Letter from the Director, David Elkins
Wow what an opening year! For the last 6 months Safe Harbor of Jefferson County has sprang into action to serve 30 men who desperately needed a place where they could refocus their lives on Jesus and navigate through this complicated world, we now live in. As a staff we've learn many things, understanding that there is no simple answer to the hurt and disappointment that this world sometimes leaves us in. Our resolve is to serve these men God has brought to us back into the men He designed them to be.

We've had the opportunity to meet many new friends and partners that believe in the work of Safe Harbor Jefferson Co. and excited to work with the community in restoring lives in East TN. Reuniting families, equipment fathers, husband, and sons to go back and lead their families as Christ led the church. Looking forward to our largest graduation ever in January! 

We are excited to start the new year with a vision of growth and opportunity for our clients.

Proverbs 29:18 (CSB) Without revelation people run wild, but one who follows divine instruction will be happy.
Please be in prayer with us as we have a vision too build cabins around the property for men's living quarters. With an awesome view of the Great Smoky Mountains we feel compelled to use what God has given us to provide quality living quarters for the men we serve.   

We want you to be a part of what God is doing at Safe Harbor Jefferson Co. and welcome your involvement. Please contact us as God leads you.

1 Timothy 1:5 (CSB) Now the goal of our instruction is love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith.

Blessings,
David Elkins

Client of the Quarter - Joseph Arwine
"Let's just say I pretty much struggled with addiction my whole adult life. Been in and out of rehabs and programs only to relapse again. Came to Safe Harbor looking for a better way to handle my struggle with addiction and found it. Here I've been given the tools necessary for enhancing my relationship with my Lord and Savior, my outlook on the future has never been brighter, and the opportunities that’s been provided through Safe Harbor is encouraging. I graduate in January and will start a new career with C Laney & Sons then. After graduation I plan to stay involved with the men of Safe Harbor as a volunteer and mentor. Thank you Safe Harbor."
