors & contestants.

We had 1,055 entries from contestants all over the southeast, Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Missouri & Illinois. We paid out over $72,000 in checks & awards. Our 1D Average winner for the weekend went to the Maryville, TN cowgirl, McKenzie Morgan and her great horse, In Firewaters Honor.

Another exciting part of our race for the 2nd year in a row was the KK Run for Vegas.

Girls that are ages 16 & under can compete to qualify for their shot to run in Las Vegas at the Jr NFR. The top 3 in each age division qualify to go on to Vegas, and others have the chance to continue to accumulate points throughout the year to be able to go as well.

The division winner for the Juniors was Brentley Dowdy of Union City, TN and the Senior division winner was Avery Sprouse of Lilbourn, MO.
