Letter from the Director, Eric Alexander
This is a day that the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it!! Greetings from Safe Harbor Little Rock!

Excitement is in the air this holiday season, everyone is in a festive spirit. Clients have participated in decorations and spending holiday cheer. We are pleased to report that we are at 95% capacity, and expecting new arrivals any day now. It is now time to reflect on this years accomplishments and shortcomings to gauge what this year achieved, and also look forward to goals for the new year.

We are having a special requested baptismal service this Sunday, where 6 clients have requested so, this is a great gift just in time for Christmas. And Speaking of Christmas, we are grilling turkeys and baking hams right now and they are looking delicious. Our Client and staff Christmas Party is Friday Dec 20th and Talent Show is planned,along with invisible box challenge and other fun favors.

For the month of December, we have had nine graduates; totaling a new quarterly recorded of 21.

We had a great fall revival, where Friday night 10 men came to be baptized, and this quarter along brought over 30 men for re-dedication.

It is awesome to have Pastors from the community come in and preach as well as share their story, it is nothing short of spending quality time with the clients. 

We are look forward to a great year at SHLR in 2020. We are expecting an increase in every area of the ministry, & we are now having more clients than ever saying they want to be a part of this ministry. 

Just remember "God has plenty, in 2020"!

Client of the Quarter - Patrick Smith
"My name is Patrick Duane Smith. I would like to share some information on how I have been truly blessed with the help of Safe Harbor, and the resources that the programs offers to those in need.

It has allowed for me to get closer to God through the teaching of the Bible and the classes that offer important information about life skills that can be used once I start my new life in being successful. The back to work program is also very important. I have learned some new skills that I did not have before. I have learned how to be an important employee of the company through good work habits and to be a team member.

Through the back to work program I am learning how to save money, which I have not done before and now I understand the importance of saving.

I thank God daily for this program. I could still be somewhere in this world lost. I am very thankful that today I have been found. God truly is a good God.

Thanks Safe Harbor for all you do."
