Letter from the Director, Paul Garner
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 78 residents and have 68 working full time jobs at our various partners. Over the past year we have housed 280, graduated 54, saved 131, and baptized 53.

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 Apostle Hope and his congregation for taking the time and money to supply and cook an entire Thanksgiving meal for Safe Harbor of Memphis on Thanksgiving day!

Last but not least, I would like to thank Oak Grove Baptist Church for the much needed clothing and gift items for Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Paul Garner

Client of the Quarter - Johnathon Moore
"My name is John Moore when I first came to Safe Harbor I had a very negative attitude and was mad with the world. But after taking the time to settle in and get to know more about the program and giving the program a chance it has made a big difference in my attitude as well as in my life. The program has helped me change not only how I view and feel about myself but it has also had a major impact on how I view and treat others around me. Due to the classes and the support from the staff at Safe Harbor of Memphis I have learned new ways of dealing with my everyday struggles in life and how to communicate my concerns and problems instead of holding them in. Before coming to Safe Harbor I was living day by day trying to make ends meet but since being here I now see that there is light at the end of the tunnel for me. I look forward to going to work every day something that I did not have to look forward to in the past. I have also started to believe in myself self and now I feel that God has a purpose and a plan for my life."

Spotlight Staff of the Quarter - Douglas Campbell
This quarters staff spotlight goes to Mr. Douglass Campbell. 

We often say that the hour of death cannot be predicted. We always imagine that this hour would be in the distant future not today. Mr. Campbell sadly passed away on November 26th 2019.

I did not have the privilege of knowing Mr. Campbell for a large amount of time but from the stories and sadness I see in everyone’s eyes I can tell he was a great man dedicated to Safe Harbor.

I would like to end with this quote - "When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."
