Mission: Investing in mothers is at the heart of the mission of My Safe Harbor. We do not provide crisis intervention. Instead, we provide a place for the "next step" for mothers who have weathered a crisis and are ready to do the long, hard work of changing their lives and the lives of their children. At MSH, we are literally mothering mothers -- many of whom have had little or no access to adequate role models. Our programs build trusting relationships and equip mothers with real, life changing tools that empower honest personal assessment and the dignity of self-reliance.
Target demographics: build strong families and break generational cycles of poverty and dysfunction
Direct beneficiaries per year: 128 mothers with 320 children and have graduated 7 cohorts of the Strong Families Institute
Geographic areas served: Long term support for low income mothers committed to changing their lives and the lives of their children.
Programs: The Mothers Clubs and Electives introduce women to the MSH culture, present new opportunities and begin the relationship building process. Enrichment Electives are 2-6 weeks sessions that are more in-depth and require pre-registration. Topics range from crocheting and cooking to computers and parenting. and there are expectations for attendance and commitment. The Strong Families Institute (SFI) is our intensive, year-long program where the real work of change begins. It It offers over 100 class hours over 32 weeks for in-depth information, participation and evaluation. Go to our website for more information.

My Safe Harbor is enabling single mothers in Anaheim, CA learn to be productive, independent citizens and better parents. Through programs like Mother's Club, Learning Electives and Strong Families Institute, mothers are learning how to raise children that will stay out of gangs, and become great parents themselves. Moms learn everything from fun crafts with their kids, to cooking nutritious and inexpensive meals, to budgeting and financial tools, to self-evaluation and self-confidence. MSH has already affected the lives of over a hundred mothers and several hundred children in just three years. The most telling statistic is that several of the graduates of the Strong Families Institure have become mentors for women in following groups.
