After months of planning and community input, the coalition established Cumberland County Coalition for Shelter, Inc., on February 17, 1986. The name of the organization was changed to Safe Harbour, Inc. in June 2002.
Safe Harbour is governed by an independent Board of Directors and derives its financial support from individuals, organizations, churches, fees paid by residents, commercial rents, investments, foundations, federal and state grants, as well as the United Way. Annually Safe Harbour, Inc., invests significant funding in the facility to improve the quality of the lives of the residents.
Safe Harbour continues to change and grow as we endeavor to provide services to the homeless and potentially homeless of Cumberland County. Safe Harbour’s program is not a quick fix. It is hard work, for both the residents and staff. Not all residents succeed in completing the program, but most do.
